Gold's Gym Reveals the Top Ten 'Fail Proof' Secrets to Making Your Fitness Resolutions a Reality in 2010
Date:12/30/2009

DALLAS, Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- With a new year just around the corner, the promise of a new "you" is taking shape in the minds of millions of Americans that are determined to stick with their New Year's Resolution goals.

To give the nation the ammunition it needs to kick the New Year off right, Gold's Gym, the world's leading authority on health and fitness, has consulted with leading fitness experts and celebrity trainers to issue the "Top Ten List of 'Fail Proof' Resolution Tips" to avoid fitness failure in the year ahead. In addition, the company is opening its doors to the public from January 1st through January 3rd and offering a free interactive "Resolution Builder" that provides customized workouts and tips based on individual fitness experience and goals.

"Every year, millions of people make a pledge to get fit in the New Year," said Lisa Zoellner, Chief Marketing Officer of Gold's Gym International. "Yet despite their best efforts, most get sidetracked because they don't have a fail proof action plan in place. With obesity rates and health care costs rising at an alarming rate, we wanted to arm Americans with the information and understanding needed to ensure that they reach and maintain their fitness goals. By consulting with the experts on the Gold's Gym Fitness Institute, we have put together the most comprehensive list of tips, taking 'failure' out of the nation's vocabulary."

The following "Top Ten List of 'Fail Proof' Resolution Tips" was created through a collaboration with experts on the world-renowned Gold's Gym Fitness Institute including prominent sports psychologist, Dr. Belisa Vranich and leading celebrity trainers, Mike Ryan and Adam Friedman.

The Top Ten List of "Fail Proof" Resolution Tips

  1. Visualize your end result. Create a strong image in your mind of what you want to look and feel like when you reach your goals. Remember it throughout the process.
  2. Get a fitness assessment. It's critical to know your starting point and learn your strengths and weaknesses. Going forward, continue to get a fitness reassessment every 8-12 weeks to track your progress.
  3. A goal without a plan is only a wish. Stop wishing you were in great shape and start mapping out a concrete plan to get there. The Gold's Gym "Resolution Builder" can help here.
  4. Set small achievable goals that build momentum. While long term goals are important, short term goals give you mini successes throughout your journey to get in shape.
  5. Create a schedule to reinforce consistency.
  6. Keep a journal of your exercise and dietary intake on a daily basis to be present with the day-to-day process.
  7. Change up your workout routine every 4-6 weeks. Over time, your muscles will adapt to a fitness routine. This is why it is important to mix up your workout and strive for consistent progression in your program in a way that continues to challenge your body.
  8. Troubleshoot your excuses. How would your friends respond to your excuses? Write these excuses down. You will be surprised at how impactful it can be to see your excuses written out!
  9. Tell all of your friends your goals. This creates a support system as well as an accountability that will make you less likely to back out on working out.
  10. Be patient with seeing results.

In addition to the tips above, consumers can visit www.goldsgym.com and www.facebook.com/goldsgym throughout the month of January to use the company's interactive "Resolution Builder." This web based application allows consumers to enter personalized information about their fitness goals and experience, and then provides them with a free road map to success. This includes personalized workout routines and fitness tips.

Americans can also take advantage of a free workout by showing up at any participating Gold's Gym between Friday, January 1st and Sunday, January 3rd (Limit one workout per customer, must be local resident with identification). Gold's Gym trainers and nutrition experts will be on-hand to guide guests through the "fail proof" tips and provide them with a free fitness consultation.
