The Legend of the January Gym Rush

Jan 25, 2022

New Year’s + Resolutions for Weight loss = new gym memberships.

The above formula refers to what is known as the “January gym rush,” and it’s hardly a myth. Traditionally, gym memberships and exercise programs skyrocket in the first month of the New Year as individuals set goals for a fresh, new start.

Occasionally, this uptick in membership gives newbies a bad rap, as hardcore exercise enthusiasts may view them as fair-weather fitness amateurs who aren’t in it for the long haul. (For good reason: approximately half of all who join a gym or fitness studio at the first of the year cancel within 6 months.)

For those who have been pursuing a healthier lifestyle regularly for many years, now, the “threat” of the January gym rush may seem a bit daunting – from a crowding standpoint to accessibility concerns. But there is an alternative! Choosing a private training studio ensures that you never have to vie for attention with an influx of new trainees.

Here are just three ways a private training studio makes the concept of the January gym rush a moot point.

  1. Undivided attention: Certified personal trainers will create a customized fitness regimen based on your strengths, goals, and unique health history. Throughout your session, you will receive complete, individualized instruction that is tailored to your wants and needs.
  2. Unlimited access to the best equipment: No waits, no lines, and no intimidation. Just state-of-the-art workouts using the tools that fit your fitness needs, whenever you need them – for however long.
  3. A calm, collected, pristine atmosphere: In-studio private workout suites are professionally cleaned and sanitized between sessions, and allow for complete immersion in your workout.
