How are those resolutions going? Life Time Athletic recommends reevaluating your goals before you go any further
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Health experts at Life Time Athletic in Brookfield say that when it comes to healthier living, 80 percent of New Year's resolutions are broken by mid-February.
The number is discouraging to hear, but it doesn't mean we have to be a part of it.
They say the big problem is our goals are too generic and lofty. The fitness experts can help you pair them down and be specific with little things like introducing a serving of vegetables into a meal plan each day, or working out at least 3 days a week for 20 minutes
After a while, the good habits will hopefully start growing!
"You want measurable goals. Stepping stones, little wins. They'll help you keep going. Feeling good about yourself. Keep those resolutions," said Garrett Van Auken, assistant personal training manager at Life Time Athletic.
Life Time trainers also recommend working out with at least one person for accountability. Also, they advise taking advantage of online classes and tutorials while the virus numbers are still high, and there might be hesitancy going back to the gym for some.
