The Calm Before The Storm
It's quiet around most fitness clubs in the States right now - anyone taking a workout pretty much has the place to themselves, the tranquil peace broken only by the occasional clatter of plates from somewhere across the building. Want to run on the treadmill for an hour or more? No problem. Take in a class? The choice is yours. In fact, you could probably spend the entire day at your local club and never once have to wait in line for anything. Yes, it's your own personal slice of heaven, isn't it?

But we all know what's just around the corner. See - here in the States, at least - January is by far the biggest sales month for fitness clubs across the country. Nothing even comes close, not by a long shot. Why? Getting into shape is tops on many New Year's Resolutions lists. Classes are full, workout stations get queued, and don't even think about getting a shower. Even though it can be aggravating sometimes, I actually look forward to the madness of it all in a warped sort of way. Sadly, it'll all be over before the end of February.

So, if you're one of those folks just joining the fitness community, we hope you feel welcome. But more than anything else, we hope you'll stick around for awhile...

Here poeple hit the gyms at the tail end of spring. In the middle of winter you can swing anything and not hot anyone in a gym.

Our gym has been hopping since November or so. The membership rates became much more attractive, and we've added more core classes that are free with the membership.

I teach Body Pump, Body Step and a few other classes, and it's great to see so many new members coming in. I fully expect to see our Pump classes maxed out...I can picture the sea of barbells now!

The gyms are busy and the blogs are quiet. No recent activity on kia-kaha either? Ideas why?
