A New Year's resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to one or more lasting personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. So there is your definition of a New Year’s resolution. That being said…I don’t believe in them!!!!
Now don’t get me wrong, goals I believe in, but there is something about resolutions and fitness that don’t seem to work out the way we planned. I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 20 years and have never seen it fail...everyone is a work out warrior through January and February, but come March where has the warrior gone to? You’ve heard it a million times over, fitness is a life time commitment It’s true! It’s simple. You have to make the choice, goal what ever you call it...( just don’t call it a resolution) to be fit.
That includes eating a balanced diet and making exercise something you’d miss if you didn’t do. Changes don’t happen over night, but goals can be set and achieved realistically if you really want to do it. Make this year’s New Year’s resolution to not make anymore resolutions. Make fitness a way of LIFE!! If you are new to spinning or even exercising in general, here are a few tips that will help. The best way to get started on a new fitness regime is to “Just do it!” Yep, Nike coined the phrase, but it’s so true!
Break the seal. You have to take the first step by just showing up. Set realistic goals so you won’t be overwhelmed. I always tell new clients that they should be proud of themselves for simply walking into the studio.
Slow and Steady Wins the Race. Start easy so you won’t burn out! No need to go gangbusters when you are just starting out. Try to set a goal of moving your body at least 3 times a week.
Old Habits Die Hard, but New ones...
