As we settle into the new year, many of us are also settling into new workout routines. Exercise improves our mood and sleep patterns, according to the Mayo Clinic. It also reduces our risk for heart disease, diabetes and many other maladies. If exercise is so good for us, why is it so hard? Why do we make exercise resolutions every January and then give up by April? And how many of us think we need the right piece of equipment or the right gym environment before we even start?
