How to keep your fitness New Year’s resolution
By WVUA 23 Digital Reporter Kyrsten Eller
Now that Christmas is officially over, it’s time to turn your attention to the New Year. For plenty of people, that means making new New Year’s resolutions.
One of the most common resolutions? Get healthy. One of the most common failed resolutions? Getting healthy.
The trick is finding a plan that works longer than a few weeks.
Northridge Fitness Personal Trainer Bailey Welborn said it’s all about formulating a plan you can stick to.
“Most people are trying to do the whole New Year, new me thing,” said Welborn. “And most of the time they come in just trying to get off a little extra weight and stuff. So that’s where some of us personal trainers can come in handy. Maybe you’ve got some new clothes for Christmas and you want to fit into them a little better, so just trying to cut off some of that Christmas weight and stuff like that.”
Personal training offers accountability, Welborn said, because it’s hard to blow off a trip to the gym if you’re scheduled to meet and work out with someone else.
