Most people make New Years Resolutions each year, and they can range from getting a better job to getting in shape.

Justin Martin from Caldwell says consistency is key to health and fitness or else some won't reach those new goals.

And Justin has a goal of his own.
"I have a Spartan race coming up in May which is five miles. I just ran one which was 13 miles.So this one I want to improve get better, and run a better time than I did last year," said Martin.
January 2013 may start a new year, but for many, they hope it's also the start of a new lifestyle.
A number of local gyms in our area are offering deals to help people meet some of their fitness goals.But fitness experts say walking or running outside is always another option, and it's free.
