Fit­ting in

The Glengarry News - - New Year's Resolution -

Jim Den­ni­son ex­pects a sea­sonal spike in busi­ness at his Body Break Fit­ness Cen­tre in Alexan­dria.

Get­ting into shape is one of the most com­mon New Year’s res­o­lu­tions.

Plus, as peo­ple make travel plans and en­vis­age them­selves in swim wear, they pledge to start work­ing off the ex­tra kilo­grams they put on dur­ing party sea­son.

“I see an in­crease of ten to 20 per cent in cus­tomers. I would say about five per cent of them stick with it,” says Mr. Den­ni­son, who set up the gym on Anik Street five years ago.

His clien­tele runs the gamut. On a re­cent day, a man was leisurely ped­alling a bike, while a wo­man was sprint­ing on a tread­mill, an­other was do­ing re­sis­tance train­ing and two women were stretch­ing.

“There are some peo­ple who come here be­cause they just want to stay mo­bile. You have the col­lege stu­dents who have al­ways been into fit­ness and an older mother who is try­ing to stay in shape,” ob­serves Mr. Den­ni­son.

HAPPY PLACE: Ch­eryl Baron loves the tread­mill at the Body Break Fit­ness Cen­tre in Alexan­dria.
