In January, we often resolve to change our bodies for the better. By the time February comes around, that initial stage of excitement is has often died.
Gaye George, a stay at home mom, recommitted herself to fitness when her husband offered her personal training sessions at Valdosta's American Bodyworks for Christmas.
"I had been exercising fairly consistently over several years, and just was frustrated with the results I was getting," she says.
Like most of us, Gaye says consistency was the greatest challenge.
"As a mother, I have 3 children. There's always a field trip, or a sick child, or just activities. I try to be involved in the community, so I can come up with any reason NOT to exercise," she explains.
Gaye also faces a genetic threat of heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Experts advise following in her footsteps, and preventing problems before they arise.
To turn your fitness resolution into a life style, personal trainer Billy Hamilton offers several tips. For starters, he recommends making short-term goals instead of more ambitious long-term ones.
"It might be something as simple as for your first month you want to average three to four days a week coming to the gym and working out," says Hamilton.
Nutrition is also vital. Experts suggest preparing meals in advance and keeping them with you. "It's really easy for me to drive through a fast food restaurant. Not that those things are going to kill you, but they'll kill you if you do it all the time," Hamilton points out.
These small lifestyle changes create big changes in your body. Adopting just a few of them will help you keep that resolution throughout the entire year
