The New Year brings new goals: a time to focus on the things that you have been neglecting or want change.
Personal health tops many lists, especially after the Holiday Season.
Trying to improve yourself is fantastic. Make sure to set both short term and long term goals, and make sure they’re attainable. For example, losing 2 – 3 pounds a week (depending on your starting weight) is a great goal and these numbers show a healthy weight loss.
Also, make it easy on yourself to attain these goals and turn them into a healthy Lifestyle. Working out in a group setting can be fun, can push you harder than you would have pushed yourself alone and it brings a social aspect to what many people think of as “work”.
In my group classes, I introduce new Fitness Toys occasionally and you can see both the Ab Wheel and Battle Ropes in the pictures above. It keeps workouts fresh and fun, which makes people want to keep working hard towards their goals.
And lastly, you can start/continue a training program at any time. The girl doing Medicine-ball Squats in the back has continued to workout even though she’s 5 months pregnant!!! Its great for her, its great for her baby and she has decided to make Health a Lifestyle.
So get your butt out there, set some goals and make 2014 the year that you change Health from something you think about occasionally to a Lifestyle.
In order to achieve something you’ve never done before, you must be willing to become somebody you’ve never been before
