Fitness Apps Data Reveals American Workout Habits, Most Active States

from Reuters

Millions of Americans are recording their workout routines and activities on apps that are giving fitness experts new insights into the habits of a logged-in population.

Data compiled by fitness and workout tracker apps, MyFitnessPal and MapMyFitness, show that California, Colorado and Washington are the U.S. states with the most active residents based on the length, frequency and type of exercise they recorded.

South Carolina, Delaware and North Dakota are at the other end of the spectrum in the ranking.

"Seven of our top 10 active states were western states," said Rebecca Silliman of MyFitnessPal, which analyzed information recorded by its 65 million users.

It combined its data with workout information from MapMyFitness' 25 million users to rank the states according to their diet, sleep and activity habits.

Silliman said the data, logged from January to December of 2014, came mostly from people aged 25 to 44. About 65 percent were women and 40 percent were men. more
