The holidays typically give way to New Year's resolutions that center on anything from saving money to getting a better job and everything in between.
Easily the most declared New Year's resolution is losing weight, and the masses undoubtedly will be looking to drop more than a few pounds once Thanksgiving and the holiday decadence that is overeating subsides and reality sets in on January 2.
How they go about it remains to be seen since you'll have plenty of options to choose from: join a gym, work out on your own with one of the million exercise DVDs that promise weight loss in minutes or by just dancing at home in your basement.
And let's not forget the home equipment industry, another billion dollar industry that is laughing all the way to the bank. The laughter doesn't come from the equipment itself being less than stellar or sub par but rather focuses on the consumer and their lack of motivation when it comes to using, not so much buying.
You see we love to buy exercise equipment. We convince ourselves that we're going to work out at home, and assure ourselves how convenient that treadmill or elliptical in their basement or bench press and dumbbells in the garage.
