New Year's Resolutions Boost Gym Business

“With the new year always comes the promise of a new body, and many people make a New Year's resolution to get in shape. As the year winds down, places like Gold's Gym in Harrisonburg are gearing up for 2010. ‘Well we do see an influx of people, especially around right after the first of January because they want to make New Year's resolutions, and the gym is one of them,’ says Gold's Gym Manager Kathy Koch. Koch says this time of year is great for business. ‘Absolutely. This is our busiest time of year,’ says Koch. However, it's not just gym staff that notice the increase. Gym member Jeremiah Nixon says he knows what to expect over the next few weeks. ‘A pile of people just start coming in for New Year resolutions,’ says Nixon. Nixon comes in three to four times a week and notices a difference come January 1.
