31 Reasons to NOT Quit Your New Year’s Resolution

With the new year coming, people love to talk about resolutions. Resolutions can be important, and the new year is always a good time for reflection on the past and contemplation on plans for the upcoming year. Making plans for the future can bring a lot of satisfaction to someone, and having a goal in mind, can keep you motivated to finish to the end. Making a resolution at the beginning of the year can set you up for success. We are giving you 31 reasons to not quit your new year’s resolution in 2023, Condition 1 Combat style!

  1. Full-Body Workout
    • Martial arts isn’t just an upper-body or lower-body workout. We hit everything! You’ll be sore the morning after your first class, but you’ll be proud of yourself for doing it! At Condition 1, our classes use all muscle groups (including your brain) to give you the best workout possible.
  2. Try Something New
    • Just like getting a new pair of shoes, it’s exciting to try something new! If you’ve been following our page, but haven’t given us a try yet, what’s holding you back? The new year is always a good time to try something new. Come try us on for size, and come see us on the mats to learn how we can change your life!
  3. Increase Confidence
    • How many ways can we find that practicing martial arts will increase your confidence…let’s go!
      • Practicing martial arts is a form of physical exercise, so your body will change, become fit, and you’ll look fantastic!
      • Our core martial arts disciples combine the physical and mental aspects, which will, in turn, boost your confidence.
      • Learning self-defense will help you feel safer when alone and possibly in a dangerous situation; however, you’ll have the tools to keep you safe and protect yourself.
      • Physical exercise releases dopamine and serotonin into the bloodstream, which are linked to boosting your mood and treating depression.
  4. Better Coordination
    • You can’t get better without practice, right? Martial arts is a great way to work on bodily coordination because it involves your whole body when working out. You’ll work multiple muscle groups that allow you to improve coordination! 
  5. Lower Your Risk of Heart Diseases
    • Exercise gets your blood pumping! That means your circulation to all the important parts of your body is improved. By exercising regularly, the increased blood flow raises the oxygen levels in your body, helping to reduce your risk of heart diseases such as high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, and heart attack. Regular exercise also helps to lower your blood pressure!
  6. Mental Strength and Focus
    • You’d be surprised how powerful your mind can be. When training in martial arts, we focus not only on the body but also on pushing the limits of our mental strength. Working out brings oxygen to the brain, which allows you to stay in tune with the exercises you are doing. Martial arts requires a lot of thinking and planning, which can come naturally over time!

Discipline will allow you to gain muscle memory that will kick in if you’re ever in a dangerous situation!

  14. Perseverance
    • The hardest time to push yourself is when you think you’re at the end of your rope. We promise you, you’re not. Pushing yourself to the end, whether it’s another hit, another 10 seconds in a plank or finishing the class, you’re persevering. And, that’s incredible! At Condition 1, we’ll push you to persevere because the only thing stopping you is yourself!

  18. R-E-S-P-E-C-T

    • Everyone talks about getting in their cardio each day. What if you could get in your cardio without stepping foot on a treadmill? When practicing martial arts, you’ll master the art of multi-tasking because you’re constantly doing cardio. It doesn’t matter if it’s Muay Tai, Jiu-Jitsu or Krav Maga, your heart will be pumping, and you’ll get in your cardio for the day!

  24. Inclusion
    • We have something for everyone at any stage of practice. If you are just getting started in martial arts yet have never thrown a punch, or if you’re a Black Belt, we have the class and instructor for you who can take you to the next level. Also, we accept children as young as five (5) years old, so the whole family can attend our school.
  25. Balance
    • Standing on one leg, throwing kicks and learning how to fall properly to avoid injury will all increase your balance. Learning to stabilize yourself on one foot will build your athleticism. With balance, you will be able to perform advanced kicks properly, counter strikes smoothly and increase your kicking power.
  26. Community
    • Are you new to The Woodlands area? Or maybe you work from home and you’re looking for a reason to get out of the house more? Joining a gym like Condition 1 can help you get connected to the community! We have people from all walks of life walk through our doors. Who knows who you’ll meet?

  28. Improved Habits
    • We all know the benefits of exercise, but we still find ourselves not doing it as much as we should. Being consistent is the only way to create a better habit. Turn exercise from a chore into an enjoyable routine by joining a gym that wants the best for you. Getting out of the house and into an environment that pushes you will help you make that change and form a good habit that benefits you in every way.
  29. Diversity
    • Our martial arts style is so different, it’s hard to do the same class twice! The owners, Joe and Tia designed the Condition 1 training program with diversity in mind so you are never bored, and you get well-rounded knowledge and practice in multiple styles of martial arts.
  30. Mental Health
    • It’s proven that exercise works the brain as well as the body, making it a great tool to help combat conditions like anxiety and depression. Moving your body increases blood circulation to the brain, engaging multiple regions of the brain to create a positive feeling. This can improve your mood and motivation, leading to a happier and healthier you. Exercise goes beyond the body!
  31. Be a Badass
    • So, you’ve spent a month going to a gym, learning new skills, pushing your body, probably hitting stuff really hard and you look good doing it. Isn’t that the definition of a badass?!? It is in our dictionary! So keep showing up, keep hitting stuff really hard, keep pushing yourself to new limits. Keep being a badass!

We hope these 31 reasons help you not quit your resolution for this new year. 2023 is going to be a great year! We can feel it coming!! And, remember, KEEP GOING! Don’t quit after January. Keep up with your martial arts training all year! We know you won’t regret it! No one regrets doing a positive, healthy thing in their life!
