Some Thoughts on New Year’s Resolutions

About a week ago, I was having a conversation with one of my personal training clients. The topic had come up about how taking charge of their health was near the top of just about every New Year’s resolutions list you can think of. He had quipped that he didn’t buy into it, because if there was something that you wanted to do, don’t wait for the year to change, just do it.

I agree and disagree at the same time. No, not because I’m a Libra and can’t make up my mind. But because many people simply don’t think about it during the other times of the year.

The New Year brings up an opportunity to ask yourself “What do I want to accomplish this year?” or “What can I do to improve myself this year?” It’s a way of proactively taking charge of your life.


And the problem is, most people don’t ever take a moment to stop and think “What do I want?”

When you don’t ever take the time to figure out what you want, you just kind of drift through life taking whatever comes your way, only improving when something that started as a little thought, has now become too big to ignore.

I often times see this in health, fitness, strength, losing fat etc. They don’t decide to do anything about it until they have that wake up call that jars them into action. The longer you wait, the harder it becomes.

If you have set taking charge of your health, getting stronger or losing weight and all the awesomeness that comes with it and you are unsure what to do, I have good news! I have a one week trial membership available at no cost where I will teach you how to get stronger, leaner, fitter and healthier, safely and effectively.
