Its 2019, after 15 years as a fitness professional, there is officially no magic that happens on Jan. 1 of every year that is all of the sudden going to make you a different person. The real emotion is a build-up of feeling full, bloated, tired and exhausted from a 12-week holiday run that starts the week before Halloween and runs through the new year.
There are so many distractions during the fourth quarter of every year that it is just as hard for the fittest mom and dad to stick to their aesthetic and performance goals as anyone else. For that reason, fitness professionals don’t push everyone to do anything other than their personal best while enjoying the holiday season.
Now, there are some who still push through and work overtime to finish the fourth quarter strong, but nine times out of ten it’s because they didn’t dedicate enough time and discipline during the first three quarters of the year.
If you’re still with me, you’re probably realizing that it is important to get your exercise regime started at the beginning of the year — and it is, but only so you don’t have to be the one that says they’re going to start in January. The truth is, it’s important to start sooner than later, no matter what time of year it is. We’re all busy — most of us have kids, jobs, employees and major responsibilities.
People keep searching for the right time to start working out — when they’re less busy, when the kids go back to school, when they retire, etc. The problem with that mindset is, those people never start until they’re forced to start.
I’ve serviced over 50,000 hours of personal training in the last 15 years and I would estimate that 90 percent of my clients have started after they had to for the following reasons: cancer, diabetes, pre-diabetic, syndrome X, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, unsuccessful weight loss surgery, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, back pain, neck pain, unsuccessful shoulder surgery, frozen shoulder, injured at another gym, physician recommended medication at last visit, senior year of high school sports is coming up and they need to get stronger to increase sports performance, etc.
I can go on forever but that’s enough for now. If you’re reading this and you fall into one of those categories, seek out a fitness professional who has the expertise to help you — and start sooner than later to get the ball rolling. If you don’t fall into any of those categories, start now because 90 percent of those conditions are 100 percent preventable with the right fitness, nutrition and wellness program that is customized to your current state of health and fitness.
