Here’s the No-Sweat Way to Kickstart Your “I Gotta Get Back to the Gym”

January 20, 2022

We’re already into January, and the big question is: how are your resolutions doing? For many of us, those resolutions include shedding some pounds, eating more healthfully, and becoming more physically fit. A lot more easily said than done, of course, but the potential benefits are considerable: more energy, a more positive mood, and a more attractive, revitalized look.

Many people (and hey, we’ve all been there) never get their resolutions out of the starting gate – but you don’t have to be one of them! Joining a gym can be a great way to get your butt in gear (literally!) and get the supervision, guidance, and motivation you need to stay the course.

Fortunately, the Hudson Valley abounds in excellent gym options, as detailed below. Most gyms offer the basics: weights, exercise bikes, treadmills, and various classes for folks at every level of their fitness journey. Others specialize in more specific schools of fitness, such as yoga, Pilates, Cross-Fitness, and even Pole Dancing.

To stay committed to your fitness journey, consider signing up for a gym membership. Exercising at a gym diversifies your workout options and you can opt for a personal trainer for extra motivation. Almost all of these Hudson Valley gyms offer a free introductory tour, and many will offer a day pass so you can kick the tires. They will be happy to answer all your questions, whether in person or over the phone.

So there, we made it easy for you. And, to quote a famous sneaker company, “Just do it!”
