How to achieve your Fitness New Year’s Resolution | Cenegenics

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.

Jim Rohn

As we look ahead to the new year, many of us begin planning our resolutions for the New Year. In particular, most people create a list of personal endeavors geared towards improvement in the realm of health and wellness. If your resolutions include focusing on any aspect of your health this year, Cenegenics can help. And, on the brink of an entirely new decade, there’s perhaps no better time to make the commitment to yourself than first day of the year. Find your resolution(s) from the list below and discover how we can help you stay on track all year long.

What Are Your New Year’s Resolutions for Health & Wellness?

Perhaps you already have a concrete idea of what you’d like to improve this year, or maybe you have some general notions but haven’t yet put them into words. In either case, it may be helpful to look at some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions below. While your goals should always be your own, this list can provide some further inspiration for focusing on any areas in your life that may need a little more attention.

Common Personal Resolutions for the New Year

Although the resolutions made at the start of a new year are endless, the most popular resolutions include getting in shape, losing weight, eating healthier, kicking bad habits and living life to the fullest.

Surprisingly, over 49.1% of adults in the U.S. attempted to lose weight last year. One of the keys to accomplishing your resolution is making sure to set realistic expectations. Cenegenics is here to help you set realistic goals and achieve them. Below are the common resolutions, as well as some motivating benefits for each.

Get In Shape

It should come as no surprise that exercise or staying fit and healthy, is the single most popular New Year’s resolution. [1] Drive past any gym parking lot in early January and you’re likely to see that if you have this goal, you’re in good company. And, this resolution is certainly deserving of its top spot because of its benefits in:

Without rival, the benefits of regular exercise span far and wide. [2]

Lose Weight

Achieving a healthier body weight is another common goal among resolution setters. Of course, while many people may seek weight loss as a means of achieving a physique they’re more confident in, there are plenty of health-related reasons to maintain a healthy weight.

For instance, you can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some forms of cancer, while also optimizing energy levels and immune system functionality. [3] The key term here, however, is long-term weight management; in other words, not simply striving for a number on the scale before by a specific date.

Eat Healthier

Eating healthy often goes hand-in-hand with losing weight and exercising regularly. As it should – it’s impossible to “out-exercise” a poor diet, and no matter how much or how little exercise you do, your eating habits will always have a direct impact on your health. To function its best, your body needs essential nutrients like healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, and protein from high-quality sources. The trouble is that many people jump into extremely restrictive, unsustainable diets which promise quick results but fail to align with their preferences, lifestyle, and even nutritional needs.

Kick Bad Habits

The start of the New Year is an extremely popular time for smoking cessation and abstaining from alcohol. There’s a reason “Dry January” has become so popular in recent years: recognizing a need to cut back and “reset” after the indulgent holiday seasons, many people take a break from booze altogether throughout the month. If quitting smoking or alcohol or simply reducing your consumption is on your list this year, know that you’re making some of the best choices you can to improve your health.

Enjoy Life to the Fullest

This resolution will look different for everyone, but it remains the third-most popular goal among resolution setters. [4] For some people, living life to the fullest may mean trying new activities and traveling more. For others, it could encompass spending more time with loved ones and giving back to the community.

For many individuals, it’s a little bit of all that. Yet, in order to live your life to the fullest, you must also be in good health. After all, soaking up each moment out of every day means enjoying a rewarding quality of life, maintaining strong cognitive health, and staying disease-free. 

How Cenegenics Will Help You Achieve Your New Year's Resolutions - In Conclusion

No matter which of the above resolutions are on your list this year – and perhaps they all are – Cenegenics can help you stay committed to them not just through early part of a new year, but for a lifetime. Our team is made up of experienced physicians, along with fitness and nutrition experts, who understand that January 1st provides the opportunity time to hit “reset” and redirect your focus on your health.

Yet, we also know that health optimization is a lifelong endeavor, which is why we give you the tools, resources, and support you need to pursue wellness not just now, but well into the future.

Each of our programs begins with an initial consultation, in which you’ll discuss your personal goals and any health concerns with one of our experts. Then, you’ll receive the Elite Health Evaluation, which reveals your current biomarkers.

The information from your evaluation acts as a roadmap for our physicians, who will provide you with detailed information needed to make the best wellness choices for your unique needs and desired outcomes.

For instance, we’ll be able to detect whether issues like hormone imbalances or other underlying issues could have been holding you back from achieving your goals in the past, and we’ll help you through every step of getting on the right track.

From specific dietary recommendations to exercise programs and personalized nutraceutical prescriptions (where clinically indicated), you’ll have a full scope of powerful, health-boosting age-management tools in your arsenal.

In other words, we eliminate the guesswork of what it takes to truly achieve – and just as importantly, maintain – the following health goals.

Boosted Energy

Since a decline in energy can be a result of many things, our comprehensive approach and testing looks at diet, exercise, hormonal balance, quality sleep, and possible vitamin and mineral deficiencies, to quickly and accurately uncover whatever causative agent may be responsible for your decline in energy.  Our patients report an increase in energy as one of the first things they notice when on our Elite Health program.

Long-Term Weight Management

Long-term weight management – Recent studies show Cenegenics patients reflect an average decrease in body fat percentage of 30%!

Improved Libido

Oftentimes, the cause of low libido is easily identifiable.  Cenegenics treats a broad range of health factors with proven solutions necessary for optimizing overall health for improved sexual desire.

Strong Cognitive Function

Most people don’t realize the many factors that affect our cognitive function and health.  Our proactive approach not only greatly reverse a decline in cognitive function but can alleviate the factors that greatly impact our cognitive health as we age. 

Feeling Your Best No Matter What Your Age

No two people age the same, and the symptoms many people associate with aging, (aches and pains, loss of muscle tone, decline in memory, etc.), are often approached with the attitude that not much can be done about it.  This is absolutely not true!

We know that a youthful feeling isn’t necessarily about a number. You can take control of your aging process, no matter what that looks like for you, and look and feel better than you ever thought possible.

Not only will you know exactly what you need to do to make the progress you’re hoping for, but you’ll receive personalized attention and support from our clinical team whenever you need it. If you’re ready to start pursuing meaningful resolutions for the New Year, turn to your nearest Cenegenics location to find out more about how we can help.
