The Challenges to being in Shape

OnePoll conducted a survey in 2019 that shows that 6 in 10 Americans hoped to get in shape that year. With the number of people aiming to get in shape, it is surprising that only 23% of Americas meet the minimum fitness activity guidelines, according to the National Health Reports by CDC.

 

The Barriers to getting in shape

OnePoll conducted a fitness survey in association with Freeletics. The aim was to discover the most significant barriers preventing Americans from engaging in fitness exercise. There were so many barriers learned from the poll, but the biggest was "not having time," which took the crown of first place, with 42% admitting that time is the barrier that prevents them from exercising.
