People saying they want to “get in shape” for their New Year’s resolutions is a long-time cliché, but did you know that the data totally backs that up? Last year, a whopping 50% of Americans listed “doing more exercise” or “improving my fitness” as their 2021 New Year’s resolution, according to a study by Statista, which means that there’s a coin-flip chance that you–yes you, reading this–are making the same resolution.

Of course, making a resolution is one thing, but keeping it is a whole different ball game. Studies show that 80% of all New Year’s resolutions fail, and over half have called it quits by February. At The Gym MPLS, we know that fitness is a lifestyle and requires not just hard work, but motivation and consistent planning to succeed, and that’s what we do best. We offer a “training-first” gym experience that focuses on providing the flexibility, quality equipment, and resources to support the best personal trainers, who in turn can provide the most effective, long-term training to their clients. 

Training Options that Work With You for Success

We also have a deep understanding that every single person and every single body is different. Many fitness resolutions fail because someone tries to force themselves into an inflexible, “one-size-fits-all” workout regimen that simply doesn’t match their body, their abilities, or their schedules. If a personal trainer doesn’t quite fit with your lifestyle, we offer Personalized Group Training classes that bring together the motivation and camaraderie of a traditional fitness class but with the individualized goals and training needs of a one-on-one personal trainer. 

Can’t find the time to even come into the gym? That’s why we created the Apex Anywhere program; a personalized daily individual workout tailored to the complexities of your schedule and availability. Whether you’re at your beautiful home gym, a less-than-up-to-date hotel workout room, or you just have 10 minutes at work to get in a solid bit of exercise, each day, you’ll receive a check-in text from your personal Apex trainer and fill out what you have at your disposal–from time to fitness goals to available equipment–and receive a personalized routine to make the most of whatever your situation.

Rather than just showing up to a big chain gym not sure of what to do, running yourself ragged, and becoming just another New Year’s statistic, contact us at The Gym MPLS to ensure that your resolution turns into a real success story. Whether you’re looking for a training program that flexes with your life or just a welcoming gym to flex your muscles, we want to be your go-to resource.
