Tackle Your New Year's Resolutions With The Deco Apartments

Most of us add new fitness goals to our resolution lists to improve our health and overall well-being. While these tasks seem feasible at first, statistics show that many of us quickly fail to meet our expectations. Nevertheless, apartment living can prove to be helpful in successfully implementing your new workout journey.

Here we suggest some tips to help you stick to your new health goals:

Plan Your Gym Session

Pick a time that works for you so that there is no reason to miss out on your gym session. If that is not enough to get you out, choose a friend to come with you. Feel free to invite just about anyone. Most apartments in Reno and Sparks allow you to have guests come and enjoy all amenities as long as you are with them.

Talk About Your Goals With Others

Take the time to talk to other people about your goals. Talking to others will help encourage you to complete your fitness resolutions since you may feel more accountable. You can even ask your friends to go the extra mile by checking in to see how your milestones are going.  

Reward Small Gains

There is no reason to become discouraged if you fail to keep up with your new fitness goals. It is important to remember that small steps are steps forward. This mentality will help keep you motivated. Whether you have one bad day, week, or month, there is no reason to give up on your fitness resolution. Reward yourself with new gym clothes, a healthy treat or other goodies to encourage your attempts at growth. 

The Deco Apartments in Sparks offers outdoor facilities for your next BBQ celebration. Feel free to join your neighbors in the Clubroom for some entertainment. Here you can rent out the space for private events to celebrate some of your accomplishments for the New Year.

The massive made-up man was created by Roscoe E. “Duke” Reading in 1952 specifically for the Last Chance Cafe. The cartoon character was eventually transformed into a gold miner and was used in ads for the Nugget Casino. Later, Joe’s character was erected as a giant statue and put outside of the Casino which has now been turned into the Sparks Museum. 

Experience The Generator 

The Generator is a massive 34,000 square foot communal art space designated for the community of artists, builders, and more to come and create their masterpieces. The studio, which is located inside of a large warehouse, was created by Matt Schultz, an artist and serious Burning Man devotee. The Generator functions similarly to how Burning Man runs - as in your money is no good there. Instead, tools, materials, and skills are to be shared free of charge. 

Here, artists, carpenters, builders, engineers, designers, and creators of all types come to create whatever they wish together at The Generator. These very large, very unique pieces are then held in the facility for guests to admire. 

Try Your Hand at Rock Climbing 

While rock climbing the side of an actual mountain may be too intimidating to try, Reno has the perfect solution for you. Basecamp at the Whitney Peak Hotel has the world's tallest artificial rock-climbing wall which the Guinness Book of World Records can prove. The wall stretches 164 feet high providing the ultimate view of the famous Reno Arch below. If you want a truly breathtaking view, try the wall at night when the sun is setting and the casino lights are illuminating your path. Beginners are welcome and if you’re an experienced climber, check out the 15-meter certified speed wall and indoor harness-free bouldering on large artificial rocks.
