Motivational Tips to Jump Start Your Fitness Goals for the New Year

One2One BodyScapes Offers Easy Tips to Achieve the Country's #1 New Year's Resolution

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - Weight loss has always been one of the most popular New Year's resolutions but, for many, just getting started on a fitness plan can be an extreme challenge! Dave Pardue, a top trainer and manager at One2One BodyScapes, New England's premiere personal training studios, offers his motivational tips to help anyone looking to start a regular fitness routine.

1.   Schedule your workout as an appointment
     Just like you wouldn't miss a scheduled doctor's appointment or
     work meeting, you'll be more apt to fit in your workout if you set
     aside time in your schedule.

2.   If your time is limited, try to do something physical for at least
     10 to 15 minutes
     Any amount of physical activity is better than nothing! You never
     know -- once you get started you may just keep going.

3.   Add variety to your fitness regime
     Don't bore yourself with the same type of physical activity over and
     over again. Challenge a friend to a tennis match, take a walk one day
     and an exercise class the next. Mix it up!

4.   Keep old photos, clothes in a smaller size or a picture of a marathon
     medal on display to remind yourself of a goal
     Having visual reminders will help you to stay on track and remember
     what you've set yourself up to accomplish.

5.   Make sure your fitness plan is convenient
     Join a gym or work with a personal trainer that is on your way home
     from work or close to where you live. Or, if you plan to work out at
     home, make sure the necessary equipment is easily available.

6.   Avoid the expectation of immediate results
     It is part of the American culture to assume results can be achieved
     quickly. Avoid falling into that trap. You will see results if you
     stick with a plan but give it time!
