Expert advice on New Year's resolutions
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
It's the second day of 2018 and many people are making New Year's resolutions, but experts said it's easy to fall off pledges people make for themselves.
Catlin Utterback co-owns Rail Splitter Cross fit in Springfield where personal trainers help people in a variety of situations.
He said the more specific the goal, the harder it is to accomplish.
The key is to keep New Year's resolutions vague and easy to achieve.
Utterback said accountability is also key.
"So say you go to 3:30 class every day," he said. "Now, all those 3:30 people, they don't see you on a Wednesday and they're used to seeing you they're used to talking with you. They're going to miss you. They're going to see you on Facebook, send you a text and go, 'hey, where are you at today?' and you're going to not want to miss again because you're letting people down in your life.
