in #CASE you missed it… People Lie About Working Out
Do you sometimes feel like you’re the only one of your friends and family who isn’t working out on a regular basis? Well, don’t be because there’s a very good chance those people are totally lying to you about their workout routine.
A new survey finds:
19% of people admit they’ve lied about working out.
As for why, 37% admit they fibbed to convince someone else they were busy.
35% lied to impress someone
31% were too embarrassed by what they were actually doing.
Now even if people do make it to the gym, that doesn’t necessarily mean they actually workout.
37% of people say they’ve bailed out of their workout early because they forgot something.
Another 30% say they’ve skipped an entire workout because they forgot an “essential” item.
Those items include:
Workout bottoms (70%)
Workout top (64%)
Gym bag (42%)
Music device (38%)
And then there are the people who just skip their workout altogether, and for a variety of reasons. The top excuses for not working out include:
Too tired (58%)
Other things to do (51%)
Didn’t want to go (30%)
Made up an excuse (21%)
