While stuck at home practicing social distancing due to COVID-19, many people are adapting at-home workouts by using fitness apps to get their sweat on.
The study, done by Elliptical Reviews, asked nearly 1,000 people about their exercise habits, and the results were bright for those who use exercise apps.
The study found that 55% of respondents have used a fitness app before, but the interesting part is that those who use apps workout more consistently than those who don’t use them.
According to the study, 40% of people who use fitness apps workout five or more days per week, compared to 31% of people who don’t use apps workout at the same rate. On average, more than half of the people who don’t use fitness apps workout three or fewer days per week.
The study found that only 4.9% of non-app workers exercise every day, compared to 7% of app users.
According to the survey, 73% of women and 66% of men say they have boosted confidence from using workout apps.
“It has made me confident that the exercises I do are actually helping me and that I am doing them right since it shows videos every time I start a workout,” one 29-year-old female respondent said.
