New Years Goals Means Spike in Gym Memberships

The new year is quickly approaching, and with that comes new years resolutions and goals.

Its also the time of year when workout gyms see an increase in business.

At the YMCA in Grand Island some people are up early and working out. For many of them its also part of their new years goals to be healthier in 2013.

"Mine is just to work out a little more and just try to stay in better shape. You get older its a little harder, but they will push you in class," said Bob Graves of Grand Island.

It's that motivation many people say inspires them to stay focused.

"If they see something you are doing wrong they help you do it right," said Graves.

Keeping you on the healthy track for the new year is one of the YMCA's goals for the new year.

"Anytime you do a New Years resolution you want to make sure you set smart goals," said Cara Lemburg with the G.I. YMCA.

Personal trainers say make the goal measurable, attainable and make it reasonable.

"And then you have a timeline to follow. Personal trainers at the Y can make sure you stay accountable and your goals are reasonable," said Lemburg.

The YMCA expects between 400 and 600 new members for the new year.

"Using our two facilities. So our goal obviously is to retain them," said Lemburg.

Lemburg says they'll do that in a variety of ways, but the most important thing is for you to stick with your goal and not get burned out in 2013.
