Survey Says: Sedentary!

In a recent study of adult activity published by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, only 5% of the over 80,000 people surveyed engaged in vigorous activity.

The numbers are not promising,

Most Americans reported in engaging in sedentary activities, such as eating and drinking (95.6%), followed by watching television and movies (80%) and washing, dressing and grooming (78.9%).

The next most strenuous level of activity reported was food preparation (25.7%).

Only 2.2% of the people surveyed reported using the cardio equipment at the gym, and a mere 1% actually run!!

This is well behind that recommended 30 minutes per day of moderate physical activity for basic health maintenance, and the 60-90 minutes suggested for weight loss.

Where do you fit into the equation?
