We all know the crushing reality that comes at the beginning of every February.
You start to slip in a slump when it comes to your workout routine, and slowly stop attending those morning sweat sessions at the gym.
In fact, study shows that 60% of New-Year’s-resolution-driven gym memberships go unused, with members dropping attendance by the second week of February!
