Survey Finds Swimming Ranks in Top 5 Most Popular Ways to Exercise


Many Americans consider being in shape and looking good to be an important goal, at least according to a recent survey. ReportLinker, a technology company specializing in market research, asked Americans how they perceive their personal fitness level and which exercises they prefer when trying to stay in shape. Of the respondents, 77% said being in shape and looking good were very important to them.

The survey also provides some insight into which exercises people are most likely to engage in. Joining a fitness center ranked highest, at 40%, but basketball and swimming followed close behind, each mentioned by 35% of respondents. Jogging and yoga came next, at 34% and 21% respectively.
