Ah yes, the gym, that place that many of us resolve to visit more often. January finds us fresh, enthusiastic, imaging a fitter version of ourselves. January is easy, February not so much. Life gets in the way and we rationalize reasons for 'not going today but for sure next week'. Avid Fitness owner, Tim Wall, has some advice for those of us who seem to lose our way to our fitness goals. "Work out with a buddy", Tim says. "Being accountable to someone else means you won't be able to wriggle off the hook so easily". Good advice Tim!

Avid has extended their buy one membership, get a second for half price promotion so find a buddy and sign up today!
