  • Keep up with doing the treadmill
  • Make more healthier choices
  • Be pain free

Improving ones self is never an easy undertaking but these people have lofty goals to improve their lives in 2015!

New Experiences
Whether it's trying something new or going somewhere new (or a little bit of both), these people are spicing up life with these resolutions.
  • Take a real vacation!
