Although ‘Get Fit’ and ‘Lose Weight’ are two of the more popular New Year resolutions, they are also two of the hardest goals to achieve. Getting in better shape invariably means a drastic change in lifestyle, and not too many people have the willpower or the flexibility to bring about that change without considerable support and encouragement from those around them.
However, that doesn’t mean that making a New Year resolution to get in better shape is a waste of time. We just need to be realistic in the goals we set for ourselves and create an environment that allows us to succeed. We also need a coach and partner to keep us on track – and that’s where Verizon FiOS can lend a helping hand.
A superfast Internet connection opens up a whole new world of online workouts and nutrition plans that can be customized to give you exactly the results you’re looking for. Streaming services like DailyBurn and Jessica Smith TV give you access to these personal health programs at home or on the road. Whether you are following on your computer, smartphone, tablet, TV or any other connected device, all you need is that reliable Internet connection and 30 minutes a day.
If you don’t want to subscribe to an online fitness service, then there are plenty of On Demand fitness choices from Verizon FiOS, including boot camp workouts, yoga and pilates classes, and dance workouts of every imaginable description. Choose the setting and time of day and you can get everything done on your terms with no car rides or expensive gym subscriptions.
Whether you are streaming personalized fitness routines or choosing your own On Demand programming, you are far more motivated if you have a workout partner. Here’s another way Verizon FiOS can help: set up a video chat so you and your workout partner can exercise together. You don’t have to be in the same room or even in the same part of the country. You get the extra motivation from not letting your partner down and you get to socialize!
However you choose to get in shape, set attainable goals and find a routine that you know you can stick to. Enlisting the help of FiOS is the first step in turning that New Year resolution into a 2016 success story!
