Success Tips from a Fitness Instructor

FITNESS SUCCESS TIPS from Certified Fitness Instructor, Darcy DiBiase

It happens to the best of us. You walk in, you sign up, you carry the key tag, but you never really find your gym groove. Sometimes the hardest part of getting started is just… getting started.

Have you seen Elevate Fitness? If you’re not a regular #gymshark it can be overwhelming. So what’s the best way to get started? I have an idea.

Pick a timeslot. Add it to your calendar: pretty paper or the latest tech with alerts to your watch, the idea is the same. Commit. Repeat. Give it two weeks. That’s how long experts say it takes *on average* to develop a new habit. (But we know you’re not average. You’re amazing!)

Maybe after two weeks you find that 5:30 pm is just not working for you, your dog, your boss, your hair, whatever. We get it. No hard feelings. Pick a new time slot and try again.

What about 5:30 am? Hey, at least no one is judging your hair. Seriously. When you pinky promise to a time slot at Elevate Fitness, you aren’t obligated to a sentence of “dreadmills” and gym bro’s. For every weekday time slot that fits perfectly into your life, there’s a ton of variety for what you can do when you report for duty. The more of those options you try, the less of a chore it becomes, the more fun you have and the more you want to try again.

Consider that early morning appointment… Monday-Friday you get 5 days of different group fitness options including

… all with certified instructors dedicated to your success. Maybe you like a smaller group vibe– check out team in training in the cage. You get your own personal trainer with a fresh WOD, at a fraction of the cost. Need a little less impact? Hop in the pool.

If you’re feeling a little intimidated by all that equipment on the floor, connect with a personal trainer. If you don’t, get out there: lift heavy and get after that cardio on one of a dozen different machines. Like hanging out between reps? Get hooked up with TRX.

Stretch it all out before you hit the showers and you can be on the road by 7:30 AM, even if you have to do your hair. Not a bad way to kick off another amazing day.

Yes, those first two weeks of building a new habit might be a challenge, but stick with it. Get out of your comfort zone and into your results zone. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon.
