Can Kijiji help you accomplish your New Year’s resolutions?

By the second week of January, most people have abandoned their New Year’s resolutions. It’s now the first day of February, do you fall into that category? Don’t despair! Kijiji is here to help.
We have identified the most popular New Year’s resolutions and come up with ideas on how Kijiji can help you achieve them.

Get Fit

One of the most popular New Years Resolutions by far is to shed some pounds and get into shape. If you are a couch potato, saying you will work out 5+ days a week may not be the best way to start. Setting managable goals, like walking to work, or attending one group exercise class a week will be easier for you to accomplish.

One of the easiest ways to get fit, especially in the cold Canadian winter, is working out at home. We have more then 3,000 listings in our exercise category. Treadmills, Bowflex machines and other high end equipment sell on Kijiji for signifantly lower then their listing price. Even a simple set of free weights can be picked up for a low price, and will help you tone muscle and burn calories in your living room. Browse our exercise section to find equipment that is right for you.
