Happily Achieve Your Fitness Goals in 2018- Part 2

Posted on January 6, 2018

Last week I introduced the idea that overall wellness is a better way to look at fitness goals then just setting a physical/ esthetic goal.  The ability to make an impact on the physical changes people want to see, are impacted by more than just changing exercise habits.  In the New Year so often people set fitness goals- this is great- however if you really want to be better in 2018 and make it your best year… then you need to impact:  Exercise, Sleep, Nutrition and Stress.  Last week we covered the first two topics and this week we will cover nutrition and stress.
