Only 5% of Americans exercised today…

By: Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of the Academy

Did you work out this morning?  If the answer is no, you are not alone.  A new study suggests that only 5% of Americans are getting some type of daily exercise.  Researchers profiled over 80,000 people and found over 95% of them spend their day eating and drinking.  Another 80% park themselves in front of the television.  25% do some kind of moderate activity, which includes food and drink preparation.  10% said they take care of their lawn and houseplants.  Only 5% engage in vigorous physical exercise with a mere 2% doing some kind of cardiovascular work out.
