Congratulations on finishing up the first month of 2015! You succeeded in doing it with a bang. It has been great to see so many new faces in the gym and old ones returning. We love the energy in the gym this time of year. Our resolution for 2015 is to keep it going all year long!
The Wellness Festival in January was a great time to recharge and remind us all why we work so hard to stay healthy and active. My new personal favorite motto is:
“I practice indoor training for the outside world”
This was a quote from Tony Horton when he was in town for the festival. There were a few things that he talked about in his Friday night keynote speech that really hit home and are worth a share if you didn’t get a chance to go.
Do your best and forget the rest: Work hard in the gym, trust the program you have chosen and don’t worry about the chatter around you from friends, social media, or the rest of the outside world.
If it isn’t going to help you get to your goals, it is potentially a waste of valuable time.
Have a plan:
We all live really busy lives, so planning your workouts throughout the week is a huge help in committing to your goals. Not only should you schedule it, but make sure you know what you are doing when you get to the gym so you don’t waste time making a plan at the last minute. If you aren’t sure what you should be doing, schedule some time with one of our 4 trainers or attend a few PURENERGY classes. These are great ways to get new ideas and add some motivation to your current workouts.
Consistency reigns supreme:
You don’t have to be crazy, just consistent. Extreme workouts look cool, but if you can’t recover from them properly you are missing out on the most valuable exercise tool: consistency. If you can get regular workouts you will see better results. So focus on staying healthy, well rested and be prepared for the long haul. Your body will be stronger, better and happier on a moderate program that you can live with every day.
We are starting a 14 Day Challenge on Sunday February 8th!!!
Place your name on the grid on the white board and commit to 14 days of healthy activity. Gym workouts, outside fun, yoga and stretching is all acceptable. The goal is only to make sure you get some sort of activity every day for 14 days. This is a great way to hold yourself accountable and continue those resolutions so they create consistent habits.
Keep up the great work and STAY ACTIVE!
