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”


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

PMS – my physical, mental & social philosophy

I just met two new clients today, a mother and daughter, after our hour and half consultation/workout it got me thinking about my philosophy of life or PMS

P- physical

M- mental

S- social

PMS is the balance of life and well-being.  When people come to our studio to be trained by personal trainers they typically have an imbalance of PMS and are unhealthy in some way.  One or all of these aspects of health is out of whack and needs attention.

That’s what we do.

Our personal training studio addresses all three of these components and helps each person on an individual level.  We attack the physical and social realms because we maintain a “results oriented environment” guaranteed.  People train with us to get results, this is not a gym, this is a process.  WE workout together among friends and family to achieve better health and in-return we leave with a mental clarity that carries us onward.

You can be out of tune with life if you’re not focused on yourself, how can you help others if you can’t help yourself?
