Personal trainers at Fitness Together, the world’s largest personal training organization, know how difficult it is to stick to a plan especially when that plan comes in the form of a New Year’s resolution.
That is why the private one-on-one training sessions offered at Fitness Together training studios are so effective the personal relationship between the client and trainer is a powerful motivator.
Fitness Together’s trainers develop individually customized, results-oriented programs to help clients achieve their goals through weight and resistance training, muscular endurance, muscular training and nutrition counseling. Trainers also guide clients in weight loss management.
Our trainers hold each of their clients accountable - to themselves. Each client is required to keep daily journals to track their fitness and nutrition goals. Thousands of people across the country have seen incredible results as a result of our trainers maximum focus on each client, said Kevin Betts, Vice President for Fitness Together.
Mr. Betts shares the following tips to stay on track with your New Year’s resolutions:
Surround yourself with a support group who knows what you are trying to accomplish. That group will encourage you to do and be -- your best. Schedule your workouts into your day just like you would a meeting. If a workout is already part of your schedule, you will be more likely to keep the appointment.
Instead of setting one large goal, set up smaller goals that are both realistic and attainable. Small accomplishments along the way will feel significant and give you more confidence to go after the next one. Post your goals where you can see them every day. Too often people write their goals down, tuck them away and never look at them again. Put them on the fridge, in your office or your car. They will be gentle reminders to take steps toward accomplishing them. After each workout, write down how you feel, what you did for weight training, how much cardio you did and what you ate. Writing it down helps you stick to the plan. Keeping a journal will help you feel accountable.
Find a workout buddy (co-worker, spouse, child, etc.) so that you are both holding each other accountable. A workout buddy will continually encourage you. You can also hire a personal trainer who understands the difficulties in sticking to a plan and can help you keep motivated and performing at your absolute best. ? Ask friends and family for workout clothes, shoes or accessories as gifts for special occasions, like a birthday or other celebratory holiday. You will feel a sense of obligation to use these items. You can then let those friends know how their gift helped you reach your fitness goals or maintain your resolutions. ? Share your resolutions with others - friends, family, co-workers, etc. It?s a great first step to making your goals a reality. And remember to celebrate your successes by sharing your accomplishments with this same group of people.
