Life Fitness Physical Therapy Catonsville

It’s a New Year and many news resolutions consisted of promises to live fitter, healthier lives. According to data collected by University of Scranton, Journal of Clinical Psychology here are the top 10 New Years resolutions of 2014 (listed from 1-10):

  • Lose weight
  • Be more organized
  • Save Money (spend less)
  • Live life to the fullest
  • Stay fit/ eat healthy
  • Learn something new (and exciting)
  • Quit smoking
  • Help others achieve their dreams
  • Fall in Love
  • Make time for family

More than 45% of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions, yet only 8% of Americans are successful at accomplishing their New Year’s Resolutions. The study also discovered that younger people (20’s and under) are more likely to accomplish New Year’s Resolutions than older adults (50 and over).

How can I succeed at my New Year’s Resolutions?

If one of your New Year goals is living a healthier and happier life, you need to establish a strong support system for your goals. For better physical fitness there’s no better way to succeed than enrolling yourself in a high quality physical fitness program.

Behaviors are learned over time and you can change your behavior for the better by having certified physical therapists right by your side on a weekly basis. Your certified physical therapist will teach how to think of the future as now so that you are more likely to succeed at your life goals.

It’s perfectly normal to want to improve your physical well-being and financial status at any given time. You can lose the weight you want to lose. You can maintain a healthy fitness routine beyond the first weeks of the New Year. To achieve your goals you have to really want to succeed for yourself – no for other people or because it’s what you should do. Most successful people are successful because they identify their values with the goals that want to accomplish. There’s no exception for meeting physical fitness goals.

We will help you make a plan to successfully achieve your fitness goals by getting specific with your demands.

Here some physical workouts you can expect at Life Fitness Physical Therapy:

  • Stretching. It’s a physical activity that can make you feel more alert because stretching makes the body pump more blood to the brain. This can help you wean yourself off of caffeine food and beverages. Stretching also brings more blood flow to your muscles to help improve your flexibility. We can teach you how to safely do spinal twist and neck stretches.
  • Core strengthening workouts to reduce back pains.
