It's hard to form a new habit, harder still when it's one you don't really want to start like working out or skipping that delicious but fattening dessert. Research now suggests that whole 21-31 day advice on the Internet woefully missed the mark. 

But if you're like most Americans and can stand to lose some pounds -- if for no other reason than your long-term health -- you'll have to commit to more than a one-and-done strategy. 

Commit to Fit, the popular fitness program with a gym in Brewerytown and pop-up workout sessions at the Rocky steps and behind the Art Museum, has issued a new four week challenge "for those who are serious about losing weight, building lean muscle, and feeling better than you ever have before."

In addition to a full nutrition plan, the program will include unlimited classes and weekly pop-up challenges. The challenge begins January 14 but there's going to be a launch party on Wednesday, January 9 at their Brewerytown studio.

The party is free and the challenge itself will cost $69 for current members, $99 for non-members. For more information, including pricing for the various workout plans long-term, go here
