3 Reasons to Start the New Year Right with a Personal Fitness Program

3 Reasons to Start the New Year Right with a Personal Fitness Program

Joan Schnorf

Making a New Year’s resolution to join a personal fitness program is easy.

Making it to the gym? That’s another story.

That’s why more than 70 percent of all New Year’s resolutions regarding weight loss are abandoned within weeks of January 1, if they even commence in the first place.

But what if you had, say, super powers? The power to resist procrastination, to soar into positive action, and to leap up, up, and away from those doughnuts.

Not a fan of tights? What about enhanced abilities, then, a la the Six-Million Dollar Man? It might not be bionics, but the right personal fitness program can literally rebuild you from head to toe.

Here are three reasons to get started on a new you in the New Year:

  • Faster, smarter – Exercise triggers the release of neurotransmitters such as endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine, which act as the body’s natural painkillers and mood-enhancers. This eliminates fatigue and gives your emotions an overhaul, allowing you to return to the things you love doing, from playing with the kids to shopping to yard work, and beyond. Exercise also fosters better sleep, reduces stress, and stimulates chemicals in the brain that improve memory and focus, ultimately allowing you to think faster on your feet.
  • Stronger – Both strength training and cardiovascular workouts have been proven to have myriad healing properties. Together, they reduce the risk of diabetes, various cancers, and heart disease, while boosting metabolism, lowering blood pressure, and increasing one’s strength, stamina, and physical capability.
  • Sleeker – Many people enroll in a personal fitness program because they are unsatisfied with the way they look, or wish to be more aesthetically appealing to their significant others. Shedding pounds, building muscle mass, and getting toned helps people to feel better about themselves, their relationships, and life in general. So whether you do it for yourself, your loved ones, or even just the cat – just do it.

Exercise can give you all of this, in addition to the sense of achievement, self-worth, and independence that only comes with the knowledge that you made an effort and didn’t give up.

Just 30 minutes a day can make it all happen.

So, why wait for the New Year, Steve Austin? Let’s jump to it now. Call 410-750-2228 to get started with Fitness Together Ellicott City today!
