Americans lose more than a third of their planned workouts, according to new research.
A new survey of 2,000 Americans found that getting to the gym can be quite difficult, and that sportswear could play a more important role than you think.

While the study showed that Americans lose a lot of workouts, almost all respondents (92 percent) said they would be more likely to go to the gym if they had sportswear that they really liked.
Having modern and functional sportswear is an important factor for active Americans, as 69 percent worry that others will judge them for not dressing properly when they exercise.
Unfortunately, 67 percent of respondents feel that their current sportswear is unsuccessful, and 32 percent say it is a big reason why they stay home on gym day.
Other reasons to skip a solid sweat session include running out of clean training clothes (31 percent), not just feeling comfortable (30 percent), feeling bad (29 percent), work stress and deadlines (29 percent) ) and stay up late last night (30 percent).
The study, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Trunk Club, analyzed training excuses among 2,000 Americans and found that 7 percent do not even make an effort to prioritize exercise when the temperature begins to drop. In fact, two out of five lose workouts because they are too busy to find time to sweat.

Excuses for not reaching the gym are very common. Thirty-six percent of those studied said they blamed inclement weather as a reason to miss an exercise class, while another 35 percent said they were too tired. Fifty-five percent avoid exercising because they struggle to find time during Christmas chaos to sweat in the gym.
But that's not all that prevents Americans from doing those workouts during the brutally cold months. Fifty-three percent have the excuse of repeating themselves that they will start again tomorrow, but they never really succeed. And half of those studied have the excuse of lacking warm training clothes, while another 71 percent say that if they had better exercise clothes, they would exercise more frequently.
“Dressing for exercise should be the least stressful aspect of fitness. There is an overwhelming number of active clothing brands to choose from and options may vary depending on the type of training that interests you, "said Maggie Mee, director of marketing for Trunk Club.
