Realistic Resolutions
How many times have you set a goal to finally lose the weight, get stronger, reduce your blood pressure, get more sleep, and save more money? How many times have you started out strong in January, and by March, found yourself unmotivated and back to your old habits? Well, you are not alone. Only 8% of people who make New Year's Resolutions keep them. How can you be a part of this elite group of seemingly uber-dedicated, highly-motivated, super-human individuals? It's not about will power or having more time. It is about setting small goals that are attainable, realistic and working at them daily. Here are some considerations!

1.   Pick the most important thing that you would like to improve. If it is losing weight, then set that as your goal.

2.    Write it down. Write down how much you weigh now and how much you want to weigh this time next year. You have to know where you are starting in order to know where you want to go. You can simply weigh at home or you can get an InBody assessment for a more in depth body composition assessment.
3.   Formulate a plan. How will you get there? This is the time to take advantage of everything that we have to offer at LIFT. You might choose to join LIFT Weight Management, utilize the services of a personal trainer, take group fitness classes, participate in small group training sessions, consult the dietitian, or train for a 5K. You might choose to use all of these resources!

4.   Get an accountability partner. Whether it is your personal trainer, your health coach, a support group, your best friend, or a family member. Have someone who will encourage you and support your efforts.
5.   Measure and reassess along the way. Track your exercise sessions and your nutrition. You can use an app, pen and paper, MyZone, or a combination. Weigh once per week. Get an InBody Assessment once a month. Don't forget to track your sleep. Eating nutritious foods and moving more is only part of the equation. You have to recover. Adequate sleep is absolutely necessary!
6.   Reward yourself along the way as you make progress with new workout attire, a movie, or a massage. Celebrate the small achievements. If you lose a pound, reward yourself. You worked hard for it! If you slip a little, forgive yourself and get back on track. It will happen. You just have to move forward.
7.   Most important, enjoy the process!  Make those things that have helped you achieve your goals lifelong habits.
Remember that the New Year is the time to reflect on the past year and the behaviors that created the daily habits that either improve your health or worsen your health. This is the time to make the promise to yourself to start making those positive lifestyle changes that are going to help you become healthier and happier. Remember that change comes by working toward it, one step at a time. By making your resolutions realistic, there is a greater chance that you will still be going strong throughout the year and incorporating healthier behaviors into your everyday life.

Best to you and know that every team member at LIFT is here to support you in 2019!

January is Healthy Resolutions Month
It is a new year, and that means it's time for a new you! Most people make their midnight toast on New Year's Eve with a resolution in mind. For some people it's about better household budgeting, for others it's quitting smoking, and for even more, it's losing the weight they may have put on over the past year. Everyone faces their own personal challenges, and January is the perfect time to begin making changes to overcome them.
Some people's challenges are more daunting than others, and it can be disappointing when we abandon our resolutions after only a few weeks. No matter what you have resolved to do this year, it is always best to approach it with a well-structured and well-thought-out plan made up of a series of smaller achievable goals.
" The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."- Lao Tzu
Any problem can look insurmountable as a whole, but when broken down into small and manageable steps, you are much more likely to be successful and feel a sense of encouragement and accomplishment as you progress. That is the approach we take in the HMR® Program.
If you have resolved to get healthier or lose some weight this year, contact the weight loss experts at LIFT Wellness Center! You can develop a personalized plan that fits into your busy life and still benefit from the accountability and structure needed to keep you on track.

Pilates Reformers

LIFT is offering Pilates Reformer sessions!  This style of Pilates, an exercise discipline invented by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s, is performed on a Pilates machine known as the Reformer.  By adding the Pilates Reformer into your exercise routine you will challenge your core strength while gaining better flexibility.  Some exercises are performed face up, face down or in side-lying positions.  Others start from a seated position.  The resistance from the reformer can add extra challenge or extra support in these positions for hundreds of exercises!  You can expect an overall more balanced musculoskeletal system from working on the Pilates Reformer.  This discipline is suitable for a wide-ranging demographic, including participants looking to improve low back pain to the athletes who want to gain more flexibility and mobility!  See the front desk for more information.   

Group Exercise

Equipment  Etiquette
Please help us keep all equipment in working order by treating it like it's your own.

Things to know:
  • The sauna is not a steam room...pouring excessive amounts of water over the rocks causes the rocks to crumble. Pouring more than half a ladle of water over the rocks can cause rocks to crumble, thus shutting down the sauna until repairs are made.

Steam Room:
  • The steam room has an emergency shut off button (red). This is to shut down the steam room in case of emergencies. It does not produce more steam.

Exercise Equipment:  
  • It is important to wear proper workout attire while using equipment.
  • Blue jeans can cause upholstery to wear down prematurely.
  • Hard sole shoes can cause cardio equipment and gym floor to wear out early as well. 
  • Do not drop or bang weights together. Dumbbells are not made to be dropped. You will get a better eccentric contraction by lowering the weights under control. If you have to drop the weight, chances are the weight is too heavy. Avoid clanging of weights in the pin selected equipment area. You should always keep resistance on the muscle during each rep. Meaning the weights should not touch until you are finished with a full set.

  • It is important to wash all oils/perfumes/dirt from body prior to entering our pools. If wearing a shirt or shorts...please make sure it is of dry-fit material.
  • Cotton can cause clogging of the filter system.

  • Wall balls/medicine balls/basketballs are not slam balls. Please use the blue slam balls for slamming.
  • Basketballs are for basketball only. Do not slam, kick, or throw against brick wall.
  • No dunking/hanging on the rims/climbing nets.
Following these recommendations will help us keep LIFT Wellness Center and our equipment in excellent working condition.
Thank you for helping us help you.

This January, every check-in at LIFT Wellness Center will help provide a life-changing surgery to a child in need! We're working with Causely and Watsi to make it happen. You can add #changealife when you check in to promote the cause. For more information about this month's charity, check out

P.S. If you haven't heard of Sweat Angels, here's how it works... Sweat Angels makes a donation to a great cause every time our members check-in on Facebook. Thousands of gyms use Sweat Angels, and that's why they're able to make such a large impact each month. If you need some help checking in on Facebook, just stop by the front desk and we'll show you how!

We will be hosting our annual MyZone Challenge February 11th-April 8th. 
More details to come!
