Lose weight. Lean out. Eat clean. Train dirty.
Same sh*t, different year.
It's that time of year... We dust off last year's goals to give it another go. Sometimes we fail to realize that if we don't succeed time & time again, it might be time to change the plan, not the goal. At The P.E. Club, we're here to keep you on track and be the support system you need when it comes to those difficult diet and lifestyle changes.
That being said, our talented team of trainers and instructors are not only the the best motivators, but setting the bar high for themselves, as well. We asked our team what they aim to resolve in the new year to ensure a productive & successful 2017.
Here are our 2017 New Year's Resolutions!
"This year, I'd like to financially manage myself better - this includes aiming to track my budget monthly and establish more of a saving plan by charting and using wiser judgement on spending. I also want to focus on healing my injuries - from resting my body to rehabbing properly in order to heal my pain so I can work better. Lastly, I hope to not let the NYC madness win! When life gets hectic or stressful, I want to practice meditation and peel back on my emotional reaction. I'm hoping to navigate stressful situations with more poise instead of succumbing to negativity."
-Kayley Stevens, Instructor
"My New Year's Resolution is to take more risks and do more things that scare me on a regular basis! It's so easy to get stuck in a daily routine and stick to what feels safe-I want to say "yes" to more things outside my comfort zone in 2017!"
-Miriam Fried, Trainer
"First, I want to get a yoga certification so I can tap into a deeper strength, explore personal challenges and find balance in my fitness routine. In contrast, I also want to find time to indulge and enjoy being a human. Life isn't only about working, working out and always being responsible... I'm still figuring out how to do this!!"
-Nedra Lopez, Owner, Trainer & Instructor
"This year, I want to make more time for myself. I am starting to accomplish things I want in my career but that can sometimes come with a price (personal sanity!). 2017 I will start to focus more on time for fun. When I'm not at work, I'm not going to let my mind still be filled with stress that I may be having about a work situation. I will make sure I take my free time to really go out and enjoy myself instead of just staying home on the couch. (Although that is sometimes needed as well!)"
-Melody Domfort, Instructor
"This year, I want to spend more quality time with my husband. Whether it is an adventure around the city or something so simple as snuggling on the couch catching up on our stories, I want to be more present. I also really want to meal plan in a more efficient way! I tend to decide to be creative for dinner so late in the day that by the time I make the list, go grocery shopping, and make the meal it's already late. Having a 5:45am wake up call after an evening of late night eating doesn't go very well together. I plan on organizing my recipes and shopping lists on Sunday and either going shopping on Sunday or Monday for the week. Good cooking is all in the shopping. Lastly, I want to do workouts that make me feel good. I have had way too many injuries in my life to ignore my body. I know what makes me feel good and look great so I'd like to continue with that regiment."
-Morgana Mauney, Instructor
"I want to commit to a strong workout program and in turn be ready for the NYC marathon."
-Allie Ricardi, Trainer
"My new year's resolution is to be more present in everything I do. I have very big goals and dreams, and too often I over exhaust myself with the "go-go-go" mentality, unnecessary stress + over planning which leads to unhappiness & frustration when things don't go the way I had hoped. I plan on living in the moment, listen to my body more, trust my intuition and enjoy life's blessings. This year, I want to keep it simple, and that just takes some commitment to being present."
-Katy Kauffman, Creative Director & Instructor
"I want to focus on better time management, more positive self body talk, more dedication to my career + more dedication to my fitness goals."
-Mayra Rodriguez, Office Manager
