(WXYZ) — The most common New Year's resolution is to lose weight or get in shape.

And while working out at home can be cheaper, there are a lot of distraction at home too -- distractions that can derail your fitness goals. So if you're looking to create a new you in the new year, here are the top 7 fitness clubs in Metro Detroit as selected by our 7 Action News viewers.

Number 7 is Powerhouse Gym. The first location was founded in 1974 in Highland Park. But now Powerhouse is in 39 states and 17 countries.

La Fitness is number 6. They're expanding in metro Detroit. Now with 16 locations, their signature clubs offer upscale equipment and service.

Life Time Fitness calls themselves a healthy life brand. And say they want to provide an entertaining, educational and innovative, way to meet the health and fitness needs of the entire family. Life Time lands at number 5 on our list.

Planet Fitness comes in at number 4. If price is important, Plant Fitness has a basic membership for just 10 bucks a month. You'll get the work out. Not your wallet.

If your schedule makes working out a challenge, Anytime Fitness may help. They're open 24/7, 365 days.
They're third on our list.

#2 is Pulse Fitness in Pleasant Ridge. Trainers and instructors build one of a kind programs, personalized for each client, all in a modern industrial atmosphere.

Now the number one club in Metro Detroit, according to our 7 ACTION news viewers. It's the Beverly Hills Club in Beverly Hills.

The Beverly Hills Club has been in the community for 46 years. And their goal is to offer activities for the whole family. From Pilates and spin classes for adults to special offerings for children, says club president Steven Satovsky.

"We've got kid's programs. We've got tennis. We've got swimming. We've got taekwondo."

There are a lot of deals going on right now, but don't choose your club on price alone. Find a club that will keep your interest. If the club is inexpensive but you don't go, then it's just a waste of money.
