It's the middle of January and I'll bet most of us have either not started or already abandoned our New Year's resolutions. New Year's resolutions seem to be hard to keep. Maybe it's because we ask too much of ourselves. Take fitness resolutions for instance. Ever start a exercise program in the New Year, maybe this year, only to quit after a couple of weeks? Me too! Why is exercise so hard to stick with? I've been teaching exercise for 30 years and the reason I've heard most often from my students is, it's too hard. You want to do it. You know fitness equals longevity. You know you should do it. You know you have to do it, but you hate it. It's not fun. You push yourself for a couple of weeks and then you can't do it any more, so you quit. You've tried this a bunch of times over the years and quit every time. Sound familiar? Why do so many of us get stuck in that cycle of fitness failure, and how can we break that cycle? I've given this a lot of thought over the years, and I've developed a structure that works for most of my clients. I'm happy to share it with you.
