Albany -- It's that time of year again. "My New Year's resolution is to quit smoking," said Michael Jones.
"I've been working out off and on for a couple of years inconsistently. So this is a New Year's resolution to be more consistent and do three to four workouts a week," said Jesse Hampton.
And you can expect for your local gyms to be packed.
"The number of people working out really increases. We have a lot more people joining the club in the month of January. So there is a lot of increase in workouts,"said Tony's Gym owner, Tony Powell.
But not for very long. "Normally in April it starts to die down just a little bit," said Powell.
What does it take to be one of the ones who will keep their fitness goals well into 2008? "Well the biggest thing is to start," said Jones.
"The best thing for them to do is to start out slow. Work out in moderation and than gradually increase the intensity. And if someone can stick with it for the first 30 days, then normally they will stick with it throughout the year," said Powell.
"As you start to see little things progressing in your health and in your body that will give you the motivation to keep going," said Jones.
Recruiting a friend will not only hold you accountable, but will also make the experience fun. "Having my uncle here is an inspiration to workout more frequently," said Hampton.
"It's good to find a partner that is as sincere as you are to keep you going," said Jones.
Whether you are with a friend or going it alone, find comfort in knowing you are among thousands trying to accomplish better health for the New Year.
