New Year, New You

By Daniela Apeloig

We counted down, the ball dropped, the Champagne corks popped. Did 2011 feel like every other New Year? Then that means you’re saying to yourself: I want to exercise more. I want to start eating healthy. I want to lose weight. I want to sleep better. Any of these New Year’s resolutions sound familiar?

New Year’s resolutions are often about our bodies—get fit, get thin, get sleep. They are the most common and the easiest to break, so we’ve got some great fitness products and gadgets that will help you stick to your resolutions. Exercise AND have fun like a kid with the Xbox Kinect game, get a pair of toning shoes that actually look like sneakers instead of Neil Armstrong’s moonwalkers, even put your money where your mouth is—literally!—with an online “contract.” Happy New Year, and good luck!
