More people start a new exercise routine on Monday than any other day. When asked what day of the week they were most likely to start a new exercise routine, a Data Decisions Group Survey 2017 found that people overwhelmingly chose Monday as their preferred day of the week.

People go to the gym more at the beginning of the week. Check-in data from gyms shows that people are more likely to go to the gym on a Monday than later in the week. Gyms also reported that people who come in on a Monday are more likely to come in other days of the week as well.
