Shana Ross said she hopes the new year will bring a new beginning. 

"2019 is coming, and I need a makeover. I need something new," said Ross.  

She said for the last few years she has struggled with her weight. 

"With being in the military all those years and exercising every day, that actually kept the weight down, but I've been you know out the military now for over 20 years," said Ross.  

That is why just days before the new year she decided to sign up for a gym membership. 

"New beginnings far as not just losing the weight, but living a healthy life," said Ross.  

She was not the only person hoping to lose weight during the new year. 

"We've been busy. We just had a challenge through the holidays. A six weeks challenge with over 100 people in it. Tons of weight loss, tons of success stories and we're starting a new six weeks challenge for the new year, and we're getting sign-ups all day every day. So we've actually added, 70 classes are running each week right now," said Crunch Fitness Killeen Managing Partner Angelo Grimes.

Even those who faithfully exercise shared how their New Year's resolution also starts in the gym. 

"My plan for next year, it's becoming bigger as muscular wise. I know like people say I'm already there, but I don't feel like it," said gym goer Babila Fasel-Murillo.

"And we are, we are very steady. Lots of sign-ups, lots of people excited for our classes in the new year to start," said Grimes.  

"It's true. It's a new beginning. It's, I don't know, it's like a breath of fresh air," said Ross.
