New Years Resolutions Bring Business To Missoula Gyms

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The New Year is almost here, and people are starting to make their new years resolutions.

It's the time of year where many people are ready for some change as the new year approaches.

"My resolution, I haven't made one yet," said Peak Health & Wellness Center's  General Manager, Brenda Pollock.

"I have a little time to think about it. I usually come up with one at 11:59 on New Years," said gym member, Mitch Doherty.

Whether folks have made their resolutions or not, Peak Fitness is seeing a rise in gym goers in the last few weeks before the New Year. This will be the gym's first New Years since it opened in February.

"We have more people coming in it can be overwhelming at times," Pollock said.

Pollock can't help but think it has something to do with the new year being just days a way.

"People have that mind set of changing and building new habits, but we hope people build them and stick with them," Pollock said.

Fitness trainer Audrey Hulsey set her goals high when it came to making a New Years resolution.

"I'm running the Portland Marathon in October," Hulsey said.

Hulsey said as a trainer she's ready to work with more people when the new year comes.

"We've had a lot of phone calls about personal training packages, there's been a lot of people calling or coming wanting to get a jump start on the new year, so we do expect to see a lot more," Hulsey said.

She said you have to be careful when making a resolution when it comes to your fitness and health.

"The worst thing you can do is say I'm going to make a resolution. What you need to do is incorporate it into your calendar, into your life style, and make working out just part of your life," Hulsey said.

Either way, staff at the Peak says they're ready for the crowds.

"We look forward to having those people, and hopefully having them hang on longer than the normal six week resolution time," Hulsey said.

Some other New Years resolutions popular among the folks around town are financial improvement, and educational goals like finishing school, and career goals.

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.
