Achieve Your Fitness Goals In 2021
2020 was one of the most difficult years in recent memory. Our usual lives screeched to a halt since the COVID-19 pandemic and have been slow to recover ever since.
Understandably, many people want to start 2021 with a bang. They want this year to be the year that they finally achieve their fitness goals and change their lives for the better.
It is all too common for people to make “losing weight” their new year’s resolution only to give up after a month. Part of the reason most people give up is the objective itself, to lose weight or lose fat.
There isn’t anything inherently wrong with this goal, but it is not habitual. We think a better, more long lasting goal would be to “make fitness permanently part of my lifestyle in 2021.”
Shedding 10 pounds is fantastic but ultimately does nothing if you gain it back shortly afterwards. For the weight loss to stay permanent, you need a lifestyle change. You need your newly formed positive habits to become embedded in your body and brain. In addition, you need to put yourself in a position that gives you all the tools you need to succeed.
Going to a gym to lift weights is great for building muscle, but it takes more than that to change your lifestyle and get fit.
We understand the struggle. That’s why O Athletik offers a variety of fitness classes for you to choose from that each target a different component of your new fitness lifestyle.
Want to improve cardiovascular health and increase strength? Alpha Strong is the class for you.
Are building abs high on your list of new year’s priorities? We have a 15 minute class, Cut2Core, for people who want to strengthen their core in a fast and efficient way.
Maybe you want to start incorporating self-defense as part of your new fitness lifestyle? We have a dozen MMA, Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and Kick-Boxing classes taught by some of the best instructors in Houston.
O Athletik also has a state-of-the-art weight room, outdoor turf hill, underwater treadmills, and indoor turf field to provide you with everything you need to achieve your 2021 goals in one convenient location.
Remember what we said earlier about making these changes to your lifestyle permanent? You don’t want to have 3 different memberships to 3 different gyms just so that you have options. Not only will that be more expensive, but you’ll be less likely to make your new fitness routine a lifestyle if you’re always on the move.
At O Athletik, we also focus on your longevity. Yes, we want 2021 to be the year you achieve your fitness goals, but we also want to make sure your body is prepared to do the same in 2022, 2023, and so on.
Do not underestimate the role recovery plays in increasing longevity. It may not be as exciting as lifting weights or participating in classes, but it is far more important.
In fact, we have entire classes dedicated to recovery. We also have a sauna in both locker rooms that are open for use, as well as a steam room.
At O Athletik, it’s all about accessibility for our members. We are constantly adding more classes and equipment to continue providing as many training options as possible.
