We always start January with the best of intentions–this is the year I will lose weight, eat healthier, find that work/life balance and finally travel more— but it’s always easier said than done.

While a lot of people who make New Year’s resolutions do break them, research shows that making resolutions is useful. People who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attend their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.

If weight loss is going to be your goal this year, start with an exercise program! Physical therapists are movement specialists and are trained in how to design specific exercise programs to best meet your individual needs. This can often be done in just a few visits.

We can help instruct you in a walking program and get you set-up with some resistance strengthening or teach you how to use those intimidating exercise balls. Simply put, a physical therapist can help get you moving!
