Happy New Year! It’s a new year and a fresh start across Apex. If the “evil” weight scale after all the holiday get-togethers is less than encouraging, don’t lose heart. It is common for people to gain a little weight over the holiday season. Between the parties and the traveling, fitness and eating routines can get broken. Don’t let it stay that way as we head to February! It is time to take charge of personal fitness and health with these tips for getting “lean and mean” again in 2016.
Our very popular personal trainers here at Fit for Life 24 in Apex NC offer four very simple ways to get the “groove” back in 2016:
- Eat a healthy diet: There is no quick-fix for lifelong health, so save the money and skip the latest juice cleanse! There are many helpful ways to track your diet too, and plenty of smartphone apps to help novices and experienced exercisers alike make healthy choices while grocery shopping. Indulge in the occasional splurge, but be mindful of what poor choices are doing to the body.
- Get moving: Can’t run a 5K yet? Don’t throw in the towel! Find a fitness routine that works and grow to the goal. Make it one that incorporates both strength and cardio training. Fit for Life 24 is the perfect place to find that just-right routine because of its variety of equipment, our personal trainers, and our array of classes. If a regular run on the treadmill works, great! If not, check out a cardio class. There is something for everyone at Fit for Life24 Apex!
- Try the buddy system: Find another motivated and reliable FFL 24 member to work out with a couple times a week. This is the perfect partnering to help keep up with accountability; especially if getting back into a solid fitness routine is difficult. Agree on a schedule that works for two, and stick to it! Feeling competitive? Challenge another two friends to compete against the two of you. Feeling the synergy and competition will be even more reason to lace up your sneakers.
- Create goals: Pace every routine. Make realistic goals and set a timeline to achieve them. Not sure where to start? Discuss personal goals with one of our experienced trainers! Keeping these goals in mind will not only help keep up the motivation; they will help to prevent any New Year’s plateauing in fitness routines. The key variable is results.
Make it a great New Year for maintaining a healthy lifestyle in 2016. Fit for Life 24 in Apex is here for every member and every fitness goal.
