This holiday season many of us will struggle to battle the temptations of holiday treats. While some wait until the pounds are packed on, many are already on the road to battling the bulge.

This is the time of year when folks look to weight loss programs and gyms for a little help and motivation.

Trainers at the Powerhouse Gym say they've already seen a 70% increase in membership. Personal trainer Nalani Johnson: "We teach people how to live a healthy lifestyle, eat, workout make better choices."

The Oklahoma State Department of Health says a third of Oklahomans are overweight and at risk for health problems.
