Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a safe, fun, relaxing, fulfilling holiday season!

New Year, new members.  We've seen the trends where a new member shows up right around new year with the intention of becoming fit/healthy, only to quit a few days or weeks later.  We've seen how busy the gym gets when there is an influx of new members. Most of the regulars at the gym are happy when these people leave so that things can return to normal for them.  For most people who works out regularly, the frustration is in the lack of available equipments as well as seeing the uneducated masses trying to figure out what to do.
