This might come as a surprise, as a recent research has revealed that 50% of those who use a gym for fitness do not take their gym routine seriously. Some of them do not even break a sweat.

The research showed that gym goers seem to have other things on their mind which drives them to the gym. Some of the key drivers to visit the gym were spending time chatting, making new friends or simply ogling at the opposite sex.

Funnily enough, some of gymmers came out with flimsy excuses for not keeping up to any form of fitness regime at the gym. Some women said it spoils their hair-style and make-up.

Some of the interesting reasons why people sign up to a gym are: One out of 10 gym goers were simply too embarrassed to be seen perspiring. 25% would rather spend more time in the hot tub or sauna. One in 10 wants to look their best to meet potential partners. Some wish to just relax by the pool or watch sports channels on the television. There were others who just signed up to a gym to appear trendy, hip and happening.

Some of the users were too shy to ask for help with new equipment, as they did not want to look stupid. Only 50% of those who go to the gym set out to achieve the main purpose of joining one- to stay fit. Sad but true.
