It's the final day of 2015  — and you know what that means — resolution time! Ugh. If 2016 is going to be the year you finally quit smoking or lose those extra 25 pounds, you're going to have to do something differently from what you've always done. It's easy to find yourself in March eating Cheetos out of the family size bag telling yourself it's not to late to get in shape for the summer; Don't waste time, get a jump on those New Year resolutions now

Here are a few places in Broward County that will help you stick to your 2016 goals, conquer them, and proudly look back at the things you accomplished this time next year. Good luck!

10. Crossfit Muscle Farm 
1255 N Flagler Dr, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
(954) 463-1889

Enough is enough; It's time to kick your ass into shape. No more meals that come in the mail. No more at-your-own-pace walks around the block. If 2016 is going to be the year you're going to see a real change, it's time to take some drastic measures — drastic measures that include the words "muscle" and "farm" in them. Crossfit Muscle Farm in Ft. Lauderdale is not where you want to start off if you need to lose 100 pounds — nooooo, you might die. This is the place you go to turn from an Average Joe into a Mikey Muscles. 

9. Wellspring Hypnosis 
1400 East Oakland Park Boulevard, Oakland Park, Florida 33334

You've tried it all and you just can't quit — so why not try something a little...well, outside of your comfort zone. Hypnosis has helped many real people quit smoking, so it can't  be total hogwash. Wellspring Hypnosis in Oakland Park specializes in this sort of therapy, and has some success stories you might wanna read up on. With some packs of cigarettes going for eight bucks these days, an investment at this shot-in-the-dark can't be more expensive than actually smoking for a month. 

8. Fort Lauderdale Guitar Teacher Dyce Kimura
109 South 57th Ave Hollywood 33023
(786) 457- 3687

If your New Years resolution is to start something new in 2016, why not learn to play the guitar? Dyce Kimura is unique in that he provides lessons both in person and online — so you have no excuses. Kimura learned to play guitar in Japan, and has a long history in the entertainment business. He also offers voice lessons, if you're trying to completely quit your day job and give John Mayer a run for his money. 

7. Whole Foods Market 
810 N University Dr, Coral Springs, FL 33071
(954) 753-8000

If your goal is to eat more organic or healthier in 2016 you don't need a fancy nutritionist, you just need a place to get the goods. Whole Foods isn't exactly farm fresh, but if you don't have time to drive north to a place like Bedner's Farms in Boynton, it'll do. If your desire is to not only watch your weight, but to make sure what you put in your body is clean — Whole Foods is easily the best, and most readily available, place to buy the things you'll need. 

6. Adopt-A-Pet Broward
1870 SW 39th Street Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315
(954) 359-1313

Many people set out to volunteer more in the new year, and Adopt-A-Pet Broward is a terrific option. If you're a pet lover, lending a hand and giving back to your community at a animal shelter is a terrific way to not only make a difference, but to relieve some stress of your own.
