New Year's marked the end of a six-week long holiday season. You ate, you drank and you were merry. Now that you're back to life as usual, you may be realizing that your pants are a little snugger--and you may be feeling extra motivated to hit the gym.
When you were a kid, falling down was no big deal. You'd skin your knee, apply a bandage and move on with your day. But as you get older, falling down can take a heavier toll on the body.
