Albany -- Many people headed to the stores on the day after Thanksgiving, but some South Georgians went to the gym.

 Several dozen people were at Tony's Gym in Albany Friday morning, working out.

Many admitted they ate too much during their Thanksgiving celebration and needed to exercise to work off those extra ounces. Gregg Green said "I ate about two or three times at two or three different houses yesterday. I'm here just trying to burn off some calories. That's what I'm trying to do."

Many of the South Georgians working out say they were keeping up their normal exercise routine.

 But gym officials say Monday will be their busy day, they expect to be jammed with people feeling guilty after a long holiday of indulging and eating, ready to burn off some extra pounds.
