I <3 Resolutioners

imagesJanuary at gyms = my favorite time of year. No joke. And it has nothing to do with workout apparel (okay, maybe a little).

Resolutioners help to break up my grind – the week-after-week, month-after-month, year-after-year, gym grind that typically contains no fresh starts or earth-shattering new goals for me.

I am okay being elbow-to-elbow with you or waiting an extra minute for the equipment that you are using. You know why? Your fresh start is my fresh start. Your excitement is my excitement. I enjoy watching your early strength gains, your longer and longer runs on the treadmill, your smiles of accomplishment, your transforming bodies.

I hope you stick around. I hope you become more healthy. I hope you grow to love the gym as much as I do. (And, I hope you learn what is appropriate and what is not appropriate to wear to the gym.)

Thanks, Sarah!

And…I LOVED this comment on a sign at my gym asking, “What will your legacy be?”

Excuse me, Sir. Is your New Year’s resolution to exercise more in jeans?

The “+ More” = Crowded Gyms in January

Regular and consistent gym-goers complain about the surge of new people in gyms in January.

Not me. I LOVE the January crowd.  New faces, resolution excitement, all the “new beginning” vibes. I am hoping that by showing these newbies an occasional smile and some encouragement, a few will stick around, become more healthy, and begin to love the gym as much as I do.
