We all ate too much over the Christmas and New Year period and a lot of us, I suspect, have made a New Year resolution to get fitter and healthier. It is well known that Gym memberships increase at the beginning of the year but attendance falls as the year passes.
A USA statistic for 2012 showed that 80% who started in the January quit within 5 months of joining; 4% by the end of January and 12% in February, with 67% never use them. Although the statistics are from the USA it gives an idea of how quickly good intentions can fall away.
Here are some top tips to help you keep the New Year Resolution going for the entire year and beyond. Good Luck.
