There's a Reason Boston Celebrity Athletes and Trainers are Good at What They Do. They Have Rules.

It’s that time of year again—New Year’s resolutions. And at the top of almost everyone’s list is getting in better shape. Here, two fitness gurus tell us their best tips and tricks to achieve your fitness goals in the New Year.


Taryn Toomey, founder of The Class

“For me, the key is using discipline and consistency when executing something new. Often, when we embark on a new program, we quit as soon as the resistance or difficulty shows up. Schedule time for your workouts and self-care—mark it in your calendar as if you are scheduling a meeting. Then, commit to tolerating the feeling around it while you implement a new way of being. Once your body and mind begin to change to your new way of being, it becomes your new normal and there is less effort needed to implement the action. We say it in The Class all the time: ‘practice your practice’; and then you become your practice.” 22 Park Place, New York City


Alex Guerrero, co-Founder of TB12

“Clearly define what you’re expecting to get out of your fitness journey. From there, I find it’s important to write down that goal because a goal not written is only a wish. Additionally, finding a partner who can hold you accountable will go a long way. And most importantly, as we practice at TB12, your ability to attain your fitness goal is only possible by your ability to recover. Proper hydration and nutrition combined with pliability exercises pre- and post-workout will help you yield the best outcome.” 699 Boylston St.
