Residents tackle New Year's resolutions at the gymPosted: Updated:
Some residents used Monday to tackle the top New Year's resolution: exercising.
Management at the New York Sports Club in Dobbs Ferry says many people signed up for memberships on New Year's Day.
According to census data, losing weight and exercising more are the top New Year's resolutions. They're made by 50 percent of all people who make goals for the New Year.
Out of all the people who make resolutions, only 9 percent succeed at keeping and then actually achieving them. Experts say making both realistic and specific goals can help you make good on your goals.
Many gyms are also offering New Year's specials and promotions.
