I have to share this image every year because it’s the same story e v e r y year. Here’s some tough love: DON’T BE A STATISTIC! If your resolution is to get fit this year, stick to it. Don’t be part of the temporary crowd that is a detestable nuisance to gym regulars everywhere. Regulars count the days until the yearly health craze is over, so they can finally regain access to equipment; equipment they know how to use, and the flood of new years’ newbies misuse. How do I know this? I’m a gym regular. I get annoyed by the yearly crowd, too. But I wouldn’t get annoyed if all the new members were serious about their goals, instead of being temporary obstacles around the gym.
Think about it. Will you always be that predictable, cyclical exerciser who gives up months into the year? Or will you earn you spot in the gym — or wherever you train? This year, master your goal(s) once and for all.
As an athlete for over 19 years and a broke single mom for most of that time, I created brokesinglemomfitness.com, now LLAFIT.com, to aid anyone who believes the road to fitness requires a lot of cash or time. In reality, the way to fitness is paved with knowledge and firm principles; teaching readers how to master both is the goal of this site. LLAFIT – Lifelong Affordable Fitness
