Many people have made New Year’s resolutions to get in better shape in 2013, but some current and regular gym members aren’t thrilled about it.
A new CouponCabin.com survey conducted by Harris Interactive finds 56 percent of current gym members somewhat dread the New Year’s resolution crowd. Fifteen percent say they completely dread the newcomers. The regulars feel the New Year’s resolution folks make the gym crowded and take up machines.
Don’t despair, regulars. The survey finds that 11 percent of adults have signed up for a gym membership as a New Year’s resolution and quit before the year was up. Women are less likely to give up in less than a year than men, 14 percent and eight percent, respectfully.
Eighty percent of adults who have given up on the gym within a year, did so within the first five months of signing up. Four percent quit in January and 14 percent gave up in February.
The Harris Interactive survey was conducted online between December 17 and 19, and involved 2,309 U.S. adults.
