Middletown, NY, December 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With a new year just around the corner, the promise of a new “you” is taking shape in the minds of millions of Americans determined to stick with their New Year’s Resolution goals in 2010.
To give the nation the ammunition it needs to kick the New Year off right, Gold’s Gym Middletown, the world’s leading authority on health and fitness, has consulted with leading fitness experts and celebrity trainers to issue the Top Ten List of “Fail Proof” Resolution Tips to avoid fitness failure in the year ahead. In addition, the company is opening its doors to the public from January 1st through January 3rd and offering free workouts and tips.
“Every year, millions of people make a pledge to get fit in the New Year, “said Bob Roche, from Gold’s Gym. “Yet despite their best efforts, most get sidetracked because they don’t have a fail proof action plan in place. With obesity rates and health care costs rising at an alarming rate, we wanted to arm Americans with the information and understanding needed to ensure that they reach and maintain their fitness goals. By consulting with the experts on the Gold’s Gym Fitness Institute, we have put together the most comprehensive list of tips, taking ‘failure’ out of the nation’s vocabulary.”
The following Top Ten List of “Fail Proof” Resolution tips was created through a collaboration with experts on the world-renowned Gold’s Gym Fitness Institute including prominent sports psychologist, Dr. Belisa Vranich and leading celebrity trainers, Mike Ryan and Adam Friedman.
The Top Ten List of “Fail Proof” Resolution Tips
1. Visualize your end result. Create a strong image in your mind of what you want to look and feel like when you reach your goals. Remember it throughout the process.
2. Get a fitness assessment. It’s critical to know your starting point and learn your strengths and weaknesses. Going forward, continue to get a fitness reassessment every 8-12 weeks to track your progress.
3. A goal without a plan is only a wish. Stop wishing you were in great shape and start mapping out a concrete plan to get there.
4. Set small achievable goals that build momentum. While long term goals are important, short term goals give you mini successes throughout your journey to get in shape.
5. Create a schedule to reinforce consistency.
6. Journal your exercise and dietary intake on a daily basis to be present with the day-to-day process.
7. Change up your workout routine every 4-6 weeks. Strive for consistent progression in your program in a way that challenges the nervous system.
8. Troubleshoot Your Excuses – How would you respond to your excuses? Write these excuses down…you’ll be surprised at how impactful it can be to see your excuses written out!
9. Tell all of your friends your goals. This creates a support system as well as an accountability that will make you less likely to back out on working out.
10. Be patient with seeing results.
