ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Many of us who've celebrated the holidays with parties and food may have a little extra weight to work off come the new year. 

Some studies estimate the average American gains between 1-to-3 pounds over the holiday season.

And as the year comes to a close, many gyms are running specials to attract new applicants. Gym owners say they're seeing an increase in memberships.

"People in this day and time, they realize that they really have to take care of themselves and stay healthy, and you know, really exercise year-round," said Gym Owner Tony Powell.        

Powell says those who haven't worked out for a while should take it easy during the first few workouts.

He also encourages people to find workout partners or sign up with a trainer to stay motivated.
