If you have some fitness goals in the new year there are a few ways you can avoid becoming a resolutioner and make fitness a lasting change in your lifestyle.
Join a Community
Working out with other people really helps you stay committed to the new habit. Join a class, or grab a workout buddy. You can keep each other accountable and you will stay with it for a longer period of time.
Plan Your Day Around It
