What a year it’s been!
The world changed a lot in 2020, and so did the fitness industry.
As the year draws to a close, we’d like to say thank you to everyone who pivoted with us. We had to adapt fast to make sure our clients always got what they needed in a chaotic time, and we know all our members are dealing with life and job stress related to the pandemic. But your commitment to health and fitness continually inspires us.
It would be very easy to stop working out right now or to reach for comfort foods every single day. But our members have repeatedly demonstrated that a healthy lifestyle can’t be derailed.
Sure, you might have missed a workout because you had to be home with two sick kids. Or maybe you hit the drive-thru after an insane day when you literally didn’t have a second to spare. But those were just off days, and you got back on track.
Your will power and resilience fuel us, and we’ve spent most of 2020 upgrading our business so we can give you the very best service every single day.
That won’t change as the calendar rolls over into 2020. Whatever the New Year brings, we’re ready for it, and you can count on us to continue to be a lighthouse for you. The last year was the toughest one in the history of the fitness industry, but we made it through, and the fight only made us better. We’ll continue to improve every day in 2021.
Thank you so much for your dedication and confidence in us. We can’t wait to hit 2021 with momentum!
Holiday Eating Tips
With Thanksgiving behind us and the December holidays ahead, we’ll give you a few tips you can use to stay on track with nutrition.
1. On days when you’ll crush a huge family feast, eat a bit lighter earlier in the day, then don’t sweat a few extra bites at the big meal. It’s more important to be generally consistent with healthy eating than absolutely rigid at all times.
2. Eat well around the epic meals. If you know you have three big meals planned over the next weeks, try to balance them with healthy, nutritious meals on the “off days.” Eat lots of veggies and lean cuts of meat, and try to limit sugary snacks that are always around at this time of year.
3. Be moderate with alcohol—especially sugary drinks. It can be easy to fall into a chair by the fire and guzzle delicious beverages, but binge drinking and overeating can do some damage. Enjoy yourself in moderation. Need motivation to do so? Schedule a workout for the next morning and you’ll have a reason to keep the booze in check.
4. Make veggies a part of the big meals! You can absolutely enjoy the best treats of the season, but so many healthy options are truly delicious. If there’s at least one healthy item on the table, that’s a huge win. Look up some recipes and perhaps you’ll discover a nutritious dish that will be a new holiday favorite.
All the Best for 2021!
