A New Year, A New You!

ASFA® Certifications

Starting a new year is the perfect time to start new healthy habits and welcome a new you. Lifestyle changes are gradual and can take time. Making small changes gradually gives you the greatest opportunity for success. The New Year is the perfect time to reset your life and trade out bad habits for newer healthier ones.

Start with an activity that you like and make it fitter. Do you like swimming or like being near water? Contact a trainer that has a water aerobics certification and take your workouts to the pool! If you belong to a health club, try a water fitness class. Water fitness classes are a fun way to get in a full body workout that is low impact and easy on the joints. It is also a great way to connect with other individuals who enjoy being in the water too. Water fitness classes can be performed at your own pace and have an encouraging atmosphere that is non-judgmental.

Do you like riding bikes? You can perform indoor cycling routines in the safety of your own home or health club. There are also indoor cycling classes if you like to do indoor cycling drills with a group of people. Cycling classes are high energy with great music. The instructor can help guide you through the class or you can go at your own pace if you choose to.

Are you more interested in simply performing your daily activities better? Functional training modalities are great at strengthening your everyday skills and moves. Sports coaches will use functional training to strengthen their training and performance. If you are prone to injury, back injury personal training can be used to help strengthen those imbalances and prevent injury all together.

If you are unsure where to start, seek out a personal trainer to help fill in those gaps. A trainer can test you to see where your fitness level is. A trainer can also help design a customizable fitness plan that is personalized for your fitness goals. A trainer can help monitor progress and can help celebrate the little milestones on your fitness journey.
