Check out these tips from Tu Sei Bella Personal Trainer, Sara Powlus. She has some great tips on how to maintain fitness goals for the New Year!
1. I always fail my New Years Resolutions. What can I do differently this year to make sure I am successful?
Plan your work and work your plan! We all have lofty goals for healthy living, losing weight, and getting stronger, however there is no reason to go it alone. Group fitness classes and/or personal training sessions will help stick to the plan, keeping your resolution intact for the new year!
2. Should I have a personal trainer or do regular group classes? Wouldn't I get the same results in both?
Group fitness classes can provide the peer motivation needed to follow through on your goals and some people like the idea of working out with a group. However, others prefer a more personalized structure to their workout. Working with a personal trainer ensures that your workout will cater to your needs and your goals, with specific attention placed on your ability level.
3. Should I join a challenge group? Will that keep me accountable?
Accountability is a major challenge for anyone who is trying to change their lifestyle to become more healthy. A challenge group can be a good way to stick to your plan since peer accountability is a powerful tool. However, this can create a negative motivation situation since your motivation is peer based instead of health and personal based. Conversely, working with a personal trainer will guarantee that the focus remains on you, your workout, and your healthy living.
