The data illustrate that while the percentage of Mint users spending at gyms does spike in February, activity remains fairly level throughout the year, ranging between 14.1% and 15.9% of users a year.
Of course, this doesn't mean the same number of people are hitting the gym all year round, since it's all too easy to buy a membership you never use.
