5 New Year's Fitness Resolutions That You Won't Quit

Lisa Patulny

It’s only day four of 2016 and already I've read dozens of stories on how to set and achieve my health and fitness goals this year. (The best approach IMHO? Follow the S.M.A.R.T approach and make your aims specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-related.) Even if you do manage to keep this advice in mind, fitness goals more than any other can tend to be quite lofty. Case in point: I've previously felt that 365 days were more than enough to "finally get a set of abs", until I actually started down that road. (FYI, waving away the bread basket for 52 weeks is one heck of a challenge.) If this rings true for you too, don't give up before you even start. We’ve pulled together five very achievable fitness and health goals that you won’t quit… because you’ll want to chase them. Yep, even after January’s temporary boost of motivation wears off.
