Becoming healthier, stronger in 2014

LAWTON, Okla._ One local gym says this week they've seen double the amount of people working out during peak hours, but they don't anticipate the crowds lasting long.

"You have to be motivated, you got to want to do it," said Tony Honor, a certified trainer who works out of Freedom Fitness in Lawton. "You can't do it for your kids, you can't do it for your husband, you got to do it for yourself."

Honors says he sees a lot of new faces at the gym this times of year, but come February or March, more than 80 percent of them will stop coming on a regular basis.

"The toughest part (is) getting in the car and saying 'okay, I am going to the gym'," said Honor.

Once they get to the gym, he suggests focusing on what feels comfortable so people will be motivated to return. He says too many people focus solely on cardio. He recommends using weights to aid in exercises using the full body.

"You don't have to go fast, you don't have to put a lot of weight on (the machine)," says Honor.

The key to success is combining your workout and a healthy diet.  

"That's the other piece to the puzzle. What you put in your mouth on a daily basis is the most important thing on the other side of the fence when it comes to training."

He tells his clients to never skip breakfast and to eat five or six small meals everyday. Scheduling specific times to workout in your calendar each day is another way to stay motivated, according to Honor.
