Tips to sticking to your healthy New Years resolution

If you're having trouble keeping that New Year's resolution to get healthy in 2019-- we've got some tips to help you get back on the wagon!

Experts suggest finding a buddy.

A friend can hold you accountable.

Quincy YMCA Marketing Director Michelle Terwelp says it's also important to find an activity or type of exercise you enjoy.

"If you like doing cardio or you like doing weights. Switch up your routine. If you get bored doing one thing -- do another. Keep changing it so you keep doing it," said Terwelp.

If you're limited on time...there's a new kind of workout called Tabata.

Tabata cycles through exercises like lunges for 20 seconds on and 10 seconds of rest.

"It's quick, it's easy. There's Tabata Apps on your phone you can download. You can do ten minutes, an hour, however much you want to do...and however hard or easy you want to, too," said Tabata Instructor Heather Williams.

Speaking of fitness, the YMCA is offering its annual Super Bowl Workout this Sunday from noon to 3 before the Big Game.

The event offers free, family-friendly classes to everyone in the community.

There will also be a bounce house and FREE childcare so everyone can get a workout.

The YMCA says they offer the event every year to promote family fitness.
