According to a Nielsen survey more than 67 percent of people say they plan to exercise more for their New Year's resolutions.

It's that time of year again for New Year's resolutions.

"I was like 'ok, I'm going to make it a habit to come to the gym'," said personal trainer, Nicholas Jessen.

Four years ago Nicholas Jessen says he wanted a new way to workout as part of his goals for the New Year.

"My friends that made the same [goal], but then they started, you know, going off like a lot of people do but I was like determined," said Jessen.

Family Wellness directors say they prepare for the increased volume. And gym goers expect longer wait times.

"A lot of cardio is going on so you can't really get on a treadmill like you want to," said Jalen Ziegler of Bismarck.

Jalen Ziegler says building a friendship with a trainer enhances the workout experience.

"You kinda already have that established connection so I trust what he say to say to me. And like I never question what he's going to tell me because I know it's going to work out," said Ziegler.

And Ziegler says that's a goal worth lifting for.

Family Wellness says it saw a 25 percent increase in gate scans after the holidays and around 80 new members joined the facility in the past 3 days.
