One of the biggest barriers to improving health and fitness is a lack of motivation. Most people just sit around waiting for motivation to strike like lightning. In some rare cases this might happen, but most of the time we will be left waiting and wondering when we will get our lives together. Often motivation only comes from seeing results. Once we see results, we are then enticed to continue the actions that got those results in the first place. So how do we see results in the first place? One option would be to hire a Personal Trainer.
Starting something new can be overwhelming no matter what it is. A new hobby, sport, job, or even relationship can create a sense of uneasiness in everyone. When you think about it, starting a new workout routine has aspects of all those things! Exercise can be fun, therefore it can be a hobby. Exercise is obviously athletic, therefore could be classified as a sport in some cases. Exercise in some form is vital to your health and well being and should be treated with as much dedication as a new job. And exercise strengthens your relationship with your body and mind. Because of all these aspects of a workout routine, walking into the gym for the first time can be daunting!
The best part of showing up for the University of Louisville Depression Center Conference in November isn't the continuing education credits.

New Year’s resolutions, goals and dreams, oh my! It’s that time of year when people tend to look back on the year reflecting on accomplishments and perhaps goals overlooked … and look to the future with the hope of a fresh start and a new beginning to pursue those unmet ambitions.
Losing weight is typically one of the most popular New Year's resolution every year. Whether that means starting a new exercise routine at the gym or starting in the kitchen (or both!), we can help. We LOVE these recipes, from Dashing Dish, and how she takes the comfort foods you crave and turns them into lower calorie options packed with protein to keep you full. Low on time? No problem! You can make these ahead of time and freeze. You can even use your crockpot for the chicken parmesan recipe. No excuses, keep those New Year's resolutions intact!
