Exercise is a Journey, Not a Destination

When you train with one of our professionals you get access to every other discipline. Variety is the key. For those outside the NYC area, try one of our SKYPE WORKOUTS! It’s the next best thing to being there. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
We also have bootcamps in neighborhoods ranging from Tribeca to the Upper West Side and many NYC neighborhoods in between, with disciplines varying from prenatal to postpartum stroller to open bootcamps.
When you train with one of our professionals you get access to every other discipline. Variety is the key, after engaging in the same discipline over a sustained amount of time your body stars to plateau and the exercise loses its overall impact. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
We’ve all heard it before, and yes it is contrived, clichéd, and hackneyed. However, the reason you keep hearing this is because it is true. The “Journey not a Destination” philosophy has been with us much longer than fitness has, and when undertaking fitness as a discipline, this philosophy holds true.
NYC Personal Training, Real Advice from a Professional:
Like any other life altering discipline that an individual takes on it should be looked at as a journey, and fitness is no exception.
When fitness is done the right way it should be something that becomes part of the rest of your life. If you are looking for life long success, then it would stand to reason that fitness should be life long.
While every individual should have his or her short term goals everyone needs to have overall health and wellness as a life long goal.
Let’s be honest, most people get into shape just for that wedding, reunion or vacation. It’s good to have a focus, but more times than not once those events are over or once that short term goal is realized, most tend to fall off the wagon.
What’s the sense of putting in all of that hard work and dedication if it’s all going to be over in a couple of months? Why not take that discipline with you through out the rest of your life.
Take comfort and be proud that you have accomplished your short term goal but do not lose sight of the journey.
Remember those moments along the way that got you to where you are now.
Remember the fun you had, how great you looked, and more importantly how glorious you felt when you were done.
Remember the journey, half the fun is getting there.
