San Jose Personal Trainers Explain Why New Year’s Plans Often Fail


Our San Jose personal trainers see this every January- people everywhere make promises to themselves in New Year’s Resolutions.

  • “This is the year I finally get in shape!”
  • “This is the year I lose the weight!”
  • “This is the year I start my business!”


And then by every February, the vast majority have failed already.


Our San Jose personal trainers want to talk about why.


If we discuss a few common reasons why well-intentioned resolutions fail so often, then maybe we can find a better way to reach the desired end.

  1. Resolutions are too vague. Instead of saying, “I want to get in shape,” our San Jose personal trainers want you to say you’re going to spend 15 minutes walking around the neighborhood twice a week. (Don’t worry – it will lead to more!)

  2. Don’t be so demanding of yourself. Realize that the best change is gradual.

  3. Our San Jose personal trainers want you to choose to do something positive that you enjoy, and then you won’t have to force yourself to do it every day.

  4. You don’t track your progress. If you want to eat better, download an app to record what you eat every day. If you want to slim down, take a photo of yourself each week so you can see that, despite how you might feel, you really are making progress.

  5. You don’t know your “why.” If you don’t have a profound, compelling reason for doing what you’re doing, it’s bound to fail.


The key is to examine your desire a little more deeply, and then take little, bite-sized actions each day to get started and be Stronger For Today!


As they say, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” And is followed by another… and another…
