DES MOINES - 2019 is here, but how do you plan on sticking to your New Years Resolutions?
If your goal is to get fit YMCA's across the metro are here to help.
Only 8 percent of Americans will stick to joining the gym as their resolution as YMCA's in Des Moines see a spike in their memberships starting today.
Rachel Kelderman, a wellness coordinator at South Suburban YMCA, says staff at the gyms are there to help you stick to your goals.
"If they're doing it on their own it's very hard. That's why we, as the Y, want to get them connected with group fitness classes, maybe they come in with a workout buddy, and we get them into some small group training," explains Kelderman. "We find that connecting factor for them that really helps them stick to their goals and work beyond that initial New Years Resolution and make it a lifestyle."
If you want to jump in to getting fit YMCA's are in the middle of their 12 Days of Fitness, where you can get discounts on joining. That runs until January 6, 2019.
