New Year's fitness resolutions

Posted: Updated:

The party is over and people are getting a head start on their New Year's resolutions by hitting the gym.

Employees at Gold's Gym said that the next few months will very busy in most gyms, but the key to make sure you meet your 2014 fitness goal is to be consistent.

For two years Grant Grantham said he's seen Gold's Gym really busy in January and February, and then die off towards March.

"The biggest thing is remaining consistent. Set a goal to do something every single day and just stick with it," Grantham said.

15-year-old Destiny Ware is starting 2014 with her health at the top of her list.

"I want to be healthier," Ware said.

She went to the gym and got on a treadmill for the first time.

"I'm going to come to the gym at least like two days a week with my aunt and cut off fast foods," she said.

She said girls her age deal with image insecurities all the time, and she doesn't want to be one of them.  

"Girls are insecure and stuff about their weight and I just don't want to feel like I'm fat all the time," Ware said.

Not every new years fitness goal is about losing weight.

Lucas Grant said in 2014, all he works out for is his health, and to get in shape.

"The more you exercise the better off you are because you got high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity. Things that would help with that is coming to a gym and exercising," Grant said.

Many gyms like Gold's waive membership fees and offer discounted personal training sessions or they offer challenges to encourage people to exercise.
