The Holidays Are Coming

The Holidays Are Coming

The holidays are coming and not only can they take a toll on your energy level, they also are a time when people want to look their best. Unfortunately, most people wait until the last minute to start a workout program. While starting at any time is good, you won’t get the results you want if you have only a few weeks to achieve them.

Holidays are busy times too.

One of the biggest problems with starting a program close to holiday time, besides time to achieve your goals, is that your schedule often bulges with new demands. Whether it’s Christmas shopping, planning family activities, the office party or other holiday activities, it can create challenges finding time to exercise. You’ll also be changing your eating habits and learning to cook healthier. That can take some time too.

Two to three months can help you get into fantastic shape to celebrate the New Year.

If you want to start the new year right, start working out now. Don’t wait and make it your New Year’s resolution. By starting now, you can look fabulous and wear clothing for the holidays that accent your new figure. You’ll have more energy for all the demands of the holiday season too. You’ll be starting the next year healthier and fitter, with plenty of energy to dance the night away until the clock strikes 12:00.

Surprise your family and friends with your new look.

Some people love the idea of keeping their fitness program under wraps and then wearing more form fitting clothes on the holidays. It’s so much fun to see people look in astonishment at the new you. Often you’ll be seeing relatives you haven’t seen since the last holiday, who won’t believe the change you made. You’ll also have plenty of knowledge of how to eat healthier so you can eat all you want at the celebration without worrying about gaining weight.

No matter when you start your workout program, you’ll notice other changes besides weight loss. You’ll look years younger because regular exercise helps all parts of your body, including your skin.

Exercise increases circulation sending oxygen and nutrient rich blood to all areas of your body and stimulates the production of antioxidants. You’ll be healthier than ever.

Exercise can help back problems and reduce pain. If you have a serious condition, our Wellness Center can help you be pain free by the holidays.

You’ll be ready to sit down at the holiday table and know exactly the right types of foods to choose. You’ll even learn to make your favorite dishes healthier and lower in calories.

When you start now, you’ll be fabulous for the holidays.

Everyone wants to look their best at the holidays, but unfortunately they wait until a few weeks before to start exercising and eating healthier.

You won’t have to starve on that day of celebration where food is so important. That’s because you won’t be dieting, just eating healthier and there’s even room in that prescription for some pumpkin pie.

Looking fabulous is important, but feeling fantastic is even more important.

Working out is about more than just looking good. It’s about being healthy and feeling good. When you eat healthy and workout on a regular basis, you’ll not only tone up and slim down, you’ll be bursting with energy and good health. Studies show that regular exercise can help prevent serious conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and osteoporosis. It can also help control them if you already have them. Regular exercise also helps build your immune system to keep minor illnesses at bay, like colds and flu.

You’ll be able to spend time with the family enjoying everything this area has to offer.

You’ll even be able to wear a sexy Halloween costume! It’s all fun when you feel good and look great.

Regular exercise can help you think clearer, helping to develop new neural pathways in your brain. If you’re learning anything new or are back in school yourself, that can be a huge benefit.

There’s still time for surfing. You’ll be fitter and ready to give it your all.
