Happy New You!

Health clubs that help you get -- and stay -- fit in 2009

If you make the same vow every January -- this is the year I'm going to get in shape! -- it's time to go beyond the resolution and make it a reality. Two Chicago health clubs are doing their part to help you get fit -- all you have to do is show up.

At Exhale Chicago in the Gold Coast, the new year is a great time for transformation. From Jan. 1 through Feb. 15, if you spend $150 on Exhale's spa therapies, mind/body classes, memberships or in the retail boutique, you'll get a complimentary add-on treatment with a facial or a pass for a yoga session or the wildly popular Core Fusion class. 

If you want your workouts a bit more hardcore, check out GOTIME Gym in University Village. There you'll find a fitness and training facility that integrates boxing and martial arts into an overall workout plan. Several discounted memberships and specials are being offered in time for the new year through Feb. 28. For general memberships, which includes gym access and basic fitness classes, as well as combat memberships, featuring training in GOTIME's regulation boxing ring with professional fighters along with access to the gym and all basic, boxing and martial arts classes, the usual $95 sign-up fee is waived. New members will also receive a free one-on-one personal training session.

How's that for motivation? So, we want to know: What's your New Year's resolution?
