Even if you don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, you probably secretly wish that 2019 is the year you finally lose weight, build muscle or put an end to those midnight ice cream binge sessions. Too many times, you’ve begun the new year resolved to make changes, only to slip in February, whether it’s because of work or home demands or simply lost motivation. Whatever your specific goal, we get it—it’s tough to follow through on fitness and nutrition goals.
Why will this year be different? You can benefit from the wise advice of Michol Dalcourt, founder and CEO of the Institute of Motion, a leader in movement science, a programming partner for 24 Hour Fitness and a regular contributor to 24Life. An internationally recognized expert on human movement and performance, Dalcourt has developed seven exclusive workouts for 24Life, each designed to meet different goals, from weight loss to muscle building.
Unlike so many routines you’ll encounter, Dalcourt’s are effective and based on movement science—not trends. Since each is unique, you can choose one that works for your own objectives and strengths and weaknesses. Forget extreme flavor-of-the-moment workouts, such as all HIIT all the time (which can lead to injury for many). What you will discover are routines featuring types of movement that might be new to you. Think of them as stretching your exercise IQ (along with your muscles).
