How to keep those fitness resolutions for 2014

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Once the novelty of the new year wears off, and we get used to writing "2014," it's easy to forget about the resolutions we make to ourselves, like getting fit and staying healthy.

Gyms say there is a huge increase in membership at the beginning of January, but after a few weeks, most of the new guys and gals stop going. People get ahead of themselves when they decide to go to the gym five times a week, and soon they burn out.

"Starting somewhere with a two-day week, or three-day week program is more easily attainable than saying 'I'm going to go five or six days a week to the gym,'" says Heather Imielinski, a trainer at CrossFit Crescent Coast in Myrtle Beach.

Remembering to keep your body healthy is also a big factor. "Nutrition is about 70 percent of the way we look and feel," Imielinski believes. 

One of the problems is that too many people think joining a gym or fitness program is going to be too expensive for them. Imielinski continues, "If someone wrote down everything that they spend on take-out food, Starbucks coffee, going out to eat here and there - if they were to just add that up and spend that on a membership instead of fast food, they would be surprised at what the outcome is."

If you're planning to join a fitness studio or gym, start with less days a week to get yourself into the routine. It's better to add days in that take them out.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
