The new year is right around the corner and for many people, this will involve making a set of resolutions, with losing weight and exercising as high priority items on the list. Often, we think of exercise as involving the gym and we hold ourselves in comparison to bodybuilders or marathon runners.

If you are a novice at fitness, use the tortoise as your role model. It isn’t fast or necessarily pretty, but the tortoise has its own exercise area at the zoo and uses it regularly.

Remember who won the race against the hare? Consistency is the key to achieving whatever resolution you set.
