77.1% of Adults Don't Meet Healthy Weekly Physical Activity Guidelines

"Only 23% of Amer­i­can adults meet leisure-time phys­i­cal activ­i­ty (LTPA) guide­lines, accord­ing to new research data from the Cen­ter for Dis­ease Control's Nation­al Cen­ter for Health Sta­tis­tics, reports Club Indus­try. The U.S. Depart­ment of Health and Human Ser­vices rec­om­mends that those between the ages of 18 and 64 engage in at least 150 min­utes of mod­er­ate phys­i­cal activ­i­ty or 75 min­utes of vig­or­ous phys­i­cal activ­i­ty every week. Only 22.9% of adults cur­rent­ly meet these guide­lines, accord­ing to the new data released on June 28."

"The bar­ri­ers to entry for recre­ation­al run­ning and jog­ging are among the low­est of any sport. A good pair of sneak­ers and com­fort­able cloth­ing are all you real­ly need to get in the game. And mil­lions of Amer­i­cans hit the pave­ment every day. In fact, more than a quar­ter of all adult Amer­i­cans (26.4%) have gone run­ning or jog­ging in the past year, accord­ing to Nielsen Scar­bor­ough research."
