Nederland gym helps people get jump start on New Year's resolutions
By Leslie Rangel
What's your New Year's resolution?
We all have good intentions, but the truth is only eight percent of people making resolutions will follow through.
"I can understand that because I was one of the eight percent, but this year I'm going to make my goal,"Sandra Castille said.
So how exactly do you do that when it becomes harder to motivate yourself to go to the gym every day?
Exygon in Nederland opened its doors at 7 a.m. to help people get a jump start on their New Year's goals.
"If you dread coming here everyday chances are your not going to stick with it, so we have a wide variety of classes here find something that you like that works with your schedule and you'll stick with it," said Holly Bacon, an Exygon fitness instructor.
It's advice these friends have followed since high school and their resolution is to keep their workout routines.
"I intend to keep on doing it as long as I can," said Pat Brinkley.
"You got to stay and work hard enough to see some results," said John Dougher.
And the first step in seeing those results is getting into the routine of visiting the gym.
"I don't care if you workout hard or not, just come down here, get out of the house, get out of that chair and come down and you'll get in this atmosphere, you'll work out," Brinkley said.
A tip people here are following to start out the new year.
"I know at this time, people come in and it dies down in a few months so hopefully I won't be one of those statistics."
"It's longevity, I'm at an age now that I need to think about how long I'm going to be in this body and how well I'm going to be when Im at that age in this body."
Long term goals that start on day one of the new year.
If you're interested in joining the gym both Exygon in Nederland and Beaumont are holding a $20.14 special this month to celebrate the new year.
