New Year’s Resolutions
Almost all of us will fail to maintain our 2018 resolutions – at least, that’s what the statistics tell us. Roughly 80 percent of Americans will drop their New Year’s resolutions by February, and just less than 10 percent of Americans that set New Year’s resolutions will feel like they succeeded in achieving their goals. Exercising more is one of the most common goals people set for themselves each January. Given that regular exercise is essential to our continued health and well-being, why is it that so many people give up on their fitness resolutions so quickly?
Part of the problem is that people start with goals that are too large. If you’ve got a substantial amount of weight to lose, studies show that it’s better to set small, incremental goals for yourself instead of one large, singular goal. Setting small weight loss goals of five to 10 pounds, for instance, can be a fantastic way to keep your goal attainable and within your sights. Setting smaller goals also helps you to develop habits and lifestyle changes that will last beyond January.
The Value of Personal Fitness Training
One of the most effective ways to stick to your New Year’s fitness resolution is to invest in a personal fitness trainer. Studies have regularly shown that we’re more likely to stick with our commitments when we involve others, and a personal fitness trainer can be an incredibly valuable asset if you find yourself wanting to stay at home instead of going to the gym.
It can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to fitness training, and investing in a personal fitness trainer is an excellent way to protect yourself from injuries and overtraining. Investing in a personal fitness trainer can also help you conquer the fear of working out in front of others. Many people are too afraid to work out in public, and having a trainer as your advocate can alleviate the anxiety that often comes with joining a new fitness center.
