Is Your Fitness Resolution Flagging?
 
Aberdeen Podiatrist | Aberdeen Is Your Fitness Resolution Flagging? | NJ | Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists |

Perhaps this sounds familiar: at the start of the New Year, you decide that it’s time to get in shape. You start a new exercise program or fitness activity and are gung ho for a few weeks. About this time your enthusiasm starts to wane and gradually your workout time decreases until it completely disappears and you’re right back where you started.

At Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care we find that fitness plans often get derailed for simple and preventable reasons. Below are some tips to help you stay strong:

  • Choose a good program—do some research and choose a program that is safe and has a solid reputation for helping others get in shape. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Fitness plans that promise big results with little effort don’t usually work. The best programs should start slowly and gradually build in duration and intensity. Doing too much too soon is a surefire path to injuries such as Achilles tendonitis and stress fractures.
  • Get the right shoes—fitness shoes are specifically designed for the foot movement associated with the sport or activity you choose. Tennis shoes are different from running shoes. Get professionally measured and find the most comfortable pair of shoes for your activity. This will help reduce foot fatigue and pain that can discourage a new athlete.
  • Set attainable goals—losing 25 pounds or being able to run a marathon are overwhelming goals that take months to achieve. It’s easy to lose hope when the end is so far out of sight. Stay motivated by setting small goals: lose 10 pounds, run a 5K, etc. Celebrate each achievement and then set new and more challenging goals.
  • Don’t ignore pain—yes, some soreness is normal in a new fitness program, particularly if you’ve been sedentary for a while but sharp, consistent pain is a sign that something is wrong. Old injuries can resurface when you become active. Your podiatrist, Dr. Christopher J. Mullin, Dr. Jessica A. Addeo or Dr. Rajan Patel will examine your feet and ankles and be able to help relieve pain and make recommendations that will allow you to keep your fitness plan on track. Contact our Aberdeen office today by calling 732-566-2841 to learn more about fitness and your feet.
