BEST/WORST TIME OF YEAR November through December is traditionally the worst time of year for memberships at CFML. Potential members want to wait until after the holidays to get started and some existing members struggle to get their workouts in. It is the nature of things.
The holiday season includes parties, vacations, family visitors, work events, school breaks and celebrations. Our priorities change, and often, exercise and nutrition are demoted. Each day off gets easier until we decide, “I’ll restart in the new year.” But, the restart is sometimes overwhelming and demoralizing, especially since the new year often includes new challenges at work and home. Not surprising, some people give up on fitness & healthy eating.
This year, prioritize YOU and your health. You will enjoy the holidays more and you’ll enter 2022 feeling pumped and ready to take on all that comes your way.
Here’s a few ideas to get you through the holidays healthy & fit:
- Get an accountability partner
- Allow yourself to eat treats
- Don’t go to the party hungry
