Fitness and Motivation
posted at 7/9/2010 3:52 AM EDT
I am a member of a group of recent college grads trying to create a new way of approaching physical fitness. Insufficient or absent motivation to exercise poses a huge risk to the health of average Americans: 30% of people nationwide are obese while only about 13% of US citizens own gym memberships. We created the survey below to learn more about what motivates the average person to exercise or, in many cases, stay home on the couch.
If you have time, please fill out the survey and/or send it to your friends: any response will contribute to our understanding of exercise motivation. After the survey has received enough responses we may be performing a pilot study in Boston complete with a free gym membership to test out theories on fitness and motivation. If you would be interested in participating in this study, enter your email at the bottom of the survey. Thanks for all of your help,
