Albany- The holidays could add some extra weight to your waistline. Fitness Centers including Tony's Gym were packed Friday after Thanksgiving, but that enthuasium is expected to wear off this week.

This time of year in the hustle and bustle of the holiday's people find less time to work out and more time snacking. All the snacks and treats can add up.

"About seven pounds for the average person who doesn't work out and even gym members will put on weight because they work out less and eat more," said Tim Barbree, Tony's Fitness Consultant.

Trainers suggest trying to do at least 30 minutes of a cardio workout at least three days a week. They say if you can't work out as much, each smaller portions when you eat.
