Typically this is the time of year when spring training is ending and vacations and summer breaks are beginning. You see it in the gym all around you as the Eat Smart 30 day Challenge winds down, and the Fantastic Four contest is ending, and members and teams are revealing their new selves and their amazing results. Just take a look at all the before and after pictures on the Fitness Incentive Facebook page…they’re impressive. Hundreds of members losing thousands of pounds and inches, literally. And if they can do it, so can you!

You don’t have to start on January 1st with a New Years resolution, or spring training, or the annual Fantastic 4 Contest. You just have to start NOW!! There is no better time of year to get started on your fitness and weight loss goals and the best moment to begin the journey is today. Picture what your results will look like in two weeks, a month, six months and a year. A five-pound weight loss, or fifteen pounds or fifty plus pounds. If you want it, if you’ve been thinking about it, if you’ve been procrastinating, it’s finally the right time. And whether your goal is focused on 30 days, or until July 4th, or 8 weeks, or until “the wedding,” or until “the reunion,” you just have to take the first step, and that first step is the hardest one of the entire journey. You need to say it, believe it and commit to it. Once you commit, there’s so much support to help you succeed.
That’s what we’re here for! Fitness Incentive has an incredible staff of experts. A registered dietician who can help you to stop dieting once and for all and yet help you reach your weight loss goals. You will learn the science behind controlling your appetite and no longer have to depend on sheer willpower. Our personal training staff features a wide variety of trainers who can assess you, help you set your goals, and help you succeed in reaching them. All you have to do is decide that this is the day. And if this is the day, then, fill out this form:

It’s as simple as that, and we’ll take it from there! We’ll set you up with the trainer that suits you best, and you’ll be on your way to the new you. It’s really very easy, yet taking the first step is the most difficult. After that, it’s a journey of many small steps. With training you will get nutritional direction, you will be educated about weight loss, body fat composition, cardiovascular activities, resistance and weight training, and proper form. Your trainer will fine-tune workouts specifically for you and your goals. Your workouts will be more productive. You will stay on track. You will be accountable. You will be motivated, and you will succeed!

The only thing holding you back is YOU. We are usually our own worst enemies. We judge ourselves so harshly. We don’t define our goals, or when we do, we sometimes have unrealistic, unachievable goals, like expecting to lose 10 pounds in just one week of “dieting.” We beat ourselves up when we have a moment’s weakness. We listen to that negative voice in our head telling us we can’t or that we failed, yet we would never do this to anyone else. In fact, we encourage everyone around us…we encourage our children, our spouses, our friends and our co-workers. It’s about time we recognize how we sabotage ourselves and reach out for help in the FI community.
The days are getting longer now, so right about the time you would have been ready to curl up on the couch on a cold fall, winter and spring night, the outdoors and the gym are calling you. Make use of the extra daylight outside. Take a walk outside or even better yet, take a walk to the gym and meet your trainer! We’re waiting for you. You need a plan, and that’s where the experts come in.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time!
