Energy for the New Year!

Linda Stultz
Certified Fitness Trainer

(1/2017) Each year I like to hold this open house for people to come and see how they can start the year off right by committing to an exercise program that will improve their health while having fun. Most people donít think of exercising as fun but if you find something you enjoy while helping you feel better you are getting two for one. This is the time of year that we all think about making a New Yearís Resolution, even if you say you are not making one because you never keep the resolution you make. We think of New Yearís as a fresh start and this is the perfect time to do something good for you. Over the holidays we are so busy baking and buying gifts for others that we usually donít think about ourselves. When we do think about how we feel, it is about how many cookies we ate at the office party or how tight our jeans fit all of sudden. Those extra pounds sneak up fast over the holidays and thatís why we need to think about getting them off and improving our overall health for the year to come. Proper diet and exercise can get you back to your pre-holiday size and energy level in a short amount of time. You may be surprised at how much you look forward to your exercise sessions. Sometimes you feel like doing something else instead of going for a walk or doing your weightlifting program but if you remember how good you feel, both physically and mentally after a good hard workout, you will be putting your sneakers on and heading for those weights in a hurry. Iím not telling you anything you havenít heard many times before, but I like to remind everyone that it is so important to take care of yourself. Good food and exercise are the best and safest ways to do that. I have said many times before that a person can develop a bad habit in a few weeks but it take about six to eight weeks to develop a good habit and stick to it. Give yourself the gift of developing a good habit of eating well and starting and staying with an exercise program that you enjoy for a few months. I am certain you will feel better, improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose numbers and even improve your skin, nails and of course the way your clothes fit. All of these benefits will keep you exercising for the rest of your life.

Mark your calendar and set aside a few minutes to come to my open house and see what I have to offer. This may be the best time you take for yourself and may be the start of a whole new you. I am located at 285 Boyle Rd. Fairfield. This is just minutes from Emmitsburg, Fairfield, Gettysburg, Thurmont and you. The date of the Open House is January 7, 2017 from 10 till 1 but if this is not convenient for you, just give me a call at 717-334-6009 to set up a time to come check out my facility for yourself. Hope to see you soon and remember to Keep Moving!
