We all plan to eat clean, stay fit and refrain from getting drunk texting our exes.

Working out can often be a little boring and it often causes some of us to fall off the wagon and go back to eating pizza because that's clearly so much more fun. However, YYC has a bunch of fitness classes that actually might be just as fun as eating pizza, (and it won't give you major muffin top afterward.) Personally, I love to workout without feeling like I'm actually working out - and if you're like me, these fitness classes are definitely the place for you to hold on to those New Years Resolutions.
