Christmas is over, but the it's not just our expanding Christmas waistlines that need a workout. Our finances too need to be brought back into shape. Figures show that just one in 100 Brits is in peak financial condition, while the average person is a massive 43% overweight in financial terms.
Women are well on the way to becoming a gender of financial fatties, returning an average score of 46% overweight. Men were leaner, yet with an average of 41%, still overweight. Only just over half of people regularly review their mortgage to get a better deal, proving that that the majority of people are in need of a financial workout to get their finances in peak condition for 2008.
Like any exercise, a financial workout can take a bit of effort but for most people the rewards are well worth it.
