How to Keep Your “Fitness” Resolutions

on Wednesday, 18 January 2017. Posted in Fitness the "right way"

According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, the seven most popular New Year Resolutions for 2017 were:

#1 Lose weight / eat & be healthier
#2 Life / self improvements
#3 Better financial decisions
#4 Quit smoking
#5 Do more exciting things
#6 Spend more time with family & close friends
#7 Work out more often

The study ALSO revealed that over 50% of all resolutions fail within 6 months. A startling fact attributed to:

• Lack of SUPPORT
• Lack of ACCOUNTABILITY
• Unrealistic or unobtainable GOALS
• Failure to see considerable, lasting CHANGE.

This statistic — and the “top 7 resolutions” list above, confirmed for me why those who join Catalyst STAY with Catalyst: they realize and maintain RESULTS.

The Fat Loss Formula

What is the fastest way to lose fat?

For anyone that has discussed fitness with me or yet any of the Catalyst Health & Fitness professionals for that matter, you’ll likely know that before we answer your question we’ll typically lace it into a few more questions. More specificaly with one.

What’s your goal?

Are you interested in looking your best this coming weekend, as you’ll be wearing a sleeveless dress? Are we prepping for the beach a few months from now or talking about quickly winning a long uphill battle you’ve faced with body weight fluctuation?

Have your pie... and eat it too!

Heck, if you can’t finish it all, we’ll help!

Here at Catalyst, we are among the growing but few members of the fitness community that believe in a flexible approach to your traditional “dieting” that allows for permanent lifestyle changes, that are realistic, safe, sustainable, and yield long term results.

You’ve heard it time and time again that you should fight off every food temptation you have ever had that does not coincide with your typical “clean eating” format and with that, usually throw away any and all satisfaction derived from eating.
