Melissa Gorga decided to kick off the new year the right way, with a little workout in the gym. It's no wonder The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has such a killer body!

Melissa took to Instagram to share a picture of herself mid workout.

"Start the new year out right! @alinabranda_ jnafit#workhard #playhard #pushhard," she wrote next to the photo.

We're not sure what the exercise is exactly, although she appears to be pushing a heavy piece of equipment, with an additional weight thrown on, across the matted floor.

A lot of people flock to the gym come January, ready to take on their self-assigned New Year's resolutions, but by February or March, the motivation fizzles out and there's no waiting list for the elliptical machines anymore. But, we can be sure that Melissa will stick to her goals all year long.

Melissa will need to be in good shape for Season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey when she gets in the ring with a brand new rival. The feuding may be over between her and sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, but rumor has it that Melissa is now battling with newcomer Amber Marchese and it's not pretty.

Considering Amber has a fitness brand of her own, we're guessing she's pretty fit, so we're sure Melissa wants keep up with her new rival. When you're a Jersey Housewife, you can never let your guard down!
