A New Year…A New You!


So we are three weeks into a new year and a new you…Way to go! But, take a moment to realize that it is time to shake things up again…already! Repeating the same workout week in and week out is not helping you get much fitter, says personal trainer Craig Ramsay, author of Anatomy of Muscle Building. “Our body wants us to take the easy road,” he says, adding that muscles will adapt to an exercise program and, ultimately, require less effort to complete it. For better results, always challenge both strength and stamina – that means no magazine reading on the treadmill – and varying what you do from month to month, especially building in what you find difficult.

Most of us know the importance of varying our fitness workouts, so why are we still jumping on the same cardio machines or going for the same three-mile jogs around the neighborhood? “We love routines,” says Robert Sherman, a master trainer for Reebok University. But workout routines are eventual dead ends: results peter out along with our interest and muscles used the same way day in and day out can lead to injury. If you have a program that keeps surprising and taxing your body, you can avoid those plateaus — not to mention keep your fitness workouts from getting stale and boring. So if you normally run, try swimming. If you’re a yoga fan, switch to some weight training. Variety is the spice of life – even your muscles know that!

Thank you! You have shown me that I am stronger than I thought I was. You have shown me how to move from couch potato to an active lifestyle. You have shown me that I can utilize the equipment I already own to create a challenging workout. You have shown me more ways to do…

Dave and I started looking at pictures of ourselves in February and we realized that we needed to start losing weight. Having had two babies within the past three years, we’d gotten ourselves into a rut of just eating whatever was the quickest and not paying attention to what it was that we were eating.…

Other than the increase in strength, the best improvement has been in my flexibility. My hamstrings were extremely tight. The added flexibility has made everything easier! The bending and stretching while working in my garden is no longer an issue making it a more enjoyable experience.

Body Within is awesome! Their unique approach to training has made a huge impact on my son. We see the results not only physically, but emotionally as well. His confidence has soared and it is fun to watch this transformation. They keep it interesting and fun for him and for a young boy/man that is…

I have a very busy schedule with work and family. Without Chris coming to my house twice a week I just would not be consistent. I would recommend using Body Within to anyone who wants to better themselves and lose weight without resorting to diet fads.
