Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
Pleasant Lewis, Owner of Several Gold’s Gyms in The Orlando, Florida area, has today issued a warning to individuals concerning the impending Fitness Cliff – the day most consumers forsake their New Year’s fitness resolutions and fall back into their staid, placid, unhealthy ways.
Those at risk of falling off the Fitness Cliff typically make New Year’s Resolutions to live a healthy lifestyle including joining a Gym, instead of looking at a complete healthy lifestyle year round. Rather than setting long term, attainable goals for fitness these cliff victims set unrealistic short term goals and become discouraged.
The immediate upshot of falling off the cliff is an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, hypertension, weight gain, diabetes and other deadly health conditions created or accelerated by a lack of fitness and poor overall health.
“Do not risk your health and vitality on the impending Fitness Cliff,” warns Pleasant Lewis, President of five Gold’s Gyms in Central Florida. The Fiscal Cliff is now behind us, but Mr. Lewis and other health and fitness experts are warning against something much more insidious – the Fitness Cliff experienced when well-intentioned people forsake their fitness and health goals every year. February 7 is the start of days that see the most people "fall off the wagon” and gyms around the nation experience rapidly declining memberships. For every person who forsakes their fitness goals, the risk of developing life-threatening health conditions skyrockets.
New Year’s resolutions to get in better shape, improve fitness and enjoy better health are very common, but not nearly as many individuals as Mr. Lewis would like, actually manage to stick to their guns here. Part of the problem is today’s hectic, frenzied lifestyle, but there are other issues that can force a consumer over the Fitness Cliff. Signs of impending failure include feeling too busy to make it to the gym, feeling anger at the amount of effort being put in with no visible results, a lack of motivation and a slow return to old, unhealthy habits.
“Everyone in the Orlando area who started working out only as part of a New Year’s Resolution is in danger of going over the Fitness Cliff,” Pleasant Lewis said. However, Gold’s Gym is offer incentives to help prevent them from going over the edge. Mr. Lewis went on to say, “Gold’s helps clients avoid the Fitness Cliff by offering the most group classes and the most diverse facilities anywhere to fit in with anyone’s lifestyle and schedule.”
Complete health and wellness under one roof can help people to retain interest and make the most of their valuable time to avoid the cliff so Hydro-Massage therapy, indoor tanning, juice and sandwich bars and even a red light and laser treatments to melt fat in those problem areas is also offered.
Gold’s Gym is offering the most excellent group classes in Orlando for better motivation and the widest range of equipment and facilities as well. Facilities include Pilates, Spin Classes, a cardio theater with the latest movies, complete entertainment on all cardio machines, private women’s facilities, extensive stretching options, rock climbing and of course the most complete weight training facilities anywhere.
The leader in the personal fitness industry is also offering a free seven-day membership, as well as a free training session. However, for most consumers, the $75,000 reward offered to prevent Gold’s Gym members nationwide from falling into the fitness abyss is the most interesting aspect here.
The 2013 Gold’s Gym Challenge reward program includes $75,000 in cash prizes, as well as a Kinect Xbox 360 prize pack for every winner. Each group will see one male and one female winner. Groups are setup by age brackets, with five groups total (18-29/30-39/40-49/50-59/60+). More information on the 2013 Gold’s Gym Challenge can be found at http://www.GoldsGym.com/Challenge/.
