5 Reasons New Year's Resolutions Often Fail, Manhattan, New York

The clock has struck midnight, the partying is through. Have you started your fitness resolution? Remember, it is up to you!

So why exactly do our resolutions to take better care of ourselves often times lose steam as soon as the hangover clears?

Top Five Reasons New Year's Resolutions To Be Healthier Often Fail

1. I Don't Know How To Exercise!
That is what a personal trainer is for! A trainer can help with motivation, knowledge, guidance and especially that proverbial kick in the butt when you don't feel up to working out.

2. I Don't Have Time!
Physically active people do not necessarily have more free time than those more sedentary. Exercise generates energy, and the more energy you have, the better you will feel in all aspects of your life.

3. Magic Bullet Theory!
Do not wait around for that magic diet, pill, or drink. If you do, you will be singing the same tune in the new year. The first step in achieving anything is to simply take action towards it!

4. Exercise Hurts!
If you have exercised you know the reward outweighs any temporary aches and pains. Those aches are the natural response to your body being challenged and woken up in ways it may not have experienced.

5. I Did Not Contact Mind Over Matter!
It is not too late; in fact it is never too late. If you have taken the time to read this then the first step is complete.

You don't have to wait until you're all out of time and energy to help keep your resolution to get in shape this year. In fact, finding someone to push you towards accomplishing your goals may be exactly what you need. To find out more about how to get fit this year, cross No. 5 off of your list, and visit Mind Over Matter for a FREE consultation and a great start to the new year!
