A New Years Resolution

A New Years Resolution

Did you know that most New Years Resolutions are unsuccessful? THEY ARE! There’s nothing better than exercising when it works with your schedule. The problem is you have a busy schedule and exercising takes a back seat on the ‘to do list.’

That’s why most gyms capitalize on you at this time of the year. They know what should be important to you… YOUR HEALTH and losing that damn extra 10 pounds you gained this past year. This is your year and you’re going to start it off right! So, you head to your local gym and sign up at a sickly cheap New Year’s rate. local gym

That’s general membership plus all their classes! What a deal! You head in motivated and maybe even purchase some personal training to get an extra kick. Week one you’re in the gym 5 days a week. Week two you’re in the gym 3 days, then week three 2 etc.  Now, comes February… it’s too cold to go out. Maybe you will do a workout at home, but then you sit on the couch and watch Showtime because Homeland is finally back on this February!

This is why big gyms are successful. They will get you in at a cheap rate. You’ll never show up and they keep billing your card, because their motivation is getting the masses through their doors. You need a gym that focuses on you!

Group classes shouldn’t be 25 people jumping around and flopping on the floor.

If your interested in group classes, then those classes should be small and intimate. This is just one of the things you should consider when looking into a gym or fitness challenge.

For you to be successful this 2020, you need to know how a gym focuses on you…

  • How do they warm up?
  • Do they teach technique or throw you into the chaos?
  • Do they have nutrition guidelines?
  • Do the trainers and other members hold you accountable?
  • Is there a community feel?

You need structure! Say it again… YOU NEED STRUCTURE!

There are a few gyms here in the area that I highly recommend and personally enjoy to follow on social media. These gyms give you STRUCTURE and SUPPORT!

These gyms are run by people who are passionate about training and the relationships with their clients. Stop paying the big corporate franchised gyms who see you as a number and get with the mom and pop gyms.

If I didn’t’ mention you, I’m sorry. I don’t follow you on social media. So, hit me up with a FOLLOW at CriticalMassNJ 

Jersey Shore Mace Workshop Was a SUCCESS!

Jersey Shore Mace was at Critical Mass

Jersey Shore Mace did some work here at Critical Mass this past weekend. This event was 2+ hours filled with information regarding the Mace and all it can be used for. The Mace is a tool once used for killing, but now we use for fitness. First being brought to light within social media, by ONNIT and then developed further by a crew of fitness professionals like Ken Potis, Leo Savage and Fred Mohr. Ken Potis started Mace training 3 years ago and took it to another level and developed a workout that actually burns more calories than the boot camps and other group classes here at the Jersey Shore. That’s why we incorporate this into our classes and is one of the featured tools used in the Lift. Swing. Flow. Fitness Challenge starting this January 5th 2020 here in Tinton Falls, New Jersey.

Getting fit and staying healthy is hard but if you surround yourself with motivating people and trust their methods, you will see results. This tool along with everything else offered is a great way to reach your goals. Trust the process. Know it will take some time, but you will have fun.
