Busy time for local gyms

January 6, 2007

Albany -- Just six days into the new year and for many in Albany their resolutions are still working out well. The US government's website says getting healthy is the top new year's resolution for people nationwide, and hitting the gym regularly is what many locals have made their resolutions.

Even though health related resolutions are one of the most popular, they are also very difficult and often met with failure. But mother of three and grandmother of seven, Mary Dailey won't let 2007 get her down.

"I'm here to exercise some to feel good. I'll be 50 this year, so I want to be feeling good, be good, just a good year, I just want it to be a better year than ever,"said Mary Dailey.

Dailey says losing 23 pounds this year is her goal. Others say hitting the gym everyday is their goal. Fitness experts say for a resolution like working out, a person must set realistic goals, and have a plan to reach it.

"I'm going to do it. I eat Special K for breakfast and lunch. No bread. No sweets and no soda, drink lots of water," said Dailey.

For Dailey the plan is to hit the gym along with healthy eating.

January is one of the busiest months for new members at Tony's Gym. People say they find their strength here for the new year, and that's why they make working out a resolution.

A resolution that can be kept year long. Fitness experts say find a trainer, set days and times to come to the gym, and find somebody to workout with. For Dailey it's the man she married.

"I have a motivator. My husband Timothy Dailey. He works out everyday. He lives it. He dreams it. So he motivates me. He's going to help me work out on my arms," said Dailey.

As Dailey meets a milestone in life turning 50 this year. She'll make sure she's in top physical condition.

"Keeps me going, keeps me younger," said Dailey.

She'll take steps toward that goal, all year long at the gym.
