It’s that time of year when so many of us say were going to do it, then it seems like just a few actually follow through. The New Year's resolution of working out, and getting fit for the upcoming year.
It seems like we all do it, say were going to get fit and workout, and a few months later, it's back to the same old routine, one that doesn't include a workout plan. That’s why this year; those who do want to get healthy can actually do so with the help of a realistic goal.
Many workout facilities including the Weston YMCA are offering special deals to kick-off the New Year. The YMCA is offering a special 12 Days of Fitness Deal, one they hope will get people off the couch and into the gym.
YMCA Health and Wellness Director, Shannon Wagman says the YMCA is doing it’s part to help those who want to get healthy. "It’s called 12 days of fitness. You come in on Jan.1st where we have an open house from 8-12. We are waiving the joiners fee from Jan.1st through the 12th of January. If you come in on Jan.1st you sign up for $1 a day and so on through the 12th." That deal will be good through the entire month of January, allowing gym users a much most cost efficient way to keep themselves healthy.
Wagman says that one of the biggest mistakes people make is being overly ambitious. Keeping attainable goals will also keep people coming back, seeing gradual results throughout their time at the gym.
One thing trainers at the YMCA say they see all too often is the 6 week bubble. That is people working out until around mid-February, then giving up. That is one thing people wanting to get fit should always avoid
If you are unsure about specific workout plans, or ways to get yourself healthy, the YMCA offers consulting and help for members.
