Gym rats dread wave of resolution-makers


UPI News Service, 01/04/2013 

More than half of Americans who regularly go to the gym said they dread the month of January when resolution-makers pile in and take over, pollsters said.

About 65 percent of Americans surveyed said they planned to make a New Year's resolution about living healthier -- and for many, that means joining the local gym. Though many of the resolution-makers lose interest and motivation after a few weeks, the year-round crowd can still get annoyed.

A Harris poll found 56 percent of gym rats said they at least somewhat dread January when their usually docile gym is overrun, leaving fewer machines available -- and never enough clean towels.

The Harris poll found 11 percent of Americans sign up for a year-long gym membership but quit before the year was over.

The poll surveyed 2,309 Americans ages 18 or older Dec. 17-19. Due to the type of poll conducted, no margin of error could be calculated.
