Dropping some of those holiday pounds is the most popular New Year's resolution.
When it comes to joining a gym, look for a place that allows you to pay as you go, instead of per month. That's because most contracts include an automatic renewal clause, meaning you'll be charged even if you're not going anymore. Make sure to read the entire contract, even the fine print.
It never hurts to try to negotiate terms or waive enrollment fees with gym managers.
