SHREWSBURY, Mass. - March 11, 2014 - PRLog -- With the Holidays in your rear view mirror and the joy of another season ready to spring itself (pun intended) into sight, it is sometimes hard to keep momentum when it comes to your health. For most fitness enthusiasts, we've been cooped up indoors and are anticipating some fresh air in our lungs, for others its 2 months into their New Year resolutions and they've hit a plateau. March can drive you mad! So whether you're looking for some motivation to keep yourself fit through spring, or are a parent hoping to get your kids ready for spring sports- SHARC is here to help!

Stay Motivated With Friends

It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned athlete or are lacing up your sneakers for the first time---using the buddy system really generates results and keeps you on track. Group fitness allows you to receive proper fitness instructions to reduce injuries, as well as keep you motivated through the duration of a work out. By participating in group fitness classes you will find yourself pushing harder, making new friends, and settle into a routine that works!

Challenge Yourself:

It's true that excuses don't burn calories so it makes sense that you'd stop seeing results once you stop challenging yourself. Trying a new work-out is always a great way to push your fitness to the next level. For example, if you spend most of your time relying on cardio- try doing some weight lifting and conditioning to build your strength. Or, if you are a strong swimmer- try taking a Zumba or Yoga class!

According SHARC ‘s Personal Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach, Ray Barrieault "variety is the spice of life" when it comes to keeping yourself motivated.  "Doing the same old routine over and over again can get monotonous, and downright boring.  Not to mention, doing the same routine for too long will greatly reduce the benefits/gains from said routine.  So, changing up the routine serves multiple purposes.  It helps keep things fresh and interesting for you, and it will keep you gaining strength, losing weight, or keep getting you closer to whatever your goal may be" states Barrieault.

Get Kids Psyched About Spring:

Before teens and tweens jump into the demanding routine of a competitive sport, it is important for parents to prepare their kids for the challenge of spring sports! Rather than focusing on improving specific sport skills, there are programs here at SHARC that are designed to improve core development and control. Here is what your kids will take away from SHARC's Varsity Academy:

-Activate and improve flexibility

-Correct muscular imbalances to prevent injury

-Teach proper muscle and movement patterns

-Movement efficiencies and momentum control

-Overall muscle strength development

Athletes that jump into a competitive sport without understanding their bodies' limitations could result in a minimal performance peak as well as an increase in sports injuries. By providing our young athletes with essential sports conditioning tools, we help strengthen their abilities in the future. It is the piece of the puzzle that most athletes are missing and is extremely young sports enthusiasts.

Fight the madness and hop out of hibernation in March! Whether or not you're looking to start fresh in time for spring, or you are looking to make those resolutions last by the time the snow completely melts- YOU CAN DO IT! Grab a buddy, make a plan, and remember- keep moving!
