How to keep your fitness New Year's resolution

HATTIESBURG, MS -

New Year’s resolutions are a big time of year at Revolution Fitness in Hattiesburg.

“It’s been pretty dead this past week, but we expect to have hundreds and hundreds of people in here starting tomorrow,” Owner John Micka said.

According to the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA), more than 54 million Americans have a membership in a gym or fitness club.

Too often, people fall off their routine as the year goes on.

“Dedication is the main thing that keeps me going,” Revolution Fitness member Ronald Johnson said. “Once you start seeing results and you start feeling good about yourself then it becomes a part of you after a while.”

The crew at Revolution Fitness said the key to staying fit going into the New Year is maintaining reachable fitness goals.

“I don’t like to think of it as a diet or big change in exercise,” Micka said. “You need to think of it as a lifestyle change and gradually jump into it. Though resolutions are important, doing it all at once does not make for a lot of success.”

Exploring different gym options can help to save money if the gym has a contract.

“Get it where you fit in,” Micka said. “If you think the other people look like you and you want to be a part of that and you want results go to a result based gym. If you want something that’s convenient every once and a while then there are other gyms out there.”

A positive mindset can make getting in shape an easier resolution to keep.

“Nobody ever says oh I shouldn’t have come to the gym today,” Micka said. “They say I’m glad I came to the gym. I got some benefits out of coming today.”

Revolution Fitness is a no-contract and 24-hour gym facility.
