Fit News, January 2021
The new year is a natural time for aspirations, as it brings the promise of new beginnings, and define ourselves, with a fresh start. We shake off the old and leave behind anything that didn’t serve us the previous year.

January means deep winter. We embrace the New Year’s promise of new life and energy. We wear sparkles. We push the idea of our best selves forward into spring.

With the cold weather, snow, frigid temperatures, and a short supply of daylight, it's easy to let your workout routine—and your fitness—slide during the winter months. But with the right gear, a few precautions, a good plan, and a mindful approach to winter weather, you can make it through the dreaded months and keep your fitness training on track.

Healthy and Fit New Year!
