Have you ever wandered the aisles of a department store with the vague goal of buying some clothes? When I do this, I usually end up meandering for a while before buying something I really don’t need. Or I walk out with nothing at all because I find the sheer volume of choices paralyzing when I try to shop without a specific goal in mind.
As we all know, Valentine’s Day is about love – showing love to your spouse, partner, boyfriend, girlfriend, parent, child, teacher, etc. But who says you can’t send yourself a Valentine?
We’d like to suggest that you can, by giving yourself some self-care this year. And what better way to do that than with a massage?

Research shows that working out in a group is effective, motivating and fun. But, for people who are new to group exercise, it can also be a little intimidating. At Cornerstone Clubs, we are committed to helping you start out on the right foot. We know that if you feel confident from the second you step on the road, you’ll stay for the journey.
One way we demonstrate our commitment is by offering several introductory free fitness classes each month. These classes allow you an opportunity to try something new or different in a non-intimidating and educational way. Small class sizes guarantee personal attention that will prepare you to step right into a regularly scheduled class with confidence. These hour-long classes are available to you absolutely FREE (with the exception of Reformer Fundamentals, which costs $10).
It’s no secret that human beings are social creatures. We’re wired to enjoy doing things together: playing, collaborating on school and work projects, attending dances and social events, participating in sports, and celebrating occasions like weddings and birthdays.

Have you ever started a new diet, only to quit two weeks later? Or what about that time you jumped into that crazy intense 6 a.m. boot camp class, realized you were in way over your head, and never went back?
We’ve all been there. We have the best intentions, but sticking with these health and fitness goals can be a challenge.
Now think about the time you made a deal with your friend/spouse/sibling to walk together three times a week. That was much easier to stick to, wasn’t it? Having somebody with you, somebody to hold you accountable, somebody you don’t want to let down is a game changer.
It’s easy to make New Year’s resolutions.
The hard part is sticking to that pledge to eat better, give up smoking, get more exercise, watch less TV.

Why do so many people fail to stick to their resolutions, and what can we learn from the people who succeed? Read on to see how you can make 2017 the year where your resolutions last.
