Staying Focused on 2015 Fitness Goals with Sears

Friday, January 23, 2015

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Sears.  I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

We are several weeks into the new year and yet many of us still lack the motivation to stay on track with our fitness goals.  Two of the major road blocks that prevent me from staying on task is my busy life and my boredom.   And my favorite ways to workout are pretty simple - running, lifting weights, and basic cardio exercises.

I struggle to stick to my fitness routine  especially when life gets busy.  With 2 jobs and a lot of other things going on, it's easy for me to make excuses.  Another thing that holds me back is how bored I get with the same routine. I need to spice things up but the problem with that is that I lack creativity myself so I can't think of any new ways to get my exercise in, therefore I try to give up.   But not this year!    This year I am using, a one-stop resource for fitness online.  It has daily workout challenges, product review, promotions, and much more!    Oh, and it's free! is making it so much easier to choose and researching equipment and gear since I can just watch video reviews and read what other customers have rated certain products.  I also can stay motivated because offers rewards for daily physical activity through the Points for Progress program and #Achieve15 fitness tips.  Yes, that's right... one of my MAJOR road blocks of NOT exercising everyday can now be kicked down.  It's so nice to be able to get new ideas for exercises and daily tips for working out.

And when I need to shop for gear, has new gear reviews and ratings for each piece of equipment and it's based on performance, console, comfort, features, and value.  Every review includes a video testimonial too which is great for me since I'm visual.  I love how unique features get highlighted and it really helps me make a confident purchasing decision based on other members' ratings. 

Since I'm always on a budget, I also love the personalized Deal of the Day.  Sears has top brands such as NordicTrack, Life Fitness, AFG, ProForm and more, all with the lowest prices guaranteed.  You can select the type of gear or equipment you are shopping for and a Deal of the Day for that item will be loaded into your Shop Your Way account!  Make note that members can receive 1 deal a day but you have to redeem that offer within 7 days.   You can even combine the deals with points that you earn for working out so you can get the best possible deal! Yep, that's right, offers points when you register for their site, connect a fitness app or device, and track your activity.  The points you earn can be redeemed for merchandise in stores and online at Sears and Kmart.  

Me before a run!

How the Points for Progress initiative works is that members can earn $5 in Shop Your Way points (5,000 points) by burning 1,500 calories. or walking or running 15 total miles in 2015.  That's where the #Achieve15 idea comes into play. gives #Achieve15 tips through social media during the month of January, including inspiration and ideas to reach your goals.   Below is a video the explains more about the #Achieve15 Program!

It's really not that hard to do, because almost all activity on earns you Shop Your Way points like connecting with through a fitness app or device and completing a profile.  Also, getting active such as walking or running even 2 miles per day can burn 200 calories!  And you can also earn points by sharing your fitness progress and content on social media.  See, it's not that hard at all!

Since my main goal is to just keep moving and exercise more I am already loving the challenges, programs, and workouts as well as the ability for me to set fitness goals via the goal center.  This helps me stay more accountable and track my fitness progress through my workout tracker and dashboard. The instructions for exercises I found on were explained so clearly that I'm no longer discouraged!  And connecting my fitness tracker was so simple and easy! It's already one of the main reasons I keep active so it's great to be able to combine it with!  I really love the product reviews since they are so detailed and it's helped me decide on some major purchases this year.   I was getting so exhausted with researching on the internet all day!

The best part about is that it simplifies my goals by having everything in one place.
