After another inspiring Boston Marathon in the books, people are thinking about fitness goals more than ever. Whether your dream is as lofty as crossing the finish line on Boylston Street, or as achievable as a New Year’s Resolution to exercise once a week, it’s time to stark working out. But which gyms in Boston are the most popular?

Thanks to data from check-in app Swarm, we were able to find out which fitness spots people checked into the most from Wednesday, April 20 to Tuesday, April 26.

For those unfamiliar, Swarm is an app from Foursquare that lets users check in when they visit locations like restaurants, bars, and parks. The app also makes every day a game with perks like coins and mayorships, and lets users keep track of streaks and places they’ve been with an updated profile tab.


Without further ado, here are the most-visited gyms in Boston.
