Christina Hendricks, AMC's Mad Men

"I think balance in life is the key to good health. My goal in 2012 is to maintain balance by finding time to give to others. This year I partnered with LATISSE through the LATISSE Wishes Challenge campaign to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. To keep my body feeling balanced, I vow to stay rested by sleeping at least eight hours (or more!) every night."

Jennifer Hudson, Oscar winner and Weight Watchers spokesperson

"My goals for 2012 are simple -- continue to live a healthy lifestyle by eating nutritious foods and exercising regularly. The tools and support that the Weight Watchers PointsPlus program provides has helped me do that, and has given me the opportunity to really make a difference. I am a true advocate for living a healthy lifestyle, and I hope to set an example that inspires others to make the same changes that I did. If I can do it, anyone can!"

Samantha Harris, Entertainment Tonight correspondent

"With a preschooler and a baby, I hope to find a way to get to bed earlier so that I can spring up with more energy each morning when my kids wake up. I also want to be better with taking weekend walks with my husband and our girls."

Melania Trump, model and jewelry designer

"I want to have fun while working out. I love to play tennis but sometimes my schedule doesn't allow it, so I've started to run on the treadmill instead to catch up on the news. I also want to maintain my healthy diet. My most recent healthy obsession is to make myself an energy-boosting smoothie in the morning. I mix banana, ground flax seeds, liquid omega-3, vitamin D, lemon, fat-free yogurt, and orange juice to start the day off right and fill me up."

Kimberly Perry, The Band Perry

"Since time is precious, my fitness goal is to keep combining workouts and quality time. Spending time with family and friends while jogging, doing a Zumba DVD, or any other bonding activity that is good for your heart in more ways than one."

Kym Johnson, Dancing with the Stars

"I'm not going to sweat the small stuff. I want to make sure I can focus on life outside of work and make more time for my friends, my loved ones, and myself. The older I get, the more I understand that balance is the key in life."

Danica Patrick, Pro NASCAR and IndyCar Driver

"This year I want to help others get healthy through my work with DRIVE4COPD, raising awareness of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and encouraging people to get screened in honor of my grandma, who died from the disease. Moving to NASCAR full time in 2012, I hope to continue to raise my fitness level for racing. Driving requires a balance of strength and endurance. To stay strong, I'll have to lift weights, run for cardio, practice yoga, and make sure to really challenge myself during every workout."

Arianne Zucker, NBC's Days of Our Lives

"I want to stay lean and trim, and not to skip weight training because I don't have the time! My goal is to do a full workout at the gym two days a week and hike another two days for cardio. I'm also making it a priority not to stress out if I can't reach that goal every single week. Guilt is a waste of time!"

Josie Maran, actress and supermodel

"I'd like to really focus on fitness in 2012 by mixing it up between high-energy dance classes and getting outside in nature. Nothing beats a good hike on a sunny trail. I also want to maintain a balance in my life. I'll focus on exercising and eating right but will also remind myself that it's okay to sleep in and have a slice of pizza every now and then."

Kelly Stables, TV Land's Land of the Exes

"I want to keep it up this year. I have a great personal trainer and follow the three key ingredients to staying healthy -- strength training, cardio, and good nutrition. I also want to mix it up my routine with hiking, yoga, jogging, going on walks, playing softball, and doing Pilates."

Daya Vaidya, CBS's Unforgettable

"In 2012 it's all about flexibility, strength, and endurance. Since I gave birth to my daughter, my flexibility has really decreased and because I am continuously carrying her, my shoulders are starting to round. I've noticed that if I find a few moments throughout my day to take three deep breaths, it actually improves my posture. Picking up a tip from years of dancing, expanding your rip cage and breathing from your diaphragm also makes you stand up straighter! For endurance I jog regularly, but want to increase the amount of time I stretch and add in a couple of days of yoga."

Bree Williamson, ABC's One Life to Live

"I would love to cut out refined sugar. I also want to get better at juggling a consistent workout schedule and spending time with my baby. It seems I am either feast or famine when it comes to working out and, as my amazing trainer Maria Fuenmayor tells me, consistency is key!"

Kelli Giddish, NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims

"I would love to run a marathon in 2012. I think it's time, especially since I've run half-marathons. I also want to be able to do more pull-ups than my co-star, Danny Pino."

Julie Berman, ABC's General Hospital

"I like to set reasonable fitness goals so I'm more likely to keep them. One will be to drink more water. There's such a huge difference with my skin, appetite, and mood when I remember to stay hydrated. It's such an easy addition to my day, so there's no reason I shouldn't be able to make this a new habit."

I love that so many people site "balance" as a key to their 2012 fitness goals. Balance comes in many forms, I particularly love Pilates and Yoga to help balance my mental with my physical workouts.
