Most of our customers know that if you visit our store you are greeted by vast array of products ranging from fitness equipment to pool and spa supplies, barbecues, and more!
This time of year particularly, our fitness sales see a major boost - thanks to everyone making fitness their "New Years Resolution".
We've all made getting in better shape a priority at one point or the other - but what does it really take to see new years resolution RESULTS?
After almost 7 years in business we've started to see a pattern among those that are successful in following through with their resolutions, no matter what they are.
1. BE KIND TO YOURSELF
Ever catch yourself making a to do list, and then adding a couple things at the bottom of it that you know you've already done, just for the satisfaction of crossing them off? It's OK to allow yourself to celebrate small victories - even if it means reminding yourself of them.
Kindness to oneself should also be a factor in making your new years resolution itself. Don't set extraordinary goals for yourself that you know you will stress yourself trying to reach. Resolutions should be sources of inspiration not toxic burdens.
2. KEEP GOING
Weather the goal is to pay off debt, work off weight, travel or sell your home - the road to worthwhile change is never a simple one. Be your own cheerleader, and just keep going. No success has ever come without hard work and perseverance, and the idioms on the subject are countless - so that in itself is saying something!
3. GO WITH YOUR GUT
Surround yourself with people who you know are going to help you succeed in your goals. Do business with, hire, trade and work with people you feel like you can trust. Be honest and expect honesty, and just go with your gut. For example, if you find a personal trainer who you can tell will be a good support to you - trust your instincts. Weight loss, like most other journeys, requires a certain connection between the mind and the body that often involves intuition.
4. TELL SOMEONE
When you see yourself shedding a little weight - or cutting down on that debt, or completing small parts of that project - tell someone. Sometimes it helps to verbalize ourselves getting closer to our goals. Like climbing the rungs on a ladder - each step closer took work - and acknowledging what it took you to get there helps remind you of the progress you are making.
ALL IN ALL - this year we resolve - as a business - to continue to provide a high standard of customer service , and improve on it in any way we can. We resolve to continue to work closely with our manufacturers and suppliers to assure we are providing you with the highest quality products at the best prices. And last but not least - we resolve to support local business as often as possible.
