With the New Year upon us, many people will resolve to transform their fitness in the months ahead. To get extraordinary results, you need to do ordinary things daily. So, don’t declare you’re going to wake up on New Year’s Day and run a 10K race even though you haven’t hit the pavement since high school. Rather, take the time to develop a plan that will gradually move you toward your final goal. The guidelines below will help you turn your fitness dreams into this year’s realities!
Above all else, remain positive! Celebrate your achievements (big or small), and be willing to forgive yourself if you slip up. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself exactly where you wanted to be!

The festive season is upon us which may mean diet debauchery and abandoned fitness regimes. Many people fall off the exercise and healthy eating bandwagon during the holidays or rule out the idea of getting into shape during the month of December, assuming there is no point in starting until the New Year; however, it doesn’t have to be this way! With a little forward planning and some self-discipline, it is possible to enjoy a healthy Christmas and enter in to the New Year feeling fit.
Here are a few quick tips to help you out:
Most importantly, enjoy yourself! Try not to stress too much about putting on a few extra pounds during the holidays. Spending time with your loved ones is the priority, and the studio will be ready for you in the New Year!
