If you are like many people, you will make a list of New Year's resolutions. You will start off with renewed energy and motivation and the desire to make positive changes. This year will you be successful in working consistently on your resolutions, or, will you throw in the towel after a fepilates 100w weeks or so when the newness wears off and roadblocks in life pop up?

Instead of thinking of resolutions as a "get results quick" decision, think of it as a healthy process that doesn't happen overnight, but, when done consistently will become a new lifelong behavior.  


The process of change requires awareness of your current behavior, what your desired outcome is, and what new behavior will you need to put into place to achieve success.

Here are a few strategies to help you jump start your 2012 Resolution:

  1. Substitute a specific goal for your resolution. Keep it specific, measureable, attainable, realistic for your lifestyle, and set a completion date to create a sense of urgency.  
  2. Change your unhealthy environment. Don't make it harder on yourself with unhealthy foods within easy grasp.   You will eat what's visible and available whether healthy or not.
  3. Be prepared for your challenges. When you know it's unlikely you won't come to Fitness Pointe after you arrive home, pack your gear and put into your car the night before and leave on your front seat so you come to work out before going home....and don't forget your healthy snack.
  4. Realize that setbacks and roadblocks are part of life. EVERYONE has them, Life is not an all or nothing arena. We all have actions that we were not happy with, but, accepting responsibility and not dooming ourselves as failures but a person who did not make the best choice at the time will lead you closer to success than failure.

Remember that behavioral change is a difficult thing to do but, the rewards in a healthier, energized, and happier you is well worth it.

To a healthy 2012

COACH Fitness





The Fitness Pointe "COACH" Programs offer small group personal training at a fraction of the cost of one on one personal training.  Our COACH programs run in 8 week cycles and offer a 'drop in trial class ($15/class)' during week 9 (see attached) so you can 'try before you buy' a full session. 

Our current COACH Session (beginning January 3rd) will offer the following programs:

This unique program uses free-weights (i.e.dumbbells) and is a one of a kind offering for serious exercisers looking to lift weights and change their body.


Kettlebell Bootcamp

Get fit using one of the hottest new pieces of fitness equipment; the Kettlebell.  A unique program training the body in all planes of movement.



This program gives you the strengthening and stretching of a Pilates program combined with the functional movement training of a Kettlebell workout.

Why do I need a professional facial or body treatment?


          Due to dry winter weather and indoor heating, even oily skin types can become dehydrated. This is a great time of year to not only counteract damage caused by the summer sun, but also prevent excessive dryness that can lead to premature aging.

Professional exfoliation treatments are needed year round to help products absorb more effectively and this is especially true in colder weather. Used regularly between spa treatments, Pevonia's Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream for the face and Silky Scrub for the body help to maintain healthy, brighter, younger looking skin.

          Layers of dead skin cells on the surface of the face and body need to be removed to reveal newer skin cells below as well as allow moisturizers to do their job. Spa Pointe customizes each treatment to fit an individual's specific skin care needs.
