I’m Tired of this Question… Here’s a Solution

Standard

“When will all of these New Year’s Resolutioners just give up and leave our gym already?”

Wow. After working in a large, corporate gym setting for the past four January’s I have heard this question (or some variation of it) more times than I could ever count. The past three years when asked this question I would always smile, giggle and tell the person asking me to just simply wait it out. “Don’t worry, by the first week of March, they’ll all be gone”. I feel bad admitting it but honestly, I just wanted to train my clients without having to fight with people over equipment.

I’m a horrible person. Correction. I WAS a horrible person. I’m not sure what changed in my brain but this year I get a little bit mad when I hear this question.

Why should we want people to give up after two months? Shouldn’t we get excited because of all the newly motivated people surrounding us? This year I am SO proud of everyone who bombardes my small training area and congests the Cardio room. In fact, these “new year’s resolutioners” have inspired me. Thank you to all of the newly motivated people, I hope you can find happiness in living a healthy lifestyle and choose to stick with the daily dose of physical activity.

IF you are one of my fellow gym junkies who hates this time of year, try and see the positive. Congratulate the newbies for actually joining and taking the first step to committing to a life of good health.

NOW… IF you just can’t stand it, here is another great at home workout!
