Memberships Skyrocket at Local Gym
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) You may have noticed an overabundance of new members at the gym lately.
Memberships at the Twin Falls YMCA have skyrocketed this month.
Five hundred new members have signed up in the last fifteen days that's not including the five hundred who signed up for the Magic Valley Weight Loss Challenge.
Weight loss is always at the top of resolution lists.
"We’re helping people set goals and objectives and our strategy is to try to keep them going in March and April when they start to lose hope a little bit. But, this year we think we have a good plan to keep everybody going strong," said Gary Ettenger, Executive Director, Twin Falls YMCA.
The majority of the new memberships have been families.
Right now it's $67 a month for the entire family and that includes both gyms and all of the classes.
