fitness is a way of life

As we ring in the New Year of 2012, many of you have created resolutions to lose weight, chisel your body and become healthier.  First and foremost, congratulations for taking initiative in wanting to make some changes to create a healthier you!  But before you create your long-term goal along with your plan of action, which consists of your short-term goals, ask yourself what is your motive?  What drives you to want to accomplish this goal?  Is it only to look great in your bikini or board shorts for the spring break?  Would you rather be a seasonal exerciser or be in shape and healthy year-round?  It seems like a no-brainer that everyone would want to look amazing and feel great throughout the year. So why not make fitness a lifestyle rather than settle for a destination?  When you adopt fitness as a lifestyle, it no longer feels like a chore and it becomes second nature to you especially once you see or feel the positive physical and physiological affects on your body.  

If you don't enjoy being in the gym or find that you get bored, pick up activities that you do enjoy like hiking, group fitness classes or hire a personal trainer to create fun, yet challenging workouts.  Continue to set the bar higher than before each time you reach a goal so fitness never becomes a destination and rather a journey to longevity and health.  In the wise words of Dr. Kenneth Cooper, "Fitness is a journey, not a destination.  It must be continued for the rest of your life."
