WEAK-WILLED Brits have been flock­ing to sell their ex­er­cise equip­ment af­ter giv­ing up on New Year get fit res­o­lu­tions. Clas­si­fied web­site

saw a record num­ber of fit­ness gear go up for sale, peak­ing last month.

Fig­ures show there was a 62 per cent month-on-month rise in the num­ber of health-re­lated ads, with nearly 9,500 listed in the ‘Gym Equip­ment for Sale’ cat­e­gory.

On Jan 22, 418 items were posted within a few hours.

Equip­ment cur­rently listed in­cludes 828 tread­mills, 2294 weights, 494 row­ing videos, 829 ex­er­cise bikes and 65 Zumba DVDS.

Hamish Stone, from the site, said: “The rise in ‘get fit’ equip­ment up for sale in Jan­uary is a sure sign we’re not stick­ing to our New Year res­o­lu­tions.”
