Setting New Year Fitness Goals

It's a new year once again! It's a great time to make a fresh start. So if you have been neglecting exercise now is the perfect time to implement your fitness resolutions.

When setting a fitness goal, it is important to set realistic expectations and a reasonable time frame. Despite the fact that many consider mileage and time splits as a measure of fitness, it is more effective for beginners to ease into exercise to avoid injury and pain. These types of exercises may include indoor cycling, zumba, Pilates and yoga. Increase your activity gradually, in increments of 10% more at a time. This means you have to acknowledge your body limitations as well. Remember that you will not always gain from pain. Often it can be better and more productive to seek the help of a personal trainer to guide you in your fitness journey and lessen the risk of injury.

There can be a lot of factors that can affect your fitness success. But don't let exercise or the gym intimidate you. Understanding that there is a learning curve, choosing a personal trainer, and setting realistic and attainable fitness goals will help you stick to your New Year's Resolutions.

Weight Loss Resolutions

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 28, 2018

It's the New Year, when you start writing down your resolutions usually weight loss is the most popular. Just because of the "time of year" it is hard to keep resolutions, however, if this is the plan, then it is best to set yourself up for success. Actually, 45% of Americans set New Year's resolutions, and 38% are weight loss related, however only 8% achieve them. This is because there's no strategy behind these types of resolutions.

Here is what not to do:

  • don’t go on a fad diet,
  • don't set unrealistic fitness goals,
  • don't get frustrated, and
  • don't give up.

Set and commit to your weight loss goals. Here is how:

Be specific. You can’t just decide to go to the gym. Instead, choose a personal trainer and make a plan to work out a certain number of times per week. Alternate between weight training and cardio a set number of times per week as well. The more specific your goals the better you can stick with them.

Know why. Knowing why you want to lose weight is important. ‘I want to look great’ does not count. Do you want to be more confident, more comfortable, healthier, live longer…

Set small goals. You can’t be general with your weight loss goals. Don’t start with a goal of losing 25 pounds. Start small, lose 1 pound per week or 5 pounds a month. Or, set a goal to run one mile by the end of the month.

Have a partner. If you exercise with someone who can motivate you your goals will come easier and faster. A personal trainer is a perfect choice.

Tips to Beat Holiday Weight Gain

It's that time of the year again when our eating habits are less than stellar due to the holiday feasts and parties. On top of that, add in the hectic schedules, stress, and often less sleep and our metabolism gets out of whack too. When stress and overeating collide, most people can expect the impending weight gain to follow. If you are determined to protect your health and maintain your weight, here are some tips:

  • Plan it Out - Research indicates that what actually drives us to overeat is emotion. Although the holidays mean celebration and joy, there are other emotions that can also surface as a result of crazy holiday schedules and year end work deadlines. Instead of avoiding the buffet table, plan out your buffet attack. Set parameters and don't deprive yourself, just be smart and try to eat more of the healthy food picks too.
  • Say "No" to Food Pushers - Whether it's your mom, your aunt, or your friend, simply say no when they offer more. Be consistent and firm and politely decline.
  • Don't skip your fitness routine - It is more important than ever to maintain your workout routine when you are eating more indulgently. This will help you burn the extra calories from holiday indulging and it will also ease the stress that builds up during the holiday rush.
