Fitness Awareness in India: HT Youth Survey Reveals 70% of Indian Youth Don’t Work out and 63% Don’t Check on their Diet
Indian youth is awfully less concerned of their fitness and diet. HT Youth Survey 2017 exposes many sad truths about Indian youth and overall fitness awareness in India. A big share of Indian youth doesn’t work out daily. More sadly, they are not also aware of the importance of a healthy diet. Clearly speaking, the survey statistics show that only 70% of youth work out daily. And 62.5% of youth don’t have any check on their diet.
The HT survey took place in 16 cities including state capitals. And to your surprise, this worse report on fitness awareness in India came from educated and internet-using youth in age groups of 18 – 21 and 22 – 25 years. That is, real essence of Indian populace is either lazy or unaware of the need of physical activities. Therefore, what in the making is a big health crisis. We already have it in worse condition with variety of lifestyle diseases.
Fitness Awareness in India – HT Survey Results
We have shocking data from HT fitness survey. Let us have a look at the key results. First, come to fitness, as said above, 70% of respondents say they don’t follow any physical activity for fitness. Of which, people from Patna, capital of Bihar, has the worst record with 96.7% respondents not following any workout. Come to diet, again Indian youth has no attention at all. As put it above, over 60% don’t mind what they eat at all.
Another shocking thing is Indian youth don’t have trust in Yoga. Though the governments are wildly promoting Yoga, HT survey shows that 80% of Indian youth don’t do or believe in Yoga. Wanna have a look at how people in different places see fitness and diet? Yes, we have something interesting there. Hyderabad is the most active city with 49% of respondents doing daily workouts. Ahmadabad and Mumbai come second and third.
Kerala’s Kochi is the best when it comes to the diet awareness. People there are well-informed about following a diet for fitness. By the way, in fitness awareness in India, as a whole women prefer to dieting, and men go for workouts. Around 40% of women check on diet regularly, while only 35.2% male do that. Meanwhile, 33% men prefer to to do workouts for fitness, with only 26.8 women taking care of it.
Organic and Probiotic Foods
It is a fact that organic, fiber-rich, and probiotic foods help us enhance fitness along with workouts. But most of Indian youth (60.9%) don’t think certain food have some effect on fitness and healthy life. In this case, Kochi people are quite aware of, anyway. 80% of respondents from the Kerala city think probiotic and fiber foods are good for healthy bowel movements. Meanwhile, survey shows Indian youth has good idea on the importance of fruits as 60% consume them regularly for better health.
Does the survey data really shock you? Certainly, when it comes to fitness awareness in India, we are very lazy about at all. We Indians, from my experience, start to worry about fitness only when our belly starts to bump up with excess fat. And when we feel trembling while climbing upstairs as elevator doesn’t work. Well, these situations happen mostly after 25 years. And so I think a survey with age groups from 25 to 35 years will bring more good results as far as the awareness about fitness is concerned. Still the number of gym goers or regular exercisers will be very few compared to that of in many western countries.http://www.fitnesscheff.com/fitness-awareness-in-india/http://www.fitnesscheff.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Fitness-Awareness-in-India.jpghttp://www.fitnesscheff.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Fitness-Awareness-in-India-150x150.jpgFitness NewsGeneral FitnessFitness Awareness in IndiaIndian youth is awfully less concerned of their fitness and diet.
