New Year, New You? No! Same You — But Stronger

Go ahead, use the start of a new year to commit to your own goals in AbsoluteFIT!


There’s a reason gyms fill up in January: In this weird liminal space between Christmas and New Year’s, it’s hard not to find yourself thinking of the year to come, and what changes you want to make. If you’ve decided to commit to fitness, then, what better time to start than the first days of the New Year?

And in my opinion, sticking with your new commitment is mostly a matter of perspective. It’s not about becoming a new person, per se; it’s about making the most of what you’ve got, and treating yourself as if you deserve to expend the effort on yourself to get stronger and healthier.

This is what appeals to me most about AbsoluteFIT: It’s an investment in yourself, for yourself. You will, definitely, see changes if you do the workouts and pay attention to your nutrition. But you will feel changes even during your first workout. It’s empowering in the most literal sense: It gives you power! And the community of people who join you in the studio on their own AbsoluteFIT journeys is the best company to have as you embark on — or continue — your own.

Happy New Year, everyone — and whether you’re brand new to AbsoluteFIT or an old pro like me, I hope to see you kickin’ butt and takin’ names in 2017!
