Is your New Year resolution to Get Fit
Are you worried about what is going to happen to your ‘get fit’ New Year resolution, sometime around mid-January?
You’re in good company! “Get Fit” is one of the most popular New Year resolutions in America, according to the usa.gov website.
Also popular health and fitness resolutions are “loose weight”, “reduce stress” and “eat healthy”. They all have something in common; We all start out at the beginning of the year with the best intentions. And then, for some reason, most of us fall off the wagon…
Well, I for one do not believe it’s “for some reason”. The reasons are pretty typical.
We get bored.
It’s difficult to find the time.
That first work-out after years on the sofa? It hurts. And not just physically!
Besides, lasting change is tough to implement.
It’s boring to go to the gym alone.
So why do we insist on joining one of the big box gyms and go at it on our own? Because it’s cheap? That is not a recipe for success! (Is it really cheap? – see my “8 reasons cheap gyms suck” post).
Almost everybody who lose weight and maintain the weight loss share one thing:
They have social support!
Get fit with social support
Social support is the primary reason people succeed at getting fit, eating healthy or any other habit change. Social support means having somebody you feel accountable to. Maybe it’s your spouse? Maybe it’s your children?
Or, maybe it’s a group of like-minded (future) friends, sharing your desire to make a life change. The life change doesn’t have to be to get fit, lose weight, eat healthy or manage stress, but if it is?
Regular exercise is one of the key ingredients. Exercising together with other like-minded people, being inspired by them to push yourself. Basically, getting results is more likely to occur if you have social support from friends, family (and trainers).
Value of a personal trainer, a semi-private or group training environment?

We support you and constantly make changes to the exercise routine. That way, it doesn’t become “routine” and wind up boring you to tears.
