We asked you to send us your fitness-related resolutions, and judging by the response, 2010 is going to be quite a year. You're going to race 10Ks, marathons and triathlons. You're biking across Iowa and even the whole country. Brides (and a groom) vow to look better for the big day, parents want to keep up with their energetic offspring and a few folks see themselves crossing the mid-century mark in their best shape ever.

Everyone can use a little help in achieving workout goals, so we chose four of you to interview and advise: a woman seeking the time and energy to be active, a budding parkour enthusiast, a 66-year-old with health concerns hoping to start exercising again and a man who wants to do a half-Ironman triathlon. Check out their profiles, and we'll check in with them in a few months to see how they're doing. In the meantime, we hope their stories can serve as inspiration for you -- and us.
