COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Americans could be wasting up to $319 per year on unused gym memberships they haven’t yet canceled, according to new research by MyProtein.
The report includes a survey from 500+ U.S. residents at the start of 2022 and shows how many people chose to join a gym or fitness studio at the start of the year, how many have kept up the habit, and how much money they may be wasting on unused memberships:
- 36% of Americans had signed up for a gym membership or studio pass in January 2022
- 34% of those who signed up had stopped using their memberships by the end of the year
- More than 27% of Americans drifted away from their membership after just six months
- 9% struggled to keep up attendance past the two-month mark.
The survey also found that the average gym membership costs around $29 per month.
