DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - The holidays are here, and for many Brooklyn residents that means the pounds will soon follow.

Joseph Setty, who is a personal trainer at Gold?s Gym in downtown Brooklyn, says there are three things to remember to keep fit when faced with sweet and savory temptation. First, Setty says people should make it a priority to get a cardio workout up to four times a week. Second, the trainer tells clients to eat in moderation. Third, he says everyone should lift weights and walking on an incline helps.

One exerciser says she gained a considerable amount of weight this week. She?s now filling up on vegetables and protein rather than sugar-packed confections and drinking plenty of water to flush out her system.
