Top 5: Non-Toxic Gym Essentials

Resolutions (not mine). Drink less; eat better; take up origami; clean the car once a week; get healthy; be tidier; get more sleep.... The list goes on...

Getting to the gym surely must rank top of the New Years Resolutions poll every single year. The number of people who resolve to get back into shape on January 1st is probably unquantifiable. Over two months on and how many of those people are still there? I wonder...
