We all make New Year’s resolutions. They differ from person to person, but one tends to stick out on most people’s lists, getting in shape. Many times even just starting down the road to fitness can be overwhelming. Where do you even start?
There are big gyms with hundreds of machines, smaller more personal gyms, and sport focused facilities. We hope to take some of the stress out of the equation. We’ve compiled a list of four different types of exercise that are sure kick start your fitness plan and help you stick to your New Year’s resolutions.
Looking to fulfill your New Year’s resolutions, but want to avoid hours on the treadmill? Give yoga a try. One place to begin is Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Center. It’s a way to restore your physical and mental state after the craziness of the holidays. Kaia Yoga will help you create a healthier lifestyle, reduce stress, and achieve a greater level of fitness. They have an amazing special offers for new customers, which includes 30 days of unlimited yoga for only $30! A no-commit way to test out if yoga is for you.
If you want something a more fast paced than yoga, consider spinning. One studio, JoyRide Cycling Studio, offers a multitude of classes, ranging from beginning spinning classes to Figure Method. They even have a new program called JoyMama, which is designed to target baby weight no matter if your kids are months or years old. It is a twelve-week program where you work with a consultant to achieve your fitness goals. They help you plan out your week’s workouts, choosing from mat Pilates, TabataRide, JoyCircut, Spinlates, and Figure Method among others.
Have you ever wanted a personal trainer? Are you short on time? Koko Fit Club is an automated training system that designs personalized workouts in thirty minutes or less. When you sign up for Koko, you take an assessment, set your goals, and go. You get a USB drive, which you plug into the SmartTrainer you use. From there your automated trainer guides you through each movement, making sure you are performing the move correctly, at the right pace, and at the right weight. They also have programs that will talk you through cardio workouts, which are sure to get your heart pumping. All their workouts are under thirty minutes, but the best part is that you burn as many calories in this thirty minute period as you would in a 60+ minute workout at a traditional gym. A Koko gym just opened by Fresh Market.
Hopefully this will help you get started on your resolutions!
