Happy 2020! Let Us Help You Conquer Your Goals

Personal Fitness Trainer -- A2 Physical Therapy

The holiday season can be a chaotic time, but I hope you were able to find moments of calm. Whether that was a hike or short walk outside, or even 10 minutes of meditation. Finding peace is important to your well-being, especially following such a high energy time of year. 

The new year is often a constructed point in time for us to feel refreshed and ready for a new beginning. Let’s embrace that burst of fresh energy and focus on developing better lifestyle choices. 

However, I heard clients recently say, “I don’t like setting resolutions for myself, I just end up disappointed when I don’t follow through on them.”

We at A2 Physical Therapy are here to set you up for success. Here are some strategies to get you started on tackling your goals in 2020!

Don’t: Set inflexible goals.

Do: Instead, make a list of personal reflections. For example: Did you eat less refined sugar last year? Keep it up! Did you exercise consistently? Keep doing that! Reflect and continue to build on your successes!

Don’t: Go it alone.

Do: Share reflections and goals with friends. Find people who will support and reassure you through the journey. It’s easier to remind one other that health, and our lives in general, are not linear, and there are ups and downs to be expected. The A2 community is here to help you, too. 

Don’t: Feel Pressure to Set a Resolution 

Do: Set goals because you want to. Do it knowing it might not be easy. And if you hate it, don’t be afraid to try something new! Work to be comfortable with change and allow it to happen. And do it when you’re ready.

"I’m really glad I am going to A2. My PT Danny is very knowledgeable and courteous. He pin-pointed the area affected in my hip and back. We are working to improve my strength, range of motion and ultimately lessen my pain with Danny’s wide range of stretches and strength techniques to improve my quality of life. So far in the three weeks that I’ve been enrolled I’m very impressed with A2 Physical Therapy. Thanks Danny!"

"I had a great time coming in to A2 every week. Everyone was really helpful and fun to be around. The exercises we did made a huge difference in getting my body and confidence back to shape. Next time I'm injured, I will know just where to go. Thank you!"

"I came in to A2 with a knee injury that left me with very limited mobility and muscle weakness. Danny and team did an excellent job of diagnosing exactly what my issues were and designing a treatment plan that allowed me to regain strength, balance, and confidence. I would recommend A2 without reservation as a skilled and professional team."
