It’s always one of the top New Year resolutions - hitting the gym and losing those extra pounds gained over the holidays.

By 10:30 Wednesday morning, the ACAC in downtown Charlottesville was already full of people trying to start their New Year on a healthy note. Personal trainers say it's their best month of the year, but getting people to stay with it is challenging.
