As the new year arrives (with it’s freezing temperatures…) I am always intrigued by the new people joining a gym for the first, second, or 100th time.    As a trainer I love it when new people join the gym and are trying to better themselves. The part that baffles me is that people don’t give themselves enough time to make a change in their lifestyle.   I recently read an article stating that 80% of the New Year’s Resolution people stop going to the gym by the second week in February….Seriously? Why?  You can’t get a bachelor’s degree in 6 weeks (if you can is it legit?), you can’t become a master at anything in 6 weeks. How do you expect to change your life and health in that short amount of time?  Whether you decide to work with a trainer, go to the gym on your own, or work out at home, all I ask of you is that you give it time. No matter what type of exercise or nutrition plan you decide to follow, follow it, for at least 6 months.  If you stay consistent you will have results, even if that program is not “optimal” you will notice a change.  Consistency is the key. Don’t quit, you can do it!
