New Year’s Health and Fitness

 January marks the beginning of the New Year – and a new you. Determination to uphold New Year’s resolutions generally fades as the year goes on, but Total Fitness and Health, Circuit Works, and Burn 60 are there to help you to start and to continue to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Burn 60, located at 159 South Barrington Place, offers a unique program to its clientele, ages 14-84. The gym gets its name from its interval-based classes lasting 60 minutes each, including 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training.

Although each class is comprised of 24 people, the gym promises “each workout can be modified to meet our clients’ differing fitness level; whether a client is a beginner, intermediate or advanced fitness enthusiast, our trainers can take them to the next level.â€

The gym is also currently offering a New Year’s Fitness Challenge, Drop 10 with a Friend, which includes “a goodie bag of healthy snacks, 14 days of Shakeology, 14 day meal plan, a live kickoff and finale with workouts at Burn 60 and prizes for all buddies who lose 10 lbs.â€

Burn 60’s advice for those looking to get in shape: “If you have a goal to change your diet and exercise program, then be sure to have someone or something holding you accountable. It’s best to create a goal with a friend, or schedule a workout in advance, or prepay for a class package to hold yourself accountable. It’s harder to let others down than to let yourself down, so set yourself up for success and figure out what will hold you accountable to your goals.â€

Located at 11677 San Vicente Blvd, Circuit Works provides its clients with both group and personal training. The Brentwoo d location is decked with high-end machines, flexible wooden flooring, and video displays demonstrating how to perform each exercise.

Alycia Darby, Director of Employee Development and Training, describes the program, “Each class is a one-hour, full-body workout limited to only 20 clients so that each client may have a personalized experience with their trainer. During the class, clients are guided through 10 resistance stations, cardio work and an ab-workout routine. All the classes are led by certified personal trainers whose mission is to help each client to accomplish their personalized fitness goals.â€

Darby’s tips for New Year’s goals include “the more specific your fitness goal is, the more likely it is that you’ll achieve the goal because you’ll be able to measure your success, communicate your needs and remain on a focused path. Instead of saying you want to “look great†consider what that means to you in terms of measurements, size, or tone. Be specific in creating your goal; for example: Lose 15 lbs by April 1st or do 6 pull-ups in a row by February 1st.â€

For individual attention, check out Total Fitness and Health, a personal training company run out of Velocity Sports Club, 11611 San Vicente Boulevard. Combining semi-private training with nutrition coaching, Chris Abbott explains, “It’s never easy going at something solo; the semi-private feel helps make things more comfortable for everyone.â€

Abbott believes change is hard, and is best done by starting simple and small. For instance, Abbott explains, “when you’re starting something new for the first time, you want to see success early and often so as to fuel your motivation as time goes on.â€

For New Year’s resolutions, he suggests: “Rather than make a goal to totally revamp your diet and start working out for an hour 5 days a week, simply say “I’m going to have vegetables with every meal†and “I’m going to make it a point to exercise for at least 20 minutes 3 days a week.†Abbot emphasizes, “Simplicity is the key to success; don’t over complicate things.â€
