(CNN)Have you made a New Year's resolution?

If you have, you're in good company: according to most estimates about one in two people do.
    Losing weight, being more organized, saving money, enjoying life and getting fit usually top the charts, but sticking to the plan is hard to do: as little as 8 percent of people, according to a study by the University of Scranton, fully achieve their goals.
      But we can offer a little bit of help: using #GetFit2016 we asked what your fitness goals were for the year ahead and you responded with plenty of ideas -- from getting ripped to changing your mentality, becoming a vegan and everything in between!
      To steer you in the right direction, we consulted two fitness experts -- Dalton Wong, founder of Twenty Two Training, and Sara Cecil, Lead Sport Psychologist for the English Institute of Sport.
      Here are your top fitness goals for 2016 -- now go get 'em!

      1. Work out more

      Whether you're lifting weights, running up steps or doing squats, working out was one of the most popular fitness goals.
      "We always tend to wait until tomorrow to start exercising, wait until next week to stop drinking or wait for just one more meal before we start the diet," says Wong. But it's so much better to start immediately -- so set aside distractions, stop making excuses, and get started.
