Many make a resolution to get fit when the new year comes.

"It's really when the gym picks up as opposed to the summer when everyone's outside," said Taylor Oglesbee, fitness manager, Crunch Fitness.

While most have good intentions, it can be hard to stick to a healthy lifestyle.

"A habit is a habit is a habit whether it's good or bad. It takes 21 to 30 days to get into good habits," said Oglesbee.

"We want you to get into a nutrition program that's something that you can eat cleanly on, but also not take away food that you enjoy right because something that's bland, boring and tasteless, are you really going to follow it, I mean lets be honest, no, no human will unless you're absolutely forced to right which is not realistic."

Being held accountable is important to sticking to a workout plan and fitness isn't one size fits all says Angie Williams, group fit manager, Crunch Idaho locations.

"Find the workouts that you really enjoy. That's the biggest thing when people come to me and say, I hate exercising. You haven't tried everything. You have to find something that makes you happy, something you enjoy and something you don't dread doing. I truly believe there's a workout for everyone," said Williams.

Oglesbee says high intensity interval training is something that anyone can benefit from because it gets your heart rate up and gets your body into fat burning mode.
