Each year, millions of people set fitness resolutions...and by January 17th majority of them have already waved goodbye to them. That means (being that we’re in February now) many of you reading this article may find yourself in this situation: Your resolutions are long gone and old (unhealthy) habits have come back.
There is a way to keep your fitness resolutions
One of the main reasons resolutions can fail is because of the way we set them. Most resolutions start with “I’m going to stop doing…” Setting a resolution this way can often feel like you’re depriving yourself of something you want, deserve or even think that you need. For example, your resolution might be “I’m going to stop eating candy” or “stop watching so much TV”.
You can make it easier to accomplish your resolution by setting it in a way that grows and expands with you personally or professionally. And no, it’s not too late to set a nice, fresh resolution for 2019!
So if you started the year out trying to ‘stop’ doing something, let’s flip it around. Here are some ideas:
I’m going to start…taking an evening walk with my partner
I’m going to start...eating more cruciferous veggies
I’m going to start...adding 15 jumping jacks to my morning routine
Now, with your new resolution in mind and a commitment to yourself to improve your fitness and overall health this year, let’s talk about a support system.
Your fitness support system
Your support system should include people who are rooting for you to win. People who want to help you reach your goals. And few people will want this more for you than your dedicated, educated and experienced personal trainer.
If you’re struggling to keep up with your healthy habits or meet your goals, a personal trainer could be exactly what you need.
Many people use personal trainers as a way to keep themselves on track, learn how to do workouts properly, and have someone to check in with (accountability is key!).

Even though you may be open to the idea, we know that huge gyms with countless trainers and dozens of programs can be a little intimidating, especially if you’re new to working out.
