Popular gyms in the U.S. have seen significant growth. But is it due to a sudden ambitious surge towards fitness? Or have gyms become more in tune with the real intentions of their potential members? Every January, a whole new flurry of New Year’s Resolution memes and jokes circulate the internet, so how is your local gym actually responding to new members (and current ones)? Here are 41 surprising gym membership facts and fitness statistics that are shaping the health industry.
As you can see, January is notoriously the busiest time of the year for not only gym owners, but personal trainers, supplement companies, and other individuals and facilities that operate in the fitness industry. Unfortunately, you can’t count on members who join early in the year to actually follow through with their goals and show up consistently since they drop out within only a few months of joining. And the last fitness statistic in this group shouldn’t be a real surprise since dedicated gym members who go more consistently are suddenly waiting in lines for machines and wondering where all the clean towels went in the locker room.
