New Year Goals

At the stroke of midnight, everyone makes New Year goals, but few people carry them out. It’s time for you to be part of the few that do change their life for the better. It’s time to make some lifestyle changes that will keep you fit and healthy for the rest of your life. Lifestyle changes include everything from becoming more active and exercising regularly to quitting smoking. They also include learning to eat healthier and make smarter choices when it comes to food. Most people start with a program of regular exercise and healthier eating to prepare themselves to achieve more difficult goals, like smoking cessation.

I will help you on your quest for a healthier you.

Losing weight is often a key goal most people have. You’ll be amazed that when you combine a healthy diet with regular exercise just quickly you’ll shed weight. However, before we start any program, I have to know where you’re starting, what you want to achieve and the path to take along the way. I assess your overall fitness, including identifying all types of fitness levels, such as flexibility, strength and endurance, while also locating weaker muscle groups. Only then do I create a program that will help you reach your goals.

Nobody said getting fit will be easy.

You’ll work hard, there’s no doubt about that, but in return you’ll see results faster. There will be times you want to quit, but I’ll be there to encourage and before you know it, you’ll see the results of your labors, so you won’t need my encouragement any more. As your level of fitness improves, I’ll adjust your program to reflect that improvement so you’ll always be working your hardest.

Eating healthy isn’t dieting.

Dieting simply doesn’t work. By it’s very nature, it always ends and then you go back to the same eating habits that put on weight in the first place. Eating healthy means making smarter choices to reduce caloric intake and increase nutritional levels. It may be as simple as making food substitutions, such as yogurt dips with fresh veggies rather than sour cream ones with chips. It might mean changing the way you cook or what you order at a fast food place. People often eat the same foods out of habit, not necessarily because they love them. If you do have foods you love, you can still eat it, but in smaller, less frequent amounts.

You’ll burn off the hormones of stress when you workout. That’s a huge side benefit. It can keep you healthier, make you feel better and clear your head in the process.

You’ll sleep sounder at night when you workout. A good night’s sleep is good for both the heart and your weight. It helps keep you from grabbing sugary treats for snacks.

You’ll feel fantastic. Not only will you feel healthier, burn stress hormones, but exercise also stimulates the brain to create hormones that make you feel good.

You’ll have the strength and confidence to make other lifestyle changes. Several studies found that exercise and a healthy diet can even help people conquer addiction.
