By the end of February, most New Year fitness resolutions will be given up.
Gold & # 39; s Gym analyzed the check-in dates of its more than three million members over the past four years. The researchers found that the number of new members attending the gym decreased 41 days after the New Year (February 10th). Most new athletes will fall off the so-called "fitness cliff" by February 24th. Fitness magazine cover model, writer, and speaker Jamie Eason has tips to help keep your fitness resolutions on track this year.
1. Invest in it
"Buy some new workout clothes, sneakers, or a training bag," says Eason. This will prove to you that you are serious about your fitness goals. If you don't want new and / or expensive equipment to be wasted, it is easier to get off the couch and start using it.
2. Participate in a program
If you don't know how to get from point A to point B, you certainly can't get there. You don't need to earn a degree in exercise science, but you can take the time to look up or write down a plan to help you gain muscle, lose fat, or stick to your new diet.

3. Rock out
"Keep your fitness music fresh," says Eason. "Find new tracks or swap playlists with friends." Even your favorite headbanger hits can get stale after a while and not provide the motivation you need for an intense, productive workout. "If you combine your workout with fun music or escape, you won't want to miss it."
