Why do people drop out of the gym?

A huge number of highly motivated people join the gym but only a handful of them continue—let’s explore why.

THERE’S NO TIME

Everyone has time constraints, hence most people stop committing to crunches and curls when they feel a literal time crunch. So gym is put on hold and people slip back into their busy lives.

TOO MUCH WORK

The first days at the gym are always the hardest as the body adjusts to its new regiment. So it’s often that people’s bodies give up, as they tend to be unproductive for the rest of the day. It gets much better after a few days, but most people drop out of the gym before reaching that point.

I’M NOT DOING IT RIGHT

People want instant gratification but unfortunately gyms don’t work that way. In fact, you might even gain some weight in the first few days despite all the cardio. And while all of the constricted body fats start to loosen up and burn out of the system—the wait demotivates people. 

RUNNING OUT OF MONEY

The initial adrenaline convinces you to make the advance payment for your fancy gym. But some gyms cost a lot and it can sometimes be tedious to consistently allocate a portion of your income for the gym. So, you decide to invest the money elsewhere or decide to workout at home, or so you say to yourself.

OUTGROWING THE GIMMICK

Some people only go to the gym out of peer pressure. They often don’t realise the commitment it takes to continue with this daunting task. After a good few social media posts, they sign off from this chapter of their lives.
