Arms were flexing and weights were dropping,
as people hit the gym hoping to start their new year's resolutions out on the right foot.
Toni Hyrup is a new member at Gold's Gym and says for her it's not a resolution it's a goal. "I have baby weight to lose and I am going to do it." says Hyrup. General manager Cole Christensen says gym attendance at the first of the year increases by almost 50 percent.
"We see on average about 2,000 workouts a day we figure that to go up to about 3,000 workouts a day in January," says Christensen.
Just down the street members of a different kind of club gathered on the first day of 2009 to make sure their year is prosperous.
Father Albiero Herrera–Ciro will give three masses in Spanish at St. Joseph Church before the day is over. He says there is always a good turnout on the first. He says it's a day to give thanks to God and celebrate the coming year.
It's the start of the new year and people are already getting a jump on those new years resolutions but there is one thing they say they can't live without. And that is coffee.
