Sport England have released their second Active Lives Adult Report which summarises active living levels in England from 2016 to 2017. The report covers activity involving sport and fitness, looking at specific demographic data.
For MyLocalPitch this is a fantastic fact and one that we are proud of – as our aim is always on increasing the use of sporting activities with people!
All in all, it gives sport a 5.8% higher rate compared to fitness activities in active living figures.
With sporting activities, the differences in activities for both genders are prominent to see!
The report also found specific sporting stats – which showed cycling for leisure and travel is higher for men.
Similarly to sporting activities, differences are evident, but it is now the opposite!
The report also found specific fitness stats for walking – which showed women are higher than men when it came to walking for leisure and travel.
The population of people who took part in the report are split into three activity types – inactive, fairly active and active.
This is a great find from the report and it’s positive to see the majority of people are active.
These figures are continuously observed but currently men are more likely to be active than women – but not by a massive margin!
Let’s stay being active!
