With every new year comes a list of resolutions that at times can seem, well, impossible. We’ve all been there - “I’m going to do a triathlon,” “I’m going to cook at home five times a week.” So, for those of us that need a little help sustaining our resolutions, we’ve put together a list of local Acadiana businesses that will help you and the entire family stay fit, feel your best, and organize your life.

So instead of trying to conquer the unconquerable, (i.e. working out seven days a week or becoming a master chef) look to these businesses for resolutions you’ll actually be able to keep.

You can find these local spots on Towny – your hub for business deals in Acadiana that makes it easy for you to shop local and get rewarded. P.S. – if you want Towny on your phone, don’t forget to download the Towny app!
