Stateliners Get to Work on New Year's Resolutions

Quite a few stateliners decided to make up for last night's partying by heading to the gym this morning. Local businesses are more than willing to help us take on one of our most popular New ear's resolution.

Tina Johnson said 2013 is the year of going to the gym and spending more time with family.

"Everyone in our family joined," said Johnson about her family getting gym memberships at Anytime Fitness. "So it's fun to come and spend time with the family. So it's killing two birds with one stone."

Staff at Anytime Fitness say they expect many people to sign up for memberships in the coming days, but only about 40 percent to keep coming back throughout year.

"For the first thirty days they're really into it, and then within sixty days they've kind of fallen off and we don't see them for the rest of the year," said Cody Mercado, manager at Anytime Fitness. "So our goal is to reverse that trend and keep them getting into a long-term fitness solution."

One member at the gym said he's already met his fitness goals; this year it's all about improving his business using the same tactics.

"Well you have a plan, and stick with it," said Edward Winslow. "And as you need to modify it, you do so. You have to have some flexibility."

Others agree that keeping track of measurable achievements along the way is what it takes to fulfill a resolution.

"This year I have a specified amount of weight that I have to lose every four weeks because I have to check in. So that's good incentive to stick with the program and keep going with the exercising."
