Two holidays back-to-back can set you back more than you think, unless you are an extremely disciplined person.

Many in America will gain about ten pounds during the holidays. This seems to be repeated every year, and it adds up. Most people never take that extra weight off.

However, that doesn’t have to be the case. Here’s a simple solution for 2016

  • don ‘t wait until New Years to start improving your fitness, start now
  • don’t get caught in the fitness and miracle diet hype that comes each New Years
  • do think seriously about what changes you are willing to make
  • do set achievable fitness goals
  • do take action consistently

It’s just that simple, though it is not easy!

Here’s a few “take home points” for you–

  • if you know how to train effectively already, get to work!
  • if you don’t know how to train effectively, hire a good coach and stick with him
  • you do not need a gym to get in shape, you can train at home just fine
  • don’t waste your money on new equipment,  used equipment is just as good and much cheaper
  • if you want to follow an online coaching program, make sure you do your homework. There are some good ones out there and a whole lot of phonies too. Choose wisely!

For those of you who are experienced in training, this will seem like just plain common sense, however, that is in short supply for the general public. Many people will get scammed during the  New Years rush to get 6-pack abs or movie star figures (without doing any  serious work for it, of course).

Friends don’t let friends get involved in fitness scams!
