RHINELANDER - We're just one short week into 2013. That means gym membership across the country is sky-rocketing. Fitness resolutions are easy to make, but the age-old problem is that they're a little harder to keep.

The beginning of a new year is a perfect time for a fresh start. A chance to live a healthier life by forming- and keeping goals.Here at the YMCA of the Northwoods, avoiding a resolution letdown is often a theme in January.

The YMCA's Andrea Collins knows all about New Years trends.


"Their signing up for the classes, otherwise you get your regulars that come in at 5am everyday, its great to see the new faces that have been coming in."

But what type of additude turns new members into regulars?

"You've got to stick with it, and stay with it, stay consistant, and work through the pain sometimes." Said workout enthusiast, Mike Drew.

Ethan Cummings, who is a seasoned marathon runner, knows motivation is the answer.

"Somedays you feel good, and somedays you don't feel that good. Today I didn't feel that good. But you kind of accept that and do what you can."

Members also have tips on how not to get burned out too quickly.

Julie Lacrosse offered the Northwoods her advice for those who want to do way too much, too soon.

"You work at your own speed, you make friendships, you get support groups that are trying to do what you're doing."

And for all the individuals who feel like it's too much of a struggle to make it to the gym, Cummings chimed in again with the greatest point of the day.

"I know may start off feeling bad, but I know I'm going to feel better at the end so I do it anyway."

WISCONSIN - Wisconsin wildlife leaders want to remind deer hunters to learn the boundaries of new management units by reviewing county lines.

The DNR reduced the number of traditional management units this year from 134 to 72 units based on county boundaries in an effort to simplify the hunt.

The agency says hunters need to have a good idea where county lines are so they know where units begin and end.

The new units don't follow roads or rivers like they did in the past.

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) and Kelly Westlund (D-Ashland) are running for the 7th Congressional District seat. The district covers part of 20 counties across northern Wisconsin.

The area lags behind the rest of the state economically. That was one of the reasons mining was a topic of focus. The Gogebic Taconite project would involve a four mile open pit mine in Iron and Ashland County. The project could mean more than 600 jobs with other secondary jobs connected to the mine.
