Young Adults Spend an Incredible Amount of Money on Fitness

January 23, 2018

Americans spend more money on fitness than college tuition, a new study suggests.


Investing in health and wellness is priceless for these young adults.

A new study from My Protein surveyed 1,350 US adults aged 18 to 65 and found that the average American spends $155 per month on their health and fitness, that’s $112,000 in their entire lifetime, and $13,000 more than a public four year college education which averages about $98,440.

Included in that number, Americans on average spend $33 on gym memberships, $56 on health supplements, $35 on clothing and accessories for working out, $17 for healthy meal plans and $14 on trainers, My Protein reports.

With the new year just a little underway, a reported 87% of Americans say paying for the gym or fitness classes are high priority, and some are paying much more than the monthly average.
