It's new year's resolution time, which means the first of the year you can always expect a big crowd at the rush.

"Normally classes are 6 to 10 people in the mornings you reach number that are 20 to 30 and more, so its hugh at the being of the year," says yoga instructor Andria Murphy.

Every year thousand of people make that new years resolution to hit the gym and get the body they've always dreamed of.
But for many, come february or march, that new body glow has lost it's luster.

"I think the word new years resolution kinda destines you to fail at it so i'm starting before the new year, a mental thing," says Rush member Anna Weatherstone.

A mental thing that's got Weatherstone in the gym getting the most out of her membership, "I want to keep my motivations and determination up so i can come in here and actually workout."

So how do you reach the fitness goals your looking for?

Fitness experts say to first pick a time that you can consistently come in and stick to it, then make sure that your routine properly suits your body type and finally adjust your daily diet to aid in meeting those fitness milestones.

"People have the hardest time changing their diet. So its always best to excerise first start with nutrition second, start with portion control and then start to change the foods that you eat," says Murphy.

Don't get discouraged. Trainers say it's important to realize that working out is a lifetime commitment.
By pacing yourself Murphy says you can really get the results your looking for, "You have to gradually progress it and stay with it. Timing is important and the regiment that your doing is important. f you don't like the time if you don't like the regiment your not going to stick with it."
