BRANSON, Mo. — Every new year, many people make resolutions to get in shape.
One man in Branson signed up at the gym for much more than just a new year’s resolution.
Managers at TR Fitness in Branson say this time of the year, business at their Mountain Grove location is peaking. But, in Branson, it’s a little different.
“Branson..it rides waves, really interesting. You’ll see people when the season ends..you see a lot of..you see a little spike, like in January, but not too much,” said TR Fitness Manager Ross Campbell, “But then in March when the on season starts happening and people start getting hired back on and things like that..that’s when you see a secondary spike.”
While many made the resolution to get in shape for 2019..unfortunately, many don’t stick to it.
“I see a lot of people kind of cold turkey quit… Overall, you’ll see two weeks resolutioners. People go hard for two weeks and then they say.. I need a break. Because they go too hard too soon,” Campbell said.
However, for Ryan Paley, quitting is not an option — because he’s in a battle for his life, against substance abuse addiction.
“I’m with CORE.. a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. I also want to work out at the gym and get my body right too..so mind and body,” said Paley, “Gym is a great place to get some structure, you know..have a workout partner…You know just getting the right help, getting the right mindset. Get your body and your mind right. It’s a new year..a new beginning.”
For all of those wanting to get it right in 2019, remember Campbell’s advise.. the key to sticking to it is don’t go too hard, too soon.
