How the Pandemic Is Changing Our Exercise Habits
Many of us have been moving less since the pandemic began. But some, including many older men and women, seem to be moving more.
An overwhelming majority worked out less, especially once full lockdowns began — regardless of their gender or socioeconomic status. The drop was most marked among those people who had been the most active before the pandemic and among people under the age of about 40 (who were not always the same people).
After lockdowns lifted or eased, most people began exercising a bit more often, but, in general, only those older than 65 returned to or exceeded their previous minutes of exercise.
