It's easy hit cruise control in December, eat with abandon through the holiday season, and wait for the Resolutionary War to start living fit on New Year's Day. This is a common strategy, but war has claimed many ill-prepared resolutionaries. In fact, a 2012 online survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Bodybuilding.com found that, out of the 66 percent of Americans who make fitness resolutions, 73 percent of them fail!
We don't want you to become a statistic. We don't want you to fail. Nearly half of the people in the group mentioned above abandoned their goals in six weeks or less. On average, these people have given up on past fitness resolutions four times. Forty-two percent say that it's too difficult to follow a workout or nutrition plan. Thirty-eight percent say it's too hard to get back on track. Thirty-six percent say it's too hard to find time.
We say, "Failure is not an option." We say, "Success is imperative." It's time to start preparing. We've got an arsenal of content to help you wage war and achieve any fitness resolution. Look below for motivation, tips, techniques, a complete seven-day plan, and more. It's time to win the Resolutionary War. This is your year.
