If you’ve committed to drop a pant size or two in the new year, you’re not alone. Weight loss was the top new year's resolution made in 2015, with 38% of people who made a resolution choosing it as their end goal. While the surge in gym traffic this time of year is a common complaint among fitness buffs, we’re all for people who want to improve their health and wellness. In fact, we encourage it, and there’s no better time to get started than right now. Literally. Here’s why…

Someone You Know Wants to Lose Weight, Too
With statistics like those listed above, it’s inevitable that someone in your network will be working to shed some weight come 2017 as well. Ask them to be your accountabilibuddy! Set goals together, check in with each other, and motivate each other throughout the journey. You definitely don’t have to do this alone!

You’ll Pay Less for Your Gym Membership
If you really plan on committing to the #fitlife, you’ll get a heck of a deal by signing up for your membership in December or January. Gyms tend to take advantage of all the new year’s resolutioners because they know that a great majority of them will rarely (if ever) use their memberships, despite good intentions. If you are confident that you will get your money's worth throughout the year, try to negotiate a 12-month pass at a lower monthly rate. Once everyone’s fitness fever cools down in February, you’ll truly reap the benefits.

You’ll Have the Pick of the Gym Litter
Since most gyms are working overtime to sign on new members during December and January, it’s a great time to shop around. Rather than choosing your fitness center based strictly on price, you’ll be able to get trial memberships to test the water. Then, once you’ve narrowed down your options, you can negotiate with them for the best pricing. Nothing is set in stone. Let them compete for your business, not the other way around.

Truth is, 67% of people who have a gym membership never use it, and gym owners are well aware. If you are willing to commit and negotiate, you’ll end the year with skinnier jeans and fatter pockets.
