3 Ways To Stay On Track Through The Holidays

3 Ways To Stay On Track Through The Holidays

We are in the time of the year where most people hang up their gym shoes and call it quits until January.

Thanksgiving.

Holiday parties.

Vacations or weekends out of town.

With all of these things going on, time is your most valuable asset.

We get it, between the obligations, cold and overall busyness of the time of year, fitness takes a back seat. 

One of our members was asked why she comes and works out at 5am on the days she works from home.

Her response: “There are a million things throughout the day that will steal my time. But nobody will steal my time at 5am.”

Our goal is to help you have the resiliency and perfect plan to get through the holidays.

It’s okay if you don’t make huge improvements this time of year!

It’s amazing to maintain your current level of fitness and make ”me” time for yourself everyday.

Don’t back slide now, with the hopes you will be able to pick it backup on January 1st. That’s why we are here- to prevent backslide.

You’re going to take this year by the horns and actually get through the season without joining the nearly 90%, yes you read that right, 90% of population that sees an increase on the scale and decrease in activity. 

Here are our top 3 Tips For Staying On Track Through The Holidays:
1. Drink Water

Water is so overlooked when it comes to maintaining your current level of fitness.

Winter or summer, water is necessary to remain hydrated even through colder months.

Generally, when hunger strikes you, you may be dehydrated and thirsty!

So, instead of reaching for the pumpkin pie or Christmas cookie, reach for a glass of water.

Drink your water, and if you’re still hungry, reach for lean proteins and veggies.

2. Move

Move and workout for health.

Workout for sanity.

Whatever the reason, get some movement everyday!

Especially on days when you know you will eat and drink whatever you like, workout!

Earn that pie. And earn those carbs!

Our goal for you is to remain committed and confident to your workout routine.

That looks like crushing a great workout or personal training session in the morning, and then treating yourself with some holiday foods or treats knowing you earned it.

3. Give yourself grace!

Realize that you are going to mess up.

Realize that messing up is totally okay!

Giving yourself a hard time because you had an extra cookie that your favorite aunt made does not make you a bad person.

Remember, long term habits are what create results whether in the good or the bad.

If you’re constantly beating yourself up for tiny missteps you’re putting your overall well being at a disadvantage.

Our goal at our small, West Ashley, SC gym is to help you reach your goals.

We do this by forming 1-on-1 personal connections with each client, so we can better understand your goals and the motivations to reach those goals.

It all begins with a free conversation with one of our professional coaches to build a path for you.
