Silver Sneakers – New Year, New You

Tips for Sticking to Your New Year’s Fitness Resolution


According to, the nation’s official Web portal, losing weight, eating right and getting in shape rank as three of the most common New Year’s resolutions made each year by Americans. Unfortunately, very few of us manage to keep our hastily-made promises. Experts recommend these tips for setting realistic expectations and attaining your goals:

  • Focus on one day at a time. Instead of promising to “get in shape”, commit to waking up, putting on your tennis shoes and going to the gym.
  • Don’t focus on your resolution as an unbreakable promise to yourself, but as a positive statement about possibilities.
  • Make your resolution known. When we announce our intentions to others, it can help us stay committed by giving us accountability.
  • Make a specific plan that is measurable.
