If you are looking to make some changes in your life now that we’re in 2020, you are not alone. Making a New Year resolution is as American as apple pie, baseball or any other U.S.A. cliché you can think of. In fact, according to a YouGov survey, nearly seven out of 10 people make some sort of New Year resolution for themselves as they say goodbye to the past year and look ahead to becoming a more focused and determined person.

There seems to be a common misconception about what “core strength” really is. People throw the term around and regularly schedule “ab day” into their routine. They act as if doing a bunch of situps will give them the abs they’ve been chasing and the physical balance needed to be healthy. The reality is, core strength entails so much more.

As a society, we love the idea of six-pack abs. But most people don’t realize your lower back and glutes are as much a part of your core as your abs are. And you need balance.

SteveBlanchardHeadshotI’ve never conducted a poll, but I would bet that at least 90% of us are unhappy with the way we look.

We wish we had fewer wrinkles and scars and probably most commonly better bodies.

The LGBT community is incredibly driven by visual stimuli. Ads promoting everything from spa services to beer feature beautiful men and women in the prime of their lives rocking bodies that rival those in Hollywood. And in the age of new technology, we’re flooded with photos and videos of our dream men or women in poses we would never imagine for ourselves.

It’s easy to appreciate beauty but it’s even easier to be intimidated by it.
