    This is my first "New Years" since I've started working out and losing weight, and I am absolutely dreading how packed I think the gym is going to be. Luckily, it's a 24hr gym so if it gets too bad when I normally go (4:30pm) I can always go really early in the morning.

    What about you guys? I know there's a handful of you that probably work at more BB-type gyms where it doesn't probably change as much, but man... I'm scared :hsd:

    Eh, it's really not that terrible...but it also depends on what kind of gym you are at. If it's a fitness center type of thing (Lifetime or something) I'd imagine it'd be a whole lot worse than like a regular school gym.

    But really, it only lasts for a few weeks so no biggie in the long run.

    it gets really bad at my gym... 20 minute wait for squat rack or bench standing around in crowds waiting for your shit, can't do stuff like walking lunges because there's no room, etc. All day until about 11pm at least.


    Then again SF is one of the most densely populated cities in the country so it shouldn't be that hard to believe.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it gets busy at my new gym. But whatever.

    the gym I go to is a "regular" gym, however its the cheapest place in town and has two locations. It gets packed to the gills in the afternoons. So for the past few weeks I have been changing my schedule and going at 4 or 4:30 AM to get my shit it.

    Every January F&N gets tons of threads complaining about the New Years resolution people that are working out. The threads usually end with assurance that those people would forgo their exercise routines in a few months.

    Yea it always does, January definitely sucks if you go during the peak hours... All the posers show up and trying to the new years resolution BS, but once mid February hits they will be all gone and they all quit by then and your back to the usual people you see all the time. Doesn't affect me too much since I only workout 2 days a week during peak hours rest of the time I workout after 9pm and it is usually pretty dead.

    One good thing from it is that you will see at least at the gym i goto is a HUGE influx of girls start going haha. Extra eye candy walking around trying to get in shape. Then I see the influx again right before summer time hits when they try to get in shape for swimsuit season.

    I go to a queer gym in downtown Dallas and it gets real bad in January and Feb. It seems like all the gays in a 15 mile radius make a pilgrimage there every new years. It starts to clear out in March tho.
