2020 moved many of our things. Our daily routine — from work to the grocery store and family time to exercise — was changed, almost indefinitely.
Almost a year since the novel coronavirus stopped the UK from diarrhea, new studies have begun to analyze the effect of the rapidly spreading respiratory disease we had on our lifestyle habits, and especially, exercise. Not surprisingly, the study below paints a grim picture, with large numbers of UK people exploring gymnastics indoors and outdoors. Let’s take a look.
RunRepeat, a review site that focuses on athletic footwear, has analyzed the impact of the epidemic on the fitness industry, with specific focus on athletic practices. Asking active adults how they chose to stay fit, 59.1 percent of the study participants found that exercise involving running, mountaineering, hiking, and cycling was the best way to achieve their fitness goals.
In addition, a BMJ study found that the epidemic, despite its unprecedented economic and social devastation, could lead to the UK population increasing its visible interest rate and engaging in physical activity… reduced workloads, access to volunteer time, increased health awareness and ubiquitous messages recommending timely exercise. of COVID-19 from the media, governments and health authorities. “
Similarly, a study by Sport England found that, while 41 percent of respondents reported doing less physically than “pre-lockdown”, 31 percent reported doing more. Sport England also found that 62 percent of adults also think that staying active is more important now than before the epidemic, and more than half reported being encouraged to exercise by Government guidelines.
However, not all issues are modest. Active adults – those who exercise regularly – have been seeking professional help more than ever during the coronavirus epidemic, with 47.5 percent of people hiring personal trainers and dietitians.
