A New Year can mean a fresh start for some people, starting with a resolution. Most laugh at the yearly tradition, but for some it can be the push they needed to start a new habit or break an old one.
The laugher didn’t spring from nothing though, statistically only about 19% of Canadians keep their New Year’s Resolutions the whole year. It was also shown that in 2014, about 20% of Canadians didn’t keep their resolution past 24 hours.
Over the past decade the most common resolution has been to lose weight and get fit. Anthony Ciccone is a personal fitness trainer at Argyle Good life Fitness in London; he says there is a huge increase in people looking for trainers when the New Year strikes.
However, he says that after the 31st of January that huge hull of people slowly start to thin out.
Ciccone says that he understands sticking with a resolution as difficult as getting in shape can be a challenge, but his advice to stick to your promise is to set your goals and have a plan.
