Curious to see how your fellow Americans stack up in the fitness department? Results from a Timex/Sodahead.com survey give some insight into the nation’s workout habits, and it's mostly good news: 73% of respondents are working out at least once a week, and 29% spend between 30 minutes and one hour on fitness.
Out of 665 respondents, 510 (77%) say they usually exercise alone. That's fine if you have rock-solid willpower, but sometimes you need a nudge to get off the couch. That’s when a buddy is needed. Working out with a friend at least once a week keeps you focused and on track. Here’s how to find the right one.
While 73% of respondents work out at least once a week — hey, it’s better than nothing — 26% say they do not exercise regularly. We don’t have to go into the importance of regular exercise again, do we?
When it comes to finding time to exercise, Americans may not be “morning people,” as nearly half of respondents say that they don’t exercise in the morning. For those that do work out in the morning, 6 a.m. is the most popular time.
