New Year’s Resolution Help

It’s Good to Ask for Help with New Year’s Resolutions

After a whole year of thinking I knew what I was doing, I stepped on the weight scale and realized how wrong I was. Curiously, I wasn’t alone in this respect. Often, I come across others who feel they know what they are doing at the gym. But as the year gets near the end, one can’t refute the truth that very little has changed in the reflection we see in the mirror.

In all seriousness, there are advantages in doing it yourself. It appears to suffice that a simple gym membership should be enough. With basic access, one is free to do what they wish with all the machines at their disposal. But again, sometimes the results we desire don’t match what we see in the mirror at year’s end.

Another option has been to invest in equipment at home. Sure, this is appealing. Working out in the privacy of your own home can be liberating in the sense that we can do what we want at the rate that we want without having to worry about being in someone’s way or waiting for someone to finish using the machine at the gym. However, the truth can still be the same. Very little physical change may have happened during a year’s time working out solo at home.

Perhaps it’s time to explore another option where it’s ok to ask and receive help from someone else. Personal training is a realistic and promising route when it comes to achieving fitness results that you can see within a certain time. Astoria Personal trainers have the value of bringing their expertise to aid in your fitness goals. A professional trainer is sure to know what kind of routine to tailor to your needs and schedule depending on your lifestyle.

With assistance from a Queens personal trainer, you’ll know what workouts to do on the right days, what machines to do, how often to do them, and when to take rest times. As the year is nearing its final days, be sure to consider professionals in the area who are ready to help fulfill your fitness goals. It can be done alone but, it’s also good to ask for help.

Stick to New Year’s Resolution

4 Ways to Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution

Every year at this time, millions of Americans are making their New Year’s resolutions. Over half of those resolutions include improving physical fitness and health. But after February, half of those people will have given up on their resolutions. Don’t become one of the quitters. Follow these tips to stay motivated and finally achieve your fitness goals.

  1. Set Realistic Goals

If you’re a couch potato, don’t say you want to run a marathon by the end of the year. While this is achievable, it’s not realistic. Set short term goals. Start with a 5K, and say you want to run it by March. A year is a long time and it’s easy to put things off when you think you have forever to do it. Give yourself goals that have to be done quickly.

  1. Find a Partner in Crime

Drag a friend with you to the gym. If you don’t have a friend, get a Queens personal trainer. In fact, do both. Personal trainers are going to be there for you no matter. They won’t wimp out and drop off after a few weeks of training. A trainer will hold you accountable for your workouts and goals. Pre-paying for Queens personal training sessions will give you more skin in the game, and you’ll be less likely to forget about heading to the gym. You’ll make the time.

  1. Take it Easy

With the hype of the holiday season, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the excitement of getting fit. Listen to your body and realize that this is going to take time. You aren’t going to get ripped in two months. It’s a lifetime commitment to be a happier and healthier you. Slow down the pace a little and enjoy the ride.

  1. Keep Smiling

Ever wondered why runners are always smiling? It’s because they love what they’re doing. Work with your trainer to find an exercise routine that you love. If it’s something you hate, you’re not going to stick with it. There are all kinds of ways of being active that are fun. You’ve got to put in the work to find that perfect one for you.
