Now that Halloween has come and gone, you may think you are in the clear as far as avoiding all of that candy. Then before you know it, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s are upon us, and weight loss seems almost unfathomable. You tell yourself it’s no use and fail to avoid all that stuffing, eggnog and those awesome tree-shaped sugar cookies that Aunt Mary always makes. You figure, that’s what a “new year” is for, and ultimately you make the decision to live without the structure of healthy choices and put off your weight loss plan until that time comes. The question is, how many resolutions have you made so far? I would imagine that if each weight loss promises you’ve made every year equaled 5 pounds, you’d have disappeared by now! The truth is, people make the New Year promise because they need an excuse. Not enough time to work out because prep for the holidays keeps you busy, there’s too many opportunities to eat all those goodies so might as well start later, and money is tight because hosting a holiday party and purchasing gifts is consuming most of your hard earned cash. Whatever reasons you continue to support, you will always end up with the exact same result each year. But when you make the choice to prioritize your health above everything else, you will yield consistent weight loss through healthy diet and exercise.
It’s never too early to begin a weight loss program, and starting before the holidays is a great way to condition yourself to remain disciplined when you need to be, as well as accept those occasional cheat days when they cross your path. At Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts (TSMMA), you will find an instructor trained to motivate and teach you safe, high energy martial arts techniques that are guaranteed to help you shed pounds. Several students have proven that weight loss is attainable through the fast paced, fun kickboxing classes at any of the TSMMA schools. A one hour kickboxing class can burn up to 800 calories! With consistent training and nutritional guidance from a TSMMA instructor, many individuals have achieved their weight loss goals in a matter of weeks. Instructors are committed to helping you create and attain personal weight loss goals from the moment you walk through the doors of TSMMA, and will continue to provide encouragement and support until the day it’s time to make new goals. In addition to kickboxing classes, many schools often participate in team building 30, 60 and 90 day weight loss challenges as well for added camaraderie and competitiveness.
There are always plenty of things to do between now and the holidays. Sometimes we can get so involved with work, family and personal obligations that we forget to take care of ourselves and lose sight of our weight loss objectives. Treat yourself this season to a FREE trial kickboxing class at a TSMMA near you. Make time for “YOU” and rejuvenate your body and mind through an intense cardio workout that will teach you how to maintain discipline through proper nutrition and exercise, and relieve the stress and chaos of the holiday season.
