Well Glasgow it’s now 2016 and we’re all sick to the back teeth of that old cliche “New year new me!” Pfffft, yeah yeah we’ve heard it all before.

Last year you were giving up booze for the month – Ha! Like that was ever going to happen! The year before that was the fags but here you are still smoking your 20 deck of Sterling Fresh Burst every day. What about that diet you were going start 5 years ago? Aye, it all sounds a bit familiar! Maybe it’s time to make a change though, maybe it’s time to start injecting a bit of sweat into your lifestyle (And no…I don’t mean a night out at the subbie!). Instead of saying all that shite about getting fit and healthy go out and actually do it!

To help you we at GlasgowLiving have found the perfect ways for you to make a change to your lifestyle this January. Jump on the bandwagon!
