(NAPSI)—If getting fit and staying healthy are among your New Year’s resolutions, here are a few fitness facts and figures that can help make 2013 your best year ever:

Consider these stats:

• The perennial No. 1 top New Year’s resolution in America is “losing weight,” reports the University of Scranton.

• Many gyms see a 30 percent increase in membership in January.

• Only 10 percent of people still go to the gym three months after signing up.

• The failure rate of New Year’s resolutions is 80 percent.

• Two-thirds of American adults cite “lack of time” as the reason they don’t exercise.

• Another 19 percent say they’re intimidated by the gym.

An Easy Solution

For many people, the secret to keeping this year’s New Year’s resolutions can be found in having home fitness equipment.

There are products designed for just about everyone—no matter where you are in your fitness journey. Plus, you can use them whenever you want and in the privacy of your own home. Four of the more popular are:

1. CoreBody Reformer: For ladies looking for a total body workout, this home fitness machine can be folded up into the size of a yoga mat and is lightweight enough to sling over your shoulder.
