Your Gut is NOT a muffin and other New Year's Resolutions

It’s that time of year again, ladies, New Year’s Resolution time, and likely a fitness goal is in the mix. The biggest barriers to accomplishing that fitness mission tend to be maintaining motivation and injuries. Seeking out a trainer or a fun class can be the source of the much needed fire under your bum, but it can also be the source of the injuries.
