Do you feel in control of your health? The tendency at the start of a new year is to look ahead, set goals, and make resolutions about your future. Maybe you fell short on reaching some fitness and wellness goals last year because of work, kids, unexpected events, and life. Perhaps you find yourself once again setting the same goals you had from the previous year. You cross your fingers and hope that this year will be different. At Fitness Unlimited, it can and will be different because, your “Health is in Your Hands.”
While in college, I took a class called “Health in Your Hands,” which influenced me to this day. Dr. Virgillio, the professor, drilled into us the importance of taking personal ownership and getting rid of excuses for what we did or didn’t do. She wanted us to understand that it was up to each of us to do our due diligence when it came to all aspects of our lives – nutrition, exercise and wellness, preventative care, and overall mental health, among others. “Health in Your Hands” changed forever the way I look at setting goals and achieving results, and I hope that some of the principles can help you reach your goals.
There are many different variables to a successful fitness and wellness program, but the most important one is the power of decision. When you are 100% committed to a goal, almost anything is possible. You decide how to fit in exercise and prepare meals. You may decide to get up earlier, get home later, or not attend every social event. You realize that no one can do this for you and that there is no quick fix. You understand that you are not going to just wake up with results; you are going to have to work for them. When you are faced with setbacks, you fight through them and get back on track. What you decide to do everyday matters more than what you do once in awhile.
Once you have committed to the decision to put your “Health in Your Hands,” you need to have a plan in place that will get you results. Whether you decide to enlist the help of a professional or do it on your own, we have every resource accessible to you at Fitness Unlimited. Our programs work, our classes work, and our trainers are highly educated and experienced to provide you with the best plan to meet your health and fitness needs and achieve your goals. However, we cannot make the decision for you and we cannot do the work for you. But we can administer the best program with the highest level of enthusiasm and dedication to the member who is ready, committed, and decides to get the job done.
Make 2017 the year that you decide to put your Health in Your Hands, and the Fitness Unlimited Professionals will get you there with education, motivation, inspiration, and perspiration!
