WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It's cold outside … but today at the gym, folk were breaking a sweat.

Treadmills, ellipticals, even fitness classes were all fully today as people took advantage of the day off from school and work to get an extra workout in.

The Gold's Gym General Manager, Jeremiah Barnett, said while other businesses are closing, the gym is always open, "Everybody just came in from outside to come and get their workout in even though schools are closed, and businesses are closed, and people still want to work out. We're only closed one day a year, and that's Christmas, and other than that we're here, and we're ready for you."

The gym is operating under a normal schedule right now. If something changes, you can find the closings here.

..that are pumped up on steroids and never passed by a mirror they didn’t like. Go to the Y or WAC if you want real exercise instead of a circus.

There is a remedy for that pay cash. I have paid cash for my Gold’s membership before. If they refuse tell them you will go to O2. If they want you badly enough they will take cash.
