About 90 Percent Fail To Keep New Year's Resolutions

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The end of January can mean the beginning of losing your motivation to stick with new year's resolutions to get healthy.

Personal trainers say 88 percent of people fail to keep their resolutions for the entire year.

They say holidays, vacations and weekends can be stumbling blocks for everyone.

However, the trainers at Workout Anytime in Bowling Green say it doesn't have to be that way.

"You can't get instant gratification unfortunately. You can gaining weight -- you can gain weight really fast -- but losing weight takes discipline and hard work. In the long run, you will live longer and be healthier, hopefully get off medications, things like that -- beat diseases that might be in your family history. You just have to keep it up and keep coming in," said Candice Shubbuck, a personal trainer.

She says one thing you can do is treat working out like another job -- have a set time you know you have to go in and go.

Shubbuck also said they've had 1,500 people sign up at the new location on Scottsville Road since it opened a few weeks ago -- a sign that people in town are staying motivated.
