Since this website discusses health and well-being, I definitely want to spotlight business leaders who make a difference in their communities.
One of the cleanest, brightest, and friendliest gyms nearby is Southern Bodies Fitness Center at 221 Main Street, in Tifton, Georgia. The owners are Trisha and Steve Landers. They promote good health around every corner. In fact, I have known Trisha for at least 10 years now and no matter where I see her, she is always positive and encouraging to others about meeting their fitness goals. Additionally, they have a member special going on right now where you can pay $225 and gain access to their gym for a full year! This fee includes the sign-up charge and 24-hour keyless entry. In addition, Trisha is a personal trainer too and has an inspiring story of her own. (Her personal training Facebook page is Trisha’s personal training at Southern Bodies if interested in checking it out.)
Please see the flyer below about the special promotion and some pictures of her well-lit, clean, and functional gym. The 1 year membership special promotion ends on December 23, 2016 so if you want to take advantage of the deal, reach out to her soon. As you will see in the photos, you will be impressed if you stop by.
Honestly, if you have read anything on this website blog before, you know I want you to be your best, and fittest, regardless of where you do it— your home, a yoga studio, the great outdoors, or a local gym—whatever “floats your boat” so to speak. Even though it took me a few months to set the routine to continue incorporating exercise into my day (and not thinking of exercise as a chore), I don’t think it takes everyone that long to get into a regular routine. Also, if you are in an area of the world that offers outdoor activities like rock-climbing, hiking, snowboarding, etc. you probably live actively in your regular daily activities. However, for the majority of us, it isn’t that easy to replace purposeful exercise with fun activities that double as exercise.
If you haven’t worked out regularly before, and are not sure where to start, you have many options. One of those options is to join a gym and seek the advice of experts there, like Trisha at Southern Bodies. She is friendly and eager to help you. Getting started somewhere is imperative to be able to work toward consistency. Consistency is key to our health. As Tony Horton, P90X creator and author, said about writing the main points in his book with his collaborator, “The point is, no matter what, we kept the forward momentum going. We need to do things that propel us forward for our families, our work, our health, and ourselves because that’s how we grow and get better” (Horton, 2014, p. 68). Well said Tony…
As always, find some activity (weight-lifting, running, yoga, dance, Pilates, Zumba, etc.) that doubles as fun and make it happen regularly. Here’s to the best, most fabulous, 2017!
