Resolutions: Ready, set, go!

It’s been two weeks since you’ve made those New Year’s resolutions, and barely a baby step toward getting them checked off. When it comes to reaching those goals, only about 8% of people are successful in accomplishing what they set out to do.

Never fear. LivingSocial has uncovered great deals to help step up for 2015. “Do more, spend less” doesn’t have to be so daunting. Here are some smart ways you can save money while jumpstarting your resolutions.

If health and fitness are on your radar, check out the Xtreme Xfit Band or Watch, a sleek and wearable technology that lets you track your fitness 24/7. Or if you want to exercise from the comfort of home (we feel those Northeast winters), the barre3 workout DVD package and core ball and non-skid yoga towel make great additions to your training arsenal. And for outdoor enthusiasts who crave challenge, the Sunset Strip Half Marathon lets you flaunt your running game on LA’s rock and roll road. (P.S. we are constantly featuring color runs, 5ks for a cause, and other shorter-distance treks all around the country.)

Perhaps you’ve resolved to hone a hobby or diversify your downtime instead. Grab some friends and head to a local Paint Nite event where you can channel your inner Picasso over a glass of vino. More of an adrenaline junky? Get revved up with a Ferrari or Lamborghini Autocross Experience, available across the country in cities like Portland, Savannah, Richmond, Minneapolis, and St. Petersburg. And for career-minded folks, this online PMP project management certification course may be just the ticket to clinching that coveted corner office.

2015 is your year!
