The New Year usually brings new resolutions, particularly where health and fitness is concerned.
However, 80% of people who join a gym in January tend to quit up to five months later, and I think the main reason that people do this is because they invest their hopes for a fitter future in their willpower in setting off on this journey.
In my view, if you are not good at what you are doing in the gym, then you are going to quit. It might take weeks, or possibly months to reach this point, but ultimately you will find that you cannot carry on with a gym programme that brings little reward or satisfaction.
The gym floor can be an intimated place to be. If you are not sure where to go, which machine to use, or how heavy you should lift you are not likely to enjoy the process of being in the environment.
So there is no hope then in setting out on such a resolution in the first place, you would think.
Well, not so, because there is a place within the gym where you can go and find someone that is going to help you move forward, and that place is the fitness class.
