Americans #1 New Year’s Resolution: Lose weight and get fit!

Let’s face it, losing weight and getting fit is no picnic or a walk in the park (although that does help). It takes consistent effort and hard work to lose extra weight that has lingered. For many, that weight has taken years to put on, and it doesn’t come off over night (no matter how much we would like it to). Most people that find success in losing weight, do it by utilizing fitness equipment, taking health classes, and by finding adequate help and support.
There are so many avenues to find support to reach your goals. Many of them include: inviting a friend to go to fitness classes regularly with, joining a local group or club and getting involved in fitness. If you like to swim you might consider joining a local master’s swim team or if you enjoy running you may find the support you need by joining a club. If you live in the Davis County, Utah area you may want to meet up on a Saturday morning with the South Davis Road Runners. Many people have found success and support from taking local health classes through schools, fitness centers and hospitals (Free diabetes classes are offered at Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful,Utah every month).
As many of you know I love to teach and offer several classes in the community. I strive to improve and offer new and interesting information each year. I am excited to announce that I will be offering several new classes in the 2009 year including: Indoor Fitness, Weight Loss, Provident Living (include budgeting, gardening and food storage tips) and an ever growing Beginner Triathlon Training Program for Women. The truth is, we all need each other! Without you I have no class to teach or group to help achieve their running goals. Utilize the support you need on your journey to healthy living. I am here to help. Achieve your goals this year – you can do it! Then maybe your 2010 goal might read: Qualify for the World Championship Ironman Triathlon (or not).
Sign-up for the Quarterly Newsletter scheduled to come out in January/February. It will be full of helpful nutrition, health and fitness tips.
