by Michael Buckley - Jan 13, 2014

The last time I joined a gym a couple of years ago I was good for the first month and then ended up paying for six months of a gym membership I didn't even use. Do you have any advice on how I can keep my New Year's resolution?' - Kate L., East Stroudsburg, PA (more...)

by Michael Buckley - Nov 06, 2013
