One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to loose weight. A well-planned diet and exercise program can help you accomplish this goal, but what if you get hurt? Will you have to throw in the towel? Many people think if they just go to the gym and work out as hard as they can for “x” amount of time, burn “x” number of calories, then they’ll lose weight, fit into their favorite pair of jeans, and look and feel amazing. However, anytime you start an exercise program, it needs to be carefully planned and customized for YOUR body, or you’re risking an injury. For the lucky, an injury could result in just a couple of days of rest. But what if it happens again? What if the pain remains? You might find yourself asking, “What’s the point in exercising if I always hurt afterward? I can’t work out as hard or as long as I want to, so why work out at all? What if I hurt myself again?” For many, it’s enough to give up on their New Year’s resolution and sadly buy the next size jeans.
Joseph Pilates said, “Physical fitness in the first requisite of happiness.” Being active and healthy is important not only for our physical health, but also for our mental well-being. I want to help you achieve whatever goal you might have for this New Year in a SAFE way. That starts with a full body movement analysis to see if you have ANY faulty movement patterns that would set you up for injury and sabotage your New Year’s resolution. While it’s impossible to guarantee total injury prevention, it’s important to be proactive and do all you can to minimize your risk.
