Recession Good News: More Working Out Than Eating Out

Posted on April 18th, 2009 in exercise, weight loss | 1 Comment »

Even though the recession is relative (you only have to participate if YOU want to) there is good news... and from the media of all places :).

A recent poll of gym owners and members shows an increased trend of those visiting the gym to workout in this economy. 84% of those polled said that now is the best time to invest in their health and workout.

The trends also show people are spending less on entertainment and eating out.

Many gym owners are seeing full classes and more members working out than in the past. LifeTime Fitness in particular has seen a rise of 13% in new memberships and Town Sports showed club usage up 15%.

These are great trends and I hope to see them continue. If you wanted to learn more about how to workout at home, without the costs of a gym membership or expensive equipment, check out Roger's Lightning Routines.

To your best health!
