While the holiday season is now in full swing, Meeting Planners must look ahead into the new year when coordinating activities that appeal to attendee resolutions. It is no surprise that most new year's resolutions revolve around personal wellness. Attendees want to be a healthier, fitter version of the individuals they were the previous year, particularly after packing on the inevitable holiday pounds. Executive Travel Directors compiled a few tips in planning personal wellness activities that will keep attendees engaged and feeling refreshed in 2014.

Offer morning fitness classes. Attendees can wake their minds and bodies before sessions by getting active at the start of the day. Water aerobics, spin, and yoga are all suitable group fitness activities to provide to attendees.

Get moving between meetings. Between sessions or speakers, attendees should be encouraged to move around. Teach a new yoga pose, do jumping jacks, or play musical chairs during program transitions and down time. Get creative when it comes to getting the blood pumping. Attendees will stay more alert, engaged, and interactive with one another.

Create some friendly competition. Sports are an effective way to promote team building. Organize a tennis, dodge-ball or kickball tournament for attendees. Not only will this encourage physical fitness, a friendly sporting event will bring attendees together as a bonding activity.
