21 Best Fitness Blogs To Follow in 2019
As we usher in the New Year, you are perhaps one of the many who have resolved to commit to a healthier life style this time around.
I commend you for choosing to be healthier. It is not an easy feat. As early as now, consider us here at Develop Good Habits as avid supporters in your quest for good health.
Finding the time to work out or to learn a new exercise regimen can be challenging. In fact, a research done by Bodybuilding.com revealed that almost 75% of people who set keeping fit as their New Year’s resolution tend to quit before they see results.
The main reason people cannot follow through and accomplish their resolutions is that they become discouraged because they’re doing it alone. They lack the support network necessary to realize a goal.
In any undertaking, especially a new one, doing it with someone can increase the chance of success.
Get a buddy to go to the gym with you or convince a friend to start a new weight-loss program with you. And remember that we are here for you.
