If you pledged to get healthier this year with yet another New Year’s resolution (or maybe even two or three resolutions), know that typically 80% of them fail by February. If you want to increase your odds of success this year though, here are some tricks to help make your new habits stick!
The Truth About Exercise and Weight Loss
Weekend anchor Marty Gonzalez on “KRON 4 Morning News Weekend” and I revealed some of the realities of exercise and weight loss. You’ve been working out regularly at the gym, so you expect those pounds to peel off as your activity increases. But it rarely works this way. There are several reasons that could be hindering your weight loss. Find out why you may not be losing weight and perhaps gaining it instead.
Why Grip Strength Predicts Your Longevity

If you have trouble sticking to your exercise program, and it’s not due to a lack of desire to get fit, then it could be because the exercise doesn’t fit your personality. Everyone has their own exercise goals and needs, that is, everyone has their own ‘fitness personality’.
