Getting fit in 2015 12-31-14


IN FAMILY FIRST… MANY OF US WILL BE KICKING OFF OUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS TOMORROW. MEREDITH BARACK HAS A LOOK AT HOW YOU CAN REACH YOUR GOALS IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO GET IN SHAPE. ASHLEY… LOSING WEIGHT AND GETTING BACK INTO THE GYM ARE TWO OF THE MOST POPULAR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS. I SPOKE WITH A PERSONAL TRAINER TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW YOU CAN PUT THOSE RESOLUTIONS INTO GEAR, AND MAKE THEM LAST ALL YEAR LONG. CRYSTAL HARVEY LEAD PERSONAL TRAINER, PRINCETON CLUB EAST MANY PEOPLE DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START. NEW YEAR, NEW YOU… BUT YOUR BODY ISN’T GOING TO CHANGE OVERNIGHT. YOU WANT TO EASE INTO IT AND NOT BURN YOURSELF OUT OR OVERLOAD YOURSELF WITH TOO HIGH OF EXPECTATIONS. CRYSTAL SAYS YOU NEED TO BE REALISTIC, AND LEARN WHAT’S THE BEST FOR YOU TO ACHIEVE YOUR LONGTERM GOALS. AND THEN THE SHORT TERM ONES TOO THAT WEEK BY WEEK YOU CAN TRACK YOUR PROGRESS SAYING ‘HEY, I WANNA LOSE TWO POUNDS IN THIS WEEK.’ DON’T COMPLICATE THINGS- SET UP A WORKOUT ROUTINE TAILORED TO YOU. WHAT YOU DO IN THAT HOUR WILL HELP YOU ESTABLISH HOW MUCH CARDIO, HOW MUCH WEIGHLIFTING BECAUSE BOTH ARE IMPORTANT TOGETHER. A GOOD WAY TO STAY MOTIVATED AND NOT FALL OFF COURSE… I’M A BIG FAN OF WORKOUT JOURNALS SO NOT ONLY TRACKING YOUR FOOD BUT ALSO WHERE YOUR WORKOUT IS AS YOU’RE GOING. THIS PERSONAL TRAINER’S NUMBER ONE PIECE OF ADVICE TO MAKING THAT RESOLUTION LAST ALL OF 2015 AND BEYOND? DON’T BE TOO HARD ON YOURSELF, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO LOSE YOUR 50 POUNDS IN A MONTH SO AGAIN IF YOU SET THOSE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS MONTH TO MONTH YOU’RE GOING TO BE MOTIVATED A LITTLE BIT LONGER TOO. CRYSTAL SAYS ALSO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE VARIETY OF WAYS TO WORKOUT NOW. BETWEEN REGULAR CARDIO AND WEIGHTLIFTING, DIFFERENT CLASSES, SWIMMING, AND MUCH MORE– CHANGING THINGS UP WILL KEEP YOU FROM GETTING BORED.
