Are you going to start back at the gym on Jan 2nd or wait till Monday?

Either way, PLEASE, DO NOT do a marathon workout!
Take it slow, make a plan. It’s a New YEAR’S resolution, not a New Year’s Day resolution. Take your time, do it right. The first day back you might want to just start by stretching and determining what imbalances you might have developed since your last visit to the gym (it doesn’t take long). It all depends on too many variables to generalize. But, if you are just starting up again, PLEASE, talk to a professional.

Is “getting in shape” one of your resolutions for 2015?

Has it been a while since you last worked out? Do you have a plan?
If you plan to “take it slow” at the beginning to avoid injury be sure to target the right muscles the right way and fight imbalances in development.  Talk to a trainer to get a better idea. We still have some promotions going and would love to help you meet your goals!

Give the gift of fitness!

Don’t be shy about encouraging someone close to you to start working out.  Some people just need a little support from a friend or relative to get started.  If you purchase 2 or more sessions to give as a gift you will earn a free session for yourself.  And, if you want to workout together you can take advantage of this deal and the first session together will only cost as much as a single-person session.

Start before the New Year! Take advantage of holiday prices.

Lots of people set New Year resolutions to “get in better shape,” or similar.  Unfortunately, lots of those lots of people jump into a training plan that is not right for them.  Many people who were in great shape just a few years ago try to go back to their old program- usually “playing it safe” using lower weights, but this might not be the best approach (almost always is not).  The body changes over time and some new exercises may be better suited to help meet goals.

We are more than happy to do an assessment for you and help develop a plan with you to reach your goals more efficiently.

Getting started in fitness by buying new fitness equipment?

Sometimes buying something new is the best way to get started on a new endeavor- but not buying blindly.  (I admit that I tried to “buy” my golf game at a store, but it didn’t work).  I really hope people use all their new holiday-savings-purchased fitness equipment correctly.  Not only can a person seriously injure themselves but they can also waste time and money and not get the results they are looking for with the new “stuff” they bought.

Before buying anything I suggest consulting a professional.  First talk to a doctor or primary care manager to determine any possible exercise limitations, then talk to a qualified trainer.  A trainer will save lots of time in developing the right plan for anyone, especially new-comers to fitness.  Don’t be shy about calling a trainer.  Many of us do free first appointments and we want to help you learn to train safely.

For most beginners I often suggest just a few simple items to start.  1. A soft surface (a workout mat, “Yoga” or “Pilates” are popular) or just fold a towel to create a soft surface in your living room.  2. A good pair of shoes and socks – these completely depend on the workout plan but running stores often have treadmills and fitting experts to help (but some people like to go barefoot in the living room).  3. The right water bottle (or reservoir).  I prefer the simple standard squeeze bottle but there are all kinds of fancy bottles with clips and caps and no-spill-flip tops that might be better for different training styles. After those three things my recommendations start to get specific based on goals and fitness level.  I often recommend power bands for home training, maybe an exercise ball, maybe dumbells- it all depends on goals.  My point is that very few “items” are needed to start working out. Spending time researching what to do and how to do it is a far better first step than making a large purchase.

If you want to buy more than that you probably either know exactly what you want and know how to use it or you should talk to a trainer before you buy something that might not do anything for you.
