6. Make Exercise Fun
Who doesn’t say they want to get in the best shape of their life each year? (Guilty.) If this means schlepping to the gym at 5 am, then it’s easy to set yourself up for failure. Make this year about trying fun workouts that you’ll actually stick with: Aerial yoga, Zumba, barre classes, indoors surfing or whatever makes burning calories fun. The best part? Many of these non-gym workouts, like Zumba, Pure Barre and Tracy Anderson Method, offer workout DVDs that you can do from home -- no gym membership required.
