New Year's resolution to exercise is quickly given up on

Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions, and getting in shape is close to the top of the list.  

Getting in shape is a popular New Year’s resolution, but fitness experts say it is one that a lot of people give up on quickly.  

The folks at Anytime Fitness in Killeen said they see a huge jump in business in January due to New Year’s resolutions, but by the end of the month, people stop coming to the gym. 

They said many factors cause people who make New Year’s resolutions to quit, but intimidation, high expectations and lack of patience are the leading reasons.

“People come in here and say, New Year’s resolutions, I'm gonna quit this and I'm gonna stop this and I gonna lose 40 or 50 pounds. When in essence all you have to do is just get up that day and do something different, whether it’s go to the gym or walk around your block,” said fitness trainer Abel Loredo. 

Abel is a trainer at Anytime Fitness in Killeen and is also an amputee who says, you can’t let obstacles stop you from achieving your goals.
