It’s that time of year when you are going to start hearing the question around the office, and you’ll hear it several times. What is your New Year’s resolution for this year? Some of you will choose lose weight as your New Year’s resolution. Many of you will go out to buy new workout clothes and new workout gloves. You will get fired up and excited about the challenge in front of you. January rolls around and you head to the gym. You get your gym membership and the journey begins. You get on one of the treadmills and do some cardio. After that you walk around and find a few weight machines you like and do a few sets on them. With no real direction or guidance you continue the same routine for the next few weeks. You may lose a couple of pounds, but not nearly enough for all the work you have put in. You continue this for a couple of more weeks with no new results and then you decide to call it quits. You feel as if you gave it a great try, but you just can not lose the weight. This happens all the time.
This year, may I recommend something different?
Every year here at Progressive Health Club we have a Lose to Win Contest; this is the deal of all deals! It is an eight week contest and you get to work with a personal trainer twice a week, you get unlimited access to the gym for the 8 weeks, which includes all classes, and you are able to use an online nutrition program. You get all this for only $259.00!
The Lose to Win Contest is very effective.
The average weight loss for each contestant for 2012 was 17 lbs. Make your New Year’s resolution happen this year. The contest starts on January 2nd, but for the late arrivers you can sign up until January 16th. Let the professionals at progressive Health Club take the guess work out of your fitness plan. You can simply drop by to sign up or give us a call at 941-743-8700 to make your fitness goal a reality in 2013.
