Personal Trainer Krystal DeBaker suggests that in January you:
Try a Yoga Class
Workout fads come and go, but virtually no other exercise program is as enduring as yoga. It's been around for more than 5,000 years.
Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles: it's a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation.
Razor offers a range of yoga classes with a variety of instructors and different levels of intensity. Try one today!
It's that time of year again -- time to challenge yourself with some New Year's resolutions. Many people resolve to begin an exercise program, only to abandon it before Easter.
The trouble with New Year's resolutions is that they can be extremely impractical. Setting goals is a great idea, but make sure they are realistic and feasible. For example, a goal to lose 12 lbs by Easter is both reasonable and achievable. So is a goal to complete a 5K run by tax day. Conversely, a goal to complete a marathon by that date is unrealistic and potentially unsafe for newbie runners. Think of it as if you were building a house: start slowly (with low intensity and shorter duration), develop a solid foundation of fitness and then build upon that foundation as your fitness improves!
