New Year, New You: How to Maintain Fitness Resolutions

kauz kauz

    Three days into 2016 has many Texomans working on their new year's resolution.
     "It's like January 1st, you're brand new," Kinslie Ralston, Fitness Trainer said.
     Ralston believes the start of something new adds to the reasons why people choose to have fitness related resolutions.
     "It's a brand new slate, we can start all over and don't have to worry about what we did in the previous year," Ralston said.
     The fitness trainer at Planet Fitness in Wichita Falls said while having a fitness related goal for the new year is a good idea, those who make them need to be realistic.
     "I would say start small, especially if you're just starting out. Because if you push yourself too hard you're going to definitely regret it and you're going to quit sooner than you would. So just start out with something small that you enjoy doing," Ralston said.
     Starting out with something small is what Burkburnett resident Donna Youngblood has been doing since October.
     Since then she's dropped nearly 35 pounds.
     She said she wanted to work on her health because of her job.
     "I sit in a truck. I drive heavy equipment around all day. I sit in a truck all day. That's not good for me or my health. Plus I have rheumatoid arthritis so it does me good to keep my body in shape," Youngblood said.
     Staying on track has been trying for Youngblood, but she said it's been worth it.
     "It is hard. It is a committment. You're going to have to work around your work schedule, but you are going to have to be committed to it." Youngblood said.
     If you're looking to make a fitness related resolution this year, Ralston said to make sure you start small and find something you enjoy.
     "Let's just say someone enjoys playing basketball but hates running. Basketball is a great way to workout. It gets your blood pumping, and it can be intense sometimes so if you enjoy playing basketball join a co-ed basketball team and use your workouts that way," Ralston said.
     She also suggests if you're just starting out, to try and make a commitment to work out twice a week for at least 30 minutes. Once this becomes habit for you, she said gradually begin to add more days to your workout routine.
     Adding in more fruits and veggies couldn't hurt.
