Keeping Resolutions at the GymSubmitted: 01/01/2013
RHINELANDER - Planning on getting healthy in the New Year? You're not alone.

Fitness centers like the YMCA of the Northwoods will be busier than ever in January. Program coordinators and trainers can help you set and reach goals.

"They should be measurable, so you know you can really obtain them…they should be realistic, and choose a time for which you can complete those goals. Don't make them too vague, and make it a fun goal so you can reward yourself along the way as you reach those goals." Said Older Active Director, Marilyn Duschl.



You've probably let go of resolutions in years past. Duschl says planning ahead can help you stick to your goals.

"If you're planning on exercising three times a week, for 45 minutes, but you know coming up you're going to be taking a trip, or you're going to be doing something that might put a little dent in that plan, make sure you're thinking of that plan and finding alternative ways of getting that exercise without not necessarily being on that same schedule that you were before. So just be realistic and know you may have some pitfalls along the way."
