Help to Hold Accountability in 2024 with Bergen County’s Experts

Fitness  / 

We're just over a week into the new year. You've likely made your resolutions, and thought to yourself that this year will be the year you keep them. But once your reality sets in and busy schedules get the best of you, that's easier said that done. 

If putting yourself on the path to health and wellness tops your list of 2024 resolutions, we found some ways to help, and they come in the form of Bergen County small businesses. Training centers for a strong mind and body, restaurants with easy and healthy menu options, and empowering weight loss services will help you kick your goals into gear. Here are some clear must-visit places, and some advice from the wellness experts.


Real Deal Weight Loss 

Instead of thinking about what you have to stop eating to get your weight loss goals on track for the New Year, The Real Deal program helps you look at your diet in a more realistic way and come up with a personalized plan that works for you. Gladys DiTroia's expert-led program, teaches you life skills to support healthy eating habits so they stick, rather than losing weight quickly and in an unsustainable way. You can get access to a team of health coaches to support you along your journey so you're not in this alone, video lessons, and more.


Sacred Space Meditation in Tenafly 

The wellness and meditation center is a must-visit for enhancing your spiritual and overall wellness. Having a healthy mind is the cornerstone for a healthy body, and Sacred Space offers a number of classes to get your started, or to continue on your journey. Some in-studio classes include Signature Sound Meditation, Sunrise Meditation, Gentle Flow Yoga, and Chakra Cleanse. Plus, the whole family can get in on the mental and physical wellness through its youth meditation classes like Mindfulness for Middleschoolers and Teen Meditation that address ways to tackle the stressors kids face. 


Roots Cafe 

No healthy food does not need to taste like cardboard, and Roots Cafe, with a brand new space opening soon in Closter, is a prime example. The cafe offers healthy plant-based foods and drinks like cold-pressed juices and meals filled with fresh, locally sourced ingredients like the Quinoa Bowl, the Timeless Taco in a veggie and flax shell. The new, welcoming space will have even more seating, along with a comfortable "Roots Art Pod" and entertainment stage for special events.  


TNT Youth Programming 

It's just as important for growing kids to take care of their bodies, and TNT's Youth Training Programs are an engaging and fun way for little athletes to build a healthy foundation. The program offers age-appropriate sessions that follow five principals including awareness of the body, a positive attitude, consistency in training, great effort, and above all, fun. Workout regimens can include a warmup, injury prevention, upper and lower body stregth training, core and hip work, and a cool down, specifically catered to your child. They'll learn the proper moves to prevent injury and to move up to more advanced training.
