Why Your New Year’s Fitness Goal Needs Work

It’s the new year and you are setting resolutions and goals. At the top of the list? “I want to get in better shape.” Changing something with your fitness is one of the top resolutions on people’s lists. But is your goal weak? For starters don’t just say you want to get in better shape. […]

Getting Past The Plateau

  First off let me talk about exactly what a plateau is and isn’t, because often times a plateau can be mistaken for just a slow down in progress. I hear a lot of people say they’ve hit a plateau because they went a week or two and didn’t gain anything, lose any body fat, […]

How to Get Past Fitness Failures

  Let’s face it, failing is a part of life. It happens. Has there ever been times when you failed in your fitness journey? I know there have been plenty in mine. I’ve had times when I was trapped under weights, times when I didn’t hit the goals I had set for myself, times when […]

The Decision to Get Fit
