Did you make resolutions? Statistics from New Year resolutions, especially fitness ones, are terrible!

Fitness centers are packed on January 2 and then become ghost towns by March 2.

At Personally Fit, we ask our clients to consider how they are going to get their workouts in when their kids are sick, or when they have to travel for work, or have to check on their aging parents. Real life happens, and it can delay the most well-intentioned of programs.

Here are some good strategies:

First, there is no perfect. Your plan has to work when life is messy and complicated because… life!

Second, it doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing program. Either you do PX-90 or eat super clean or it’s not worth doing?

That is a recipe for failure. If you think about it, most health and fitness plans live outside the context of real life. The diet plan you read in monthly fitness magazines or the workout DVD advertised on TV was never built to accommodate sick kids, work deadlines, and your infirmed parents.

It’s not about being perfect, it’s about gradual and continuous improvement.

We can’t wait to see what you accomplish in 2016 – and we’re here for you!
