The Resolution Revolution

Inevitably every year in December I'm asked, "I bet you can't wait for those New Year’s resolutions?" Every year my reply is the same: "We don't get that here." My logic rests in our successes with athletes, fitness competitors or those who want better health and vigor in their daily life. If you’re going to be successful in fitness, it's not because of New Years. So I'll share three suggestions to make your resolution more effective.

First, if you visit most any fitness center or gym, the people in the best shape with the most athletic physiques are lifting weights. There is no use in trying to reinvent the wheel when there is something that is already rolling, which is resistance training in fitness. There is no workout, not aerobic, not cardiovascular, not even high-temperature yoga classes that will consistently yield the calorie expenditure of an appropriately applied resistance training program. The reason is due to the unending variation or combination of exercises that generate muscle soreness, which in turn increases metabolism in recuperation. Remember the SAID Principle? Specific adaption to applied demand; it's what we do when challenged. Through resistance training, we can continue to create ways to stimulate increased fitness.

Second, not you, not me (or at least most of us over 35), can out run a bad diet, even with exercise. Just as in my first suggestion where we are trying to create calorie expenditure, here we are looking at ways to limit calorie intake. At the end of the day, if you are not addressing this very situation you probably are not going to achieve the goals you have set for yourself. It's all about calories in vs. calories out. Nutrition can make or break your program.

Third, it's okay to have a short-term goal. Something in the three- to six-month range is good, but that is not where it ends. All those buffed models that we see in fitness magazines or on television and in movies, those people are way past the 3-6 month range. If you really want to change anything it will absolutely take commitment. It will be a lifestyle change that must continue because Rome was not built in a day, after all.

 It doesn't matter what your goal is, weight loss, healthier lifestyle or better performance on the field, courts or pitch, we can help you at Impact Performance & Fitness. It’s like no place else in the fitness universe! Call 817.416.3838 to schedule a visit today.
