Changes This New Year

personal trainers at work personal training New Orleans

I worked at quite a few different health clubs in my years in New Orleans. I am guessing that what goes on in New Orleans in no different than what goes on in other gyms around the country. In 34 years in the fitness business, this is what I have observed every January. The first two weeks, the gym is filled to capacity. There are a lot of new faces. I remember my first year working with a guy who was 290 pounds. He told me he would be doing the butterfly across the pool in six months. He came into gym for hours every single night for five nights in a row. The next week I didn't see him, and I never saw him again. The second two weeks, the gym thins out a bit. The second month, things are pretty much back to normal. There are the same faces you see the year round, plus there are some new faces.

A resolution you can stick to

personal training

This is going to be the year you get in the best shape of your life. You sign for a year, and the automatic bank draft begins. You go each week for the for two or three weeks or maybe even the first couple of months. You miss a couple of weeks and then you miss a couple of months. Eventually you return with the intention of really buckling down. For most that never happens.

You admit defeat so you attempt to cancel. Thre is an expensive cancelation processing fee. There are just a few months left, and you rationalize that it is not worth the hassle of trying to terminate the contract so you do nothing. You cring when you look at your monthly credit card bill and see the card charged for the service you did not use.

Happy New Year.

Some New Years quotes:

Ring out the old, ring in the new,Ring, happy bells, across the snow:The year is going, let him go;Ring out the false, ring in the true.~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850 New Year's Day:

New Year's Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive. ~Jay Leno

Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account. ~Oscar Wilde

Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink and swore is last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever. ~Mark Twain

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. ~Benjamin Franklin

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman

The two week resolution

This is going to be the year you get in the best shape of your life. You sign for a year to get the special rate, and the automatic bank draft begins. You faithfully go each week for the first couple of weeks or maybe even the first couple of months. Eventually your attendance becomes sporadic. You miss a couple of weeks and then you miss a couple of months. Eventually you return with the intention of really buckling down. For most that never happens.

Finally you admit defeat so you try to cancel, and that becomes a hassle and expensive because there is a processing fee. You realize that there are just a few months left, and you rationalize that it is not worth the hassle of trying to terminate the contract. You ride it out cringing when you look at your monthly credit card bill and see the card charged for the service you did not use.

New Year's resolution fitness plan that will change your life and it is one you can stick to

For many, gyms end up being collection agencies disguised as gyms. They depend on people not sticking with their resolutions.

· What good is an exercise program where you go three times a week and you go for two weeks or two months and never go again? This is the scenario that is replayed yearly by millions. Many are repeat offenders. The only thing that ends up lighter is their wallet. People waste thousands on programs they don’t stick to.

· Eleven percent of Americans are members of health clubs. There are more former members of health clubs that there are presently members.

· 30 percent of health club members do not renew their memberships.

· Of that 30 percent a small minority of them use the facility consistently over the course of a year

· You join and then they entice you with large packages of personal training sessions.
