The most common New Year's Resolution is joining a gym or health club. Memberships swell in February, however, most of us have already stopped going by June. It seems like there's an endless cycle of joining a gym, quitting a gym, joining a new gym, and then quitting that gym as well. Whether it's some large inconvenience or small annoyance, something always prevents you from fully utilizing a health club and achieving the body you desire. This month's Signature Forum Health & Fitness Newsletter will be looking at the alternatives to health club services. When it comes to looking and feeling your best, there is no substitute for diet and exercise. However, during certain times of the year, you might not be able to hit the gym as much...but that doesn't mean you still can't have the body you want.

The Home Gym Experience

One popular alternative to joining a health club is hiring a certified contractor to transform your basement or spare room into a home fitness center. A true home gym is more than just a weight set, but offers all the same types of equipment as professional health clubs. Home gyms make it little easier to exercise because it cuts out the travel time, however, if the actual working out is what's bring you down then a home gym won't be of any help. It'll just be another place not to work out in.

Body Shaping and Cellulite Removal

Medical spas and laser clinics currently offer non-surgical treatments for both body shaping and cellulite removal. Treatments such as VelaShape™, VelaSmooth™, Endermologie, and ContrAge™ can help smooth skin and shape bodies. VelaShape and VelaSmooth use radio frequencies and infrared light to help boost your metabolism and burn fat, creating a slimmer appearance. Another body sculpting treatment called Arasys uses electrical waveforms to contract muscles. Arasys can simulate the effects of hundreds of sit-ups with little effort needed. Additionally, studies have found that cellulite removal treatments are actually more efficient at removing cellulite than exercise. This is because it's near impossible to target where fat is burned during a workout. Treatments like LipoDissolve and Mesotherapy can reduce cellulite by focusing on problem areas through a series of injections. No gym memberships required!
