You’ve seen this happen every year: The gyms are filled to the brim with people at the beginning of the New Year. By late February and early March, they are all gone once again. Don’t worry, they’ll be back next year…..
Why does this happen? Year after year after year. My theory is people start with the best of intentions to be sure. But, what they aren’t sure of is how to get results. They walk into the gym that first day and look at the equipment. They circle the rack of dumbbells…..they look at the clock…..they decide they will walk on the treadmill. And, they do. But, they don’t know how long they should go or at what speed/incline. Should they lift weights? Oh boy, there’s a whole additional issue. What kind of weights? Dumbbells? Barbells? Machines? Kettlebells? And how many reps? How many sets? How heavy?
Because most people aren’t sure what to do in the gym, they don’t get the best results. When they aren’t getting results they get frustrated. Then they quit. I get it.
That’s where I come in. I am a certified personal trainer. I stay on top of my business and stay updated on the latest and greatest in fitness/health. This is my lifelong passion.
I design our boot camp workouts to work like “metabolic barn burners”. And, most importantly, I get results. It’s what drives me.
So, there’s more to this story…..on that first unseasonably warm spring day we get; you know the one. It’s usually in April, but it can happen in March, too. That day when the sun is shining and it’s warm outside. It’s the first day in months when we can actually be outside without our big winter jackets on. People come outside in t-shirts in order to feel the sun on their skin. That day my phone rings off the hook. People want to join boot camp in droves. What happens is they are out in a t-shirt for the first time in months and they notice their triceps muscle is jiggly. Their buns are like jello and their bellies are overlapping their belts. I welcome them all with open arms. And, I’ll get them results, too. However, I can’t help but think about my boot campers..they have been training all winter. And, when that first warm day comes, they take their coats off and rock their t-shirts!
So, where will you be in April?
