2013: The best and worst time to start working out

The final two weeks of the year is staring us right in the face.  Looking back you can see people places and things that touched your heart and flashes of memories that you want to vanish forever.  I myself have been blessed in 2012 and can’t wait to run through 2013.

The new year brings one of my favorite times for business, the “resolution”

resolution

1. the act or an instance of resolving
2. the condition or quality of being resolute; firmness or determination
3. something resolved or determined; decision
4. a formal expression of opinion by a meeting, esp one agreed by a vote
5. (Law) a judicial decision on some matter; verdict; judgment
6. the act or process of separating something into its constituent parts or elements

There’s the dictionary definition, take your pick.   When people hear the word they typically think of losing weight.

I think that’s fabulous.

I have worked at the big gyms, owned my own business and have been a personal trainer going on 12yrs, although I see and learn new things all the time, some things never do change, like people starting off the new year wanting to get in shape.

This by far is the best and worst time to start working out.

It’s best because people are motivated, ready and helped along by encouragement of family, peers, and co-workers, and without some support its hard to  be successful.

On the other-hand, it’s the worst time to workout, it’s crowded, time-consuming, and almost embarrassing for some because of how they have let their self go.

Bigger gyms won’t help

$15/24hr  gym won’t help

Diet pills wont help

Starving yourself won’t help

Working out 2 hrs a day wont help

The only thing that helps is YOU – you have to want to make a change and accept the responsibilities  that come with that change.

The best help is self-help – you are the motivation, the resolution, you are the reason  I have purpose and self fulfillment in my own life – thank you

Know Your Body Type: Measure and Re-Measure

Holiday season is here and people’s focus will shift back to how overweight they are what they’re going to do about it.  When you go to the office parties and family dinners you will see and hear everyone’s excuse for their poor physical health.

If you are currently working out alone then now is the time you want to have your body measured.  Take the time to measure hips, thighs, abs, chest and arms and if you can have a Fit Coach assess your body fat composition.  Knowing what body type you have (endomorph, ectmorph, mesomorph) and how your body fat and muscle mass is distributed is the key to formulating a workout routine that will yield RESULTS

Measuring is the time when you can critique how your training program is fairing.  You don’t know where you are going if you don’t know where you been.  You have to obtain measuring points so you can compare.  Comparisons will help you determine the course of action for the next 4-6wks.  Adjustments will have to be made to nutrition intake and workout regime in order for the body to respond and adapt the positive changes you working towards.

If you have never measured or want to be re-measured schedule a time with me Monday – Friday a.m. or p.m.

Get measured – Get results

When you go to your Christmas party, they will have lots of questions for you!!

Ears: for Listening, not Hearing

Nearing the end of the month, Fall Break is coming up and the season will slow down through Christmas and into February.  WE have been kicking but and lost over a ton of weight this year (next year I will track total lbs)

I am looking for feedback, suggestions, COMPLAINTS, or any advice that I could use to take my training and business to the next level and be more accommodating and resourceful to you and your family.

If you have anything please let me know, without your input I have no purpose or challenges.  If you speak, I will listen.

Thanks
