The New Year- Why Wait?

Well, it's about that time! The holidays are well underway and fitting into that New Year's Eve dress is well, catching up with us. Many people don't start their workout programs till after the new year. In fact it's one of the best months for personal trainers because everyone is trying to reach their new years resolution. Keep in mind that there are at least 2 weeks left until New Years, actually less than 2 weeks, so why wait. Start your workout program today vs. Monday or Sunday or Jan 2.

Fitness with a PURPOSE

www.meganmerchant.comRecently I was bored with my fitness routine and was not motivated to get out of bed for it.  My parents asked me get their mail while out of town (an hour drive to and fro).  So I packed a lunch for myself and the kids, determined to play outside while stopping by.  I saw a rake on the ground in their yard and one thing led to another...  My kids and I ended up bagging 9 bags of leaves and enjoying 2 hours outside; it was fantastic!

Fit Through The Holidays -- Part 3

This last week before Christmas and then through the New Year's eve you may be invited to and/or hosting more parties than you can shake a stick at. Lots of fun, but the amount of eating and drinking you are likely to do at these parties can do a number on your waistline.

What do you want?

I love high intensity workouts & anything that crushes it!  I love pushing myself to see what I can do.  However, some do not like this type of workout.  Tell me what you like--do you like the same as I do, more extreme, are you more of a TurboJam, Curves, Jazzercise, go to the gym person, go for a walk/jog/run, or simply something you can do in your living room person?  I like to know what everyone is doing because an active lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle.  Please leave a comment or contact me.  I look forward to your answers!

You will be amazed when you go back and see later your insights and how it will help you reach your goals to a healthier and happier life!
