A new year is finally here, and many people will embark on a new health and fitness regimen. Unfortunately, a large percentage will not keep these resolutions. But you can make great progress with fitness by following just a few key points. Most important: Do something you enjoy! If you hate running, then you will dread your workout every time, eventually stop going, feel guilty for not going, and be back at square one.

Visualize your workout goals. Make sure that you are making changes for yourself, not for anyone else. Find motivational and inspirational quotes, pictures, and mantras to give you that extra push. Here are a few of my favorite sayings: “Get comfortable with being uncomfortable”; “There are no shortcuts to any place worth going”; and “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Notice a pattern? There is hard work involved, but you only get one body, so take care of it!
