THE BRONX - Plenty of gyms in the Bronx were expected to be packed with people during the first week of January, including the Retro Fitness location in Claremont.

Employees at the Third Avenue gym say that while they see a large number of signups at first, the workout itch seems to fade for many new patrons.

The employees usually expect a three-month turnaround on new signups. They say they come in full of resolve at first, and then eventually fizzle out.

They also suggest seeing a doctor or nutritionist to keep up with healthy changes.
