The new year is here, which means it's time for us to set goals and make resolutions, often geared towards bettering ourselves. According to a study done by Statista , three of the top five New Year's Resolutions made by Americans for 2021 involved living a healthier lifestyle. Luckily, there's a few businesses in West Allis Downtown that can help you meet those fitness goals! Goal: Improve Overall Health
50% of people surveyed for the Statista study indicated that their 2021 Resolution was to " improve their fitness". If you're unsure where to start, make an appointment with a general practitioner, like Dr. Shahida and Dr. Masroor Munim at Internal Medicine Associates. General Practitioners not only give you an annual physical exam, but can help you understand your health needs and create a plan for how to achieve your health goals.
Your doctor might advise you to add different supplements and foods into your life to help improve your health. Luckily, SupplementWarehouse.com on 71st and Greenfield offers a wide range of supplements, protein powders, and more to get you started. Don't be discouraged, supplements aren't just for body builders!
Goal: More Exercise
If you have a pretty good idea of what you need to do to meet your health goals, then we would suggest checking out Influence Fitness on 72nd and Greenfield Avenue. John and Kristina are personal trainers who work with you one on one or with a friend at your speed to help meet your fitness goals. They offer a variety of workouts, from weight training and HIIT to weight loss and agility programs, offering something for everyone at any fitness level.
Goal: Improve Diet
Let's face it: dieting sucks. It often feels restrictive or you still feel hungry after you've eaten your carefully calorie counted meal, but it doesn't have to be like that! There are so many healthy foods that taste great, and you can get some in the heart of West Allis Downtown!
Swaye Tea Cafe on 73rd and Greenfield Avenue added the "cafe" part of their business in early 2021, offering fresh super foods and vegan cuisine to their already popular menu of teas and smoothies.
Owner Shiree Bass-Henry is well known throughout the area for her tea blend and their medicinal qualities as well as her detox juices.
Camino West Allis on 72nd and Greenfield also offers a wide selection of healthy eats. With 15 items on their regular menu being vegetarian friendly, your cheat days don't really need to feel like cheating ;)
We hope these local businesses give a you good start on your new year's health goals!
