During my career as a fitness professional, I’ve noticed this pattern over and over again: people start piling on pounds during the summer, then they work hard to lose a few of those before the holidays, then they put on more holiday weight, and then it’s back to January and its New Year’s resolutions. Needless to say, the resolve to lose the extra weight rarely meets long-term success.
Well, not this time. This New Year I don’t want you to make a bunch of unrealistic resolutions that set you up for failure; what I need is for you to make just one significant change, and that you stick to it. It could be something as simple eating a healthy breakfast every day or exercising twice a week, or even as ambitious as running a marathon. The important part is to stay true to yourself and your goal.
The push-up, an excellent multi-joint exercise for your upper body, fit for most goals, ages or genders.
SOMETHING I NEVER FORGET
I may miss any other thing, but my lifting gloves and running shoes are always packed and ready for action.
SOMETHING I'M THANKFUL FOR
Our cover subjects. We wanted to portray how healthy, fun and diverse South Florida can be, and I think we managed to capture that feeling. It’s an honor to share this dream with all of you.
MY PET PEEVE AT THE GYM
There’s nothing “unhealthy” about chatting with a pal in the middle of the gym, but please don’t do it while sitting on one of the exercise machines. There are many people who want to use the equipment, you know?
