The Madness Behind The Women’s Fitness Craze

December 7

Certain times of the year we seem motivated to begin a fitness program. After the holidays is one time, but the other time of the year is in the late spring. As we shed our winter clothing, it becomes obvious that we also need to shed some pounds too. January and May are some of the busiest months for gym memberships, but women’s fitness should be an all year ‘round event, not a twice a year craze.

After the first of the year, women like to start the New Year off by promising to get in shape. The overindulgence of the holidays usually has us feeling like we need to pay special attention to our ever-increasing waistline. Although some women may not have the tendency to gain weight during this time, they may have taken a short break from fitness just to get through the holidays. The move from one calendar year to another is a great motivator to the mind to make healthy lifestyle changes.

However, many New Year’s resolutions end before they even begin. We find ourselves inundated with responsibilities and habits that haven’t changed from the year before and whatever was keeping us from meeting our fitness goals from the previous year are still with us the following year. It takes more than a calendar to keep us motivated to stick to our fitness goals.

There’s certainly a type of madness behind the fitness craze. Sometimes the madness works to our advantage, but many times it fails us because it is not plausible in our everyday lives. Choosing a fitness plan that you can live by is one of the best ways to ensure you stick to your plan and are able to meet your goals.

This trilogy of fitness is a fantastic way to help you lose weight and get in shape. Along with the diet, exercise and journal, Fitness4Her offers support with helpful tips, blogs and interesting articles that share the fitness craze to motivate all women to make intelligent changes for a healthier and happier lifestyle.

  1. The gym I work at tracks our attendance numbers for fitness classes through the year. As you can imagine numbers skyrocket in January when students come back for spring semester. Attendance is so high we have to turn people away for the first few months, but we see a dramatic decline a few weeks in, typically around the Superbowl. I wish I could help encourage everyone to keep coming, not just for their resolutions, for their own health benefit!

  3. Too many people bounce between from all out exercise to none at all. Finding a happy medium for the average person is the real challenge. They need to incorporate healthy eating and exercise as part of their lifestyle. I believe that setting moderate exercise goals that you can stick to for the long haul work best.
