Ahh, February. The time when resolutions drop, and comfort food is there to fill the void. We found some statistics on why resolutions are so tough to stick to, so you don’t have to.
Last month, we all experienced our family, friends, coworkers and in some cases, even ourselves, committing to self-improvement for the new year. As many of you may guess, the top resolution for Americans in 2017 surrounds health and fitness. The following top three resolutions are involving self-improvement. Whether it be through better financial decisions or quitting smoking for good, it seems that most Americas want to improve themselves. But what about improving themselves through their relationships with others? On this top 10 list of 2017 New Year’s resolutions, only two of them were about improving their relationships with others or doing good deeds for others. Ok, two and a half if you include “finding the love of my life,” as it does technically benefit someone else, too.
23 GYM MEMBERSHIP STATISTICS THAT WILL ASTOUND YOU
As a marketer, I can't help but think of how gyms use health and fitness trends in the new year to their advantage. At my gym, I see an influx of new members joining in January and most often leaving by March. As a longtime member of a (debatably) overpriced gym, the peaks and valleys of new membership numbers are bittersweet. As my resolution is to be more optimistic, I’m rooting for new members to accomplish their goal. The 2016 Daphne in me, who has to fight for space in the gym to stretch, can’t wait until March. To see how my gym experience matches with others across the country, check out these statistics.
WILL THE NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION SURVIVE MONTH #2?
My curiosity got the better of me this month as I decided to challenge these article’s statics. I did some primary research of my own and surveyed my coworkers who identified something they want to improve upon by the end of 2017. Perhaps I'm biased, but they’re kicking ass at achieving their goal.
