Six in ten people say they’re sitting more than they did pre-pandemic with 30.8 percent saying they sit more than eight hours a day. For those who previously commuted to work, they’re “redeeming” their commute time in a variety of ways: catching up on sleep, spending more time with family, finding more time for exercise, and eating more thoughtful meals they’ve planned.

Overall results point to the pandemic having a substantial negative impact on the health and fitness habits of most. Nearly 70 percent of respondents said their personal health has been negatively impacted this year. Top reasons cited for the negative impact include overall stress from a pandemic, the closure of gyms, and working from home leading to less motivation to exercise.

Additionally, three-fourths believe that health clubs are essential businesses and should remain open during the pandemic to achieve health goals. With the ‘new year, new me’ attitude kicking in most people, it seems they are motivated to regain their health and fitness in the New Year. (IANS)
