With New Year’s Resolutions come New Year’s Slumps which hit sometime between the end of January and the beginning of February. No one talks about it. No one admits that the Resolutions they made were untenable. They simply try and push through the Slump period, hoping for momentum to get them through the winter. And yet, that’s what winter is for. To move a little slower, stretch a little longer, ski, skate, enjoy the sports and activities that demand that you stay warm in order to perform. Now is the time to work on your strength and conditioning program, to come in for your Athletic Performance Assessment so the Fusion team can help you devise a workout program that you’ll actually want to do. If you’ve always wanted to try running, but haven’t had the time, come in and try our Alter G; it may be just the introduction to a sport that is one of my personal favorites. And what about the Jacob’s Ladder; it brings whole-body fitness to a new level. In other words, the New Year’s Slump has gotten a bad rap. Embrace the Slump season. Watch Sochi and get inspired. This time of slower-moving is very short-lived. In a few months, you’ll be moving quicker; your muscles will want to expand and push you forwards. Be ready for that energy and motion. Our goal is to make sure you’re powerful and strong for your races and vacations, tennis matches and golf rounds, triathlons and marathons. I’ve seen you all on the Fusion floor and know that your peak performance is yet to come.
When cold, drink tepid beverages, not piping hot ones. Soups are good filling ways to stay warm inside and out.
