Don’t Wish For It – Work For It

Do you wish you had a great body, had all the energy you wanted and enjoyed the endurance you had when you were young. You can achieve that, but you have to work for it. It takes more than just making a New Year’s resolution, you have to follow through with action. You can choose to make one change at a time or try to change everything at once. Each person is different, to you have to do what’s best for you.

Sometimes, people seem to be born lucky.

We’ve all met those people who can eat all they want without gaining a pound or stay fit and muscular, even though they seem to live a sedentary lifestyle. Looks can deceive. Sure, there are people born lucky, with a higher metabolism that keeps weight off or good genes to keep them more youthful. Most of the time, those people are far more active than you’d ever expect and normally skip foods with added sugar, highly processed foods and junk food. Each person is different, so having a personalized plan can make a difference in achieving your dreams.

You have to take the first step to get results.

There are few things in life that you achieve that didn’t require hundreds of small steps. The most important of those small steps is the first one. No matter how much you wish and hope, if it’s not backed by action, it’s a pipe dream. Right now….do something…anything. Do a few lunges, jumping jacks, squats or go for a walk. Just move. It’s the first step toward fitness. Do you need help? Give us a call. We’ll create a program designed specifically for you.

Good health and a great body starts in the kitchen.

You can’t out-exercise a bad diet, which is why eating healthy is so important. It’s not dieting. Dieting doesn’t work. It’s all about learning to make smarter choices when you’re choosing food. It can mean making small changes, like using Greek yogurt to replace sour cream for potatoes or eating a piece of fruit for a snack instead of junk food. It can mean making bigger changes like cutting out food with added sugar or eating more vegetables and eliminating highly processed food. With every bite, you’ll be changing your life.

  • Start today by taking charge of your life. Whether you choose to start by changing your diet, exercising more or both, it makes a difference. Stick with your decision. If you aren’t sure where to start, we can help.
  • Remember, you’ll rust out before you wear out. The more you move, the healthier you’ll become. Don’t push yourself too hard at first if you’ve lived a sedentary life. Take it easy and learn the right form for each exercise.
  • All exercise doesn’t have to take place in the gym. Do something fun that’s active. Go out dancing, take the kids to the zoo or have active family time bicycling or hula hooping. Being fit can be fun and create memories for the family.
  • Learning healthy habits, such as eating nutritious food, exercising, getting more sleep and staying hydrated last a lifetime. They are habits that take time to develop, but are well worth it for the benefits you receive.
