You know the drill. January comes along and it’s time to set some healthy fitness goals for yourself for the next 365 days. Maybe 2014 was a good year for you, but chances are that there were certain things you set out to do which never materialized.So what’s wrong?
Happy New Year! It's time to reflect on the past year, and think ahead to our goals and aspirations for a wonderful new year. Want to be successful in achieving your goals? Whether you want to lose weight, add muscle and definition, run that race, or eat healthier--you need to have goals and a plan. You need SMART goals. SMART goal setting is an effective method to help you define and achieve your goals step by step.
New Year, new members. We've seen the trends where a new member shows up right around new year with the intention of becoming fit/healthy, only to quit a few days or weeks later. We've seen how busy the gym gets when there is an influx of new members. Most of the regulars at the gym are happy when these people leave so that things can return to normal for them. For most people who works out regularly, the frustration is in the lack of available equipments as well as seeing the uneducated masses trying to figure out what to do.
Are resolutions good or are they bad? Is it good to set yourself up for failure? Do people really stick to resolutions at all? Here's what I think...I think we should never stop trying! Never, never never! I don't care how many times you fall flat on your face, just get right back up and do it again!
A couple years ago I wrote a status on Facebook that went a little something like this:New Year's Resolutions are a joke. You shouldn't need a new year to bring upon a better life for yourself or a better you in general. You should be living to the best of your ability each and every day. Whether it's being kinder, healthier, or more spontaneous, you should be doing these things at every moment. Be the best person you can be. Love what you do. A new year is not a new beginning. Be thankful for who you are and what you do and strive to be better at all times.
Day 10 and you have set a “realistic” goal. You are retraining your mind to think positively. You are working hard to organize your life and taking “action” towards establishing new and healthy habits. Now you need to “discipline” yourself to stay the course.
Here we are again at the beginning of a New Year. What will you do to make this year count? I challenge you to join us at Personal Best “whole life warehouse” and commit to a holistic approach towards your health and wellness.
