Springtime And Fresh Habits Go Hand-in-Hand

Time for Spring Cleaning 

Springtime is a  favorite time of the year.  The trees are bursting with new leaves; flowers are beginning to bud.  The cold dreary days of winter have been replaced with warmer, sunny days.

 Spring is a time for renewal…for fresh starts. It is an opportunity to reassess current goals. Examine habits that no longer serve you well and replace them with habits that are positive.  Here are a few suggestions…

 Eat Healthier. Fresh veggies will soon be arriving at the farmer’s market and grocery stores.  Commit to eating one new veggie and fruit each week.  Plant a veggie garden.  Try a new healthy recipe.

 Get Active.  Exercise. If you have not made exercise a priority, start by adding 15 minutes of activity in your day. Park as far away from your destination as possible, keep a pair of comfortable shoes in your car for that spontaneous walk.  If you have been thinking about taking that new exercise class at the gym, try it.

 Eliminate Stress. Take some time to evaluate what causes the stress in your life.  There are some things you have no control over…so let them go.  Identify the items you have control over and establish a plan to fix them.  Do you need to pay more attention to your finances, or your relationships?  Enroll in a class; take up a hobby that you have talked about for years.

Be kind to yourself.  Let go of the self- defeating attitude.  Let go of guilt from past mistakes. Take time and enjoy the roses that will soon be in full bloom….

Gold’s Gym in Douglasville, GA and Austell GA have a team of nationally certified Personal Trainers to help you set and achieve your fitness and healthy lifestyle goals.

More Love..Less Handles! Gold’s Gym Couples Get Fit!

Whether you’re on your second date or celebrating your 22nd anniversary, one thing is true: Relationships require work. But not necessarily the kind you might expect. As it turns out, couples that exercise together strengthen more than their muscles; they also strengthen their romantic connection. (If your spouse still needs to join the gym, you should know that  Gold’s Gym offers household add-on deals that let your spouse sign up at a significantly reduced monthly rate.)

“Your endorphin and pheromone levels are at their highest after a session at the gym,” says Gold’s Gym Fitness Institute member Belisa Vranich, a clinical psychologist and author of Get a Grip: Your Two-Week Mental Makeover. These are the feel-good hormones linked to arousal and attraction—and they can have a powerful effect on you and your partner: “They automatically make you like the person you’re with even more, regardless of whether you’re a happy new couple or on the brink of a breakup,” she says.

Creating Exercise Habits with Gold’s Gym Group Fitness

The beginning of the year is often a time when many people commit to a New Year’s resolution. Research indicates that approximately 45% of the population commits to at least one resolution but of those that do, the vast majority have abandoned it by Valentine’s Day.

How do we become one of the fitness faithful?  Check out the following list to help create positive fitness habits.

 

Find Something You Enjoy!  People think that fitness has to be hard, uncomfortable, and even boring.  Group Fitness have proven to be an enticing form of exercise.  The music, instructor, and the group setting can create a form of escape,  a positive and welcoming experience.  Initially, many people gravitate toward exercise equipment because its simple and accessible.  But exercise adherence becomes harder to maintain because there is no emotional attachment to a machine.  Why?  It is because this form of exercise requires large amounts of intrinsic self-motivation to stay committed.  With Group Fitness, a great portion of the motivation is driven by the external environment.

Exercise  in a Group with Another Person.  Exercise retention is improved when exercising in a group and/or with another person.  Group Fitness is a social atmosphere.  A type of pack energy exists that draws you in, motivates you, and builds loyalty between you and your fellow exerciser.  Plus, a positive exercise experience will keep you coming back for more – helping you keep your committment.

Put the spark back into your sex life!

Now I’m not trying to get personal here, but are you too tired to have sex? Or feeling too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy? Don’t like the way you look naked?  Physical activity to the rescue. Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. But there’s more to it than that. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women, and men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don’t exercise — especially as they get older.

Gold’s Gym has great membership plans for families!  Check us out today!
