WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The first week of the new year is officially finished. For many people, it consisted of lifestyle changes and healthy habits.
According to one study, about 80% of people fail to stick to their New Year's resolutions for longer than six weeks.
Parkwest Fitness employee Branden Kuxhausen said the gym is busier this time of year.
"We have a lot of big-time people here, big-time fitness people who actually started with New Year's resolutions many years ago," said Kuxhausen.
He said if you're unsure how to do something, ask for help and if you really want to commit to a healthy lifestyle, you have to do some work outside of the gym too.
"You wouldn't put Kool-aid inside of your gas tank, so our bodies are the same way you want to feed your body with good nutrition," said owner of Boiler Fit Nutrition, Jimmy Stewart.
Boiler Fit Nutrition is West Lafayette's newest nutrition club.
Knowing what to eat can be one of the hardest parts of a fitness journey and that's where Stewart comes in.
"I would put them on the program depending on what their needs are and at that point, let's just say someone is looking to lose weight, I'll get them on the program that's gonna help them lose weight as well as helping them meal prep and diet. Also, different ways to implement exercise," said Stewart.
Both Stewart and Kuxhausen agree when it comes to taking care of your body, you should never stop learning.
