ALBANY, GA (WALB) - To mark the start of a new year, gyms are preparing for the rush of people making the resolution to work out more.
Workers at Tony's Gym on Westover say their membership always spikes around this time. The gym also typically stays busy for several following months.
Workers also say people are trying to get in shape, back in shape, or stay in shape.
They always strive to have advice for all members.
"If you haven't, if you're just getting started back, start slow, don't try to overdo it too soon," said Tony Powell. "Give yourself plenty of rest days, recuperation days."
Powell says it's also important to be strict with your diet and try not to eat unhealthy foods.
