A motivational note from Octane Fitness team member and certified group fitness leader:
Itâ€™s the time of year where we all hear, “Itâ€™s a new year, and a new you.” My thought is what is wrong with the old you? Why look at what is wrong with you; instead take a look at what is right with you. I know that 2013 is over, so reflect on the year and how much you have accomplished. You just might surprise yourself. Then once you establish how much you have done and how far you have come, you can build on it.
You have several goals to achieve, and you have worked hard to get this far. So why not keep going? Yes, you might have hit a few road blocks along the way. You are human. Donâ€™t fret on it. Learn how to get past these mere interferences and keep going. Life is full of things that get in your way of what you are trying to strive for, but as long as you keep going, there is no stopping you! With that in mind, let’s get 2014 off to a great start with a fun interval training workout.
