Jotting down something along the lines of "exercise more" as a New Year's resolution is pretty standard. That, and eat more broccoli. (Just me?) But according to a new data, the amount of people who want to up their workouts is at an all-time high, possibly making 2021 everyone's sweatiest year yet.

After months of uncertainty, people are ready to change something they do have control over: their health and well-being. In a survey from FYT, a personal training service, the majority of the 600 participants planned on kicking their workouts into high gear in the new year. According to the data, 3 in 4 Americans intended to exercise more in 2021 than they did in 2020. And in order to stick to those workouts, 78 percent of survey participants said they planned on exercising at home.

In 2020, we found people developed a new appreciation for at-home workouts. Over the past 9 months, the daily views of "home workouts" on YouTube increased by 515 percent—and Well+Good's fitness videos have had 350 percent more views this year than last. Aside from YouTube videos, many studios you know and love worked hard to launch online platforms that allow loyal fans to get in the same great workout from home. That includes Hot Pilates, 305 Fitness, BK Yoga Club, and more.
