January is sign up season. Loads of ‘Special Offers’, ’Beginner Programs’ and ’Only 3 spaces left’ promotions that all disappear in 24 hours, you better act quickly!
If you are thinking of getting started with a fitness program it’s probably the most difficult time of year to make a decision. There are a plethora of options, each guaranteed to get you into the best shape of your life in only 7 minutes!
What makes it even more challenging is this subconscious belief that whatever path you choose, if you don't stick to it then your entire year’s fitness plans are doomed and so it’s roll on 2021.
Obviously that's not true as you can start anytime but it’s a belief that the fitness industry will gleefully take advantage of to help sales.
Ultimately the most important thing is that you start something. Start with anything and give it a couple of months. If it doesn’t fit, do something else, but don’t let that stop you from starting.
Most of us who have been training a while know what is really out there: the fitness industry’s version of pyramid schemes, magic detoxes and the next ultimate fat torching diet or snake oil. There’s also a lot of copycats doing their own version of established, professional programs under a different banner.
We could write about the dangers, negatives and downfalls of all of the above but that isn’t going to help our clients improve their health and fitness.
What will help our clients is this:
Professional, qualified coaches who love to coach.
A learning curve (which never ends) where health & fitness becomes part of your life.
A simple but effective eating plan.
A program to suit every fitness goal whether in a class, 1-1 or small group setting.
A community of friendly people who like a laugh and have learnt how to enjoy exercise.
It took us a long time to build this culture and if you know someone here, I'll bet that they love it.
Just ask them.
