Do you lie about working out?


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.

    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%)
    • Spent too much time at work (21%)
    • Wanted to go home (19%)
