It is an unfortunate fact that the statistics are not behind those beginning their New Year Resolutions to get back in shape. (It doesn’t take a day or a month to gain the weight or get out of shape. It will take more than a day or month to reach a goal). I am here to say that it doesn’t have to be that way! That person sweating it out on the treadmill beside you might be the next success story. That person who might need a little advice on how to use the Smith machine might be on the verge of an amazing fitness journey that will turn him or her into your next trainer. You never know! So, be nice! Try not to get into a huff when you see the parking lot is especially full. Think of all the amazing benefits you get from being fit and active and how much better these new folks will feel by sticking with their new fitness routines!
