Gym memberships are not used as much as expected. Only 25 percent of investors exercise at a gym while most exercise either at home or outside. Thirty five percent of investors exercise outdoors, and among those ages 51 to 60, that percentage increases to 42 percent. (Of course, if those investors live in the snowy northern part of the country, they have been dissuaded from exercise this year.) Another 32 percent of investors exercise at home. As income decreases, the likelihood of exercising at home increases.
