UTICA, N.Y. — A new year means it’s time to make new resolutions.
According to Forbes Health, the biggest goal for 2024 is to improve your fitness and health.
At the beginning of the year, gyms typically see an increase in membership as people look to start the new year with a healthier lifestyle.
This is a common goal for many people across the United States almost every new year.
They found that despite a high percentage of people setting fitness goals, only 13 percent of people achieve their goals after four months.
Eric Fredsell, owner of The Fitness Mill, has noticed an increase in membership since late 2023.
“This year, we had many new members register from October to December. We received more applications for the new year than in the spring and summer. It’s always a new year and a new person,” Fredsell said.
One of the biggest problems keeping you from achieving your healthier lifestyle goals is a lack of consistency in going to the gym.
One way to stay consistent is to find ways to make your gym routine easier.
Sam Davey, a gym member, said: “Coming here right after work helps me stay on track. I leave the house at 4 o’clock and already have my gym bag ready so I can be there straight away.” I just head to the gym.” That way I don’t have to run home so I can get home early and that’s a big part of my daily routine. ”
Many people think they have to do more than just show up, but it’s actually one of the most important steps.
Going to the gym multiple times a week can have great benefits.
“Be consistent. Instead of sticking to a specific workout, it’s all about being consistent and doing it three to four days a week. It’s just showing up. Showing up is probably the most important first steps,” said gym member Joseph Yagy.
Achieving these health goals may take time, but solving the problem requires consistency and good habits to achieve a healthier lifestyle.
According to a recent Forbes Health/One Poll survey, more than half of Americans abandon their New Year’s resolutions within the first three months.
Almost half of Americans say they want to improve their fitness in the new year.
