Get healthy in the new year with 10 resolutions to improve your health. By: Holley Johnson Grainger, M.S., R.D.
Don't dread the gym. But if you do, there are still plenty of ways to keep yourself active and moving throughout 2010. Find a friend to keep you accountable and together set realistic and achievable fitness goals. Try heading to a fitness center to join a group exercise class or hire a personal trainer. If you prefer a different setting, pop in a workout DVD or hook up the WiiFit in your living room, bundle up and head outside for a walk, or hit the yard and rake those calories away. Most importantly, incorporating resistance training and aerobic exercise into your routine(aim for 30 minutes per day) will help to maintain flexibility, improve mood, better manage your weight, and build muscle mass.
