New gym memberships jump in January

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash -- New Years resolution number one: Get in shape.

For local gyms, January and February are busy. Sales of new memberships jump just after New Years, as many try to get in shape and fulfill their resolution.

"I have signed up as many new clients this week," said Ganesa Cobb of Ladies Workout Express, in Yakima, "as I normally do in a regular month."

Most gyms like Cobb's rely on the winter months for new memberships, especially since in the warmer months, like June and July, most people chose outdoor activities to gyms.
