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 Waco businesses that will help you and the entire family stay fit, feel your best, and organize your life.

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 commitments you’ll actually be able to keep.

You can find these local spots on Towny – your hub for business deals in Waco 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!

Do you ever resolve to drink more water? Water Tree Waco makes it easy for you to stay hydrated the right way.

Who doesn’t love bouncy houses? Whether you’re a kid or an adult there is so much fun to be had at Jump-N-Place, a family-owned entertainment center spanning over 8,500 square feet, full of bounce house inflatables. There is even a toddler area so that you can feel comfortable knowing your little ones are safe. At Jump-N-Place, you’ll whip yourself (and the whole family) into shape without even knowing it!
