Dec 30th – Aaron & Eleni discuss resolutions vs goals, come up with Tabata workout #4 for the week and share tips on good sit ups. “Engage your pelvic floor” gets a laugh even though it was meant to be serious. And encouragement is given toward having a safe and healthy New Year celebration.

LISTEN NOW

Tabata 20/10 workout presented by Aaron today… Air Squats, Pull Ups, Push Ups and Sit Ups. (each done for 20 seconds with a 10 second rest repeat the series once)

Set SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely) Goals this year throughout the year instead of a resolutions. Resolutions tend to fall apart after a week or so because they typically go like this…. “I will lose weight this year”. Try a SMART goal instead. “I will lose 2 lbs a week by reducing  my portions sizes and eliminating processed foods while exercising 4 days a week. I will weigh myself in 4 weeks and have lost 8 pounds and then set a new goal”.  Now get more specific by defining the food intake and workout schedule.

Remember although the New Year is a great time to check in and get serious about our goals we should be evaluating and setting goals all year long!
