Successful fitness resolutions begin with small changes, experts say | Health


At Deliberately Fit in Taos, owners Rosa and Brannon Badeaux saw an influx of new members in the first weeks of January. Rosa said it’s the first time they’ve seen such an increase in January in their 10 years of running the gym. It’s more typical for the bump to take place in February, but either group at any given time is sure to include people who want to follow a New Year’s resolution to get in better shape.

At Deliberately Fit, people who join as members can access the gym 24 hours a day and design and implement their own fitness programs. There are also personal training clients, some of whom want help designing an appropriate program, while others want help every time they exercise to make sure they have the right form and intensity.
