Over 75% Of American Adults Are Failing at Exercise

Only one-quarter of American adults are achieving the minimum amount of exercise suggested for a healthy life, according to new statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Data collected in 2020 and published by the National Center for Health Statistics on Tuesday shows only 24.2% of adults aged 18 and over met the recommended amount of both aerobic and muscle strengthening activities, for a combined average of 150 minutes per week.

The remaining three-quarters of the population otherwise fell short — some by not engaging at all. More than one in five (22.7%) met only the suggested guidelines for aerobic activity, while a few (6.8%) focused mostly on strengthening muscle.

That leaves a staggering 46.3% — nearly half of US adults — who failed to meet the minimum in either category.

Research shows health benefits kick in with at least 150 minutes a week of moderately intense aerobic activity, and that both aerobic and muscle strengthening activities are beneficial to a healthy lifestyle, according to health officials.
