Apparently, some Americans need to take a vacation so they can find some time to exercise.
So, what constitutes exercise? 87% say walking (like, oh, to the restaurant).
Another 46% say they like swimming (or bobbing, in the hot tub).
Hiking is popular with 35% of vacationers, which we suspect refers to the Death March between the parking lot and lobby.
Of people who say they work out while on vacation, 31% say their main reason is to maintain their fitness regimen (meaning, we guess, that 69% have no fitness regimen before they … take a break).
A further 28% exercise to avoid gaining weight, so by subtraction, 72% must take a vacation so that they can gain weight, right?
The third most popular reason for exercising on holiday is to capitalize on having more free time to work out (14%).
So, what happens when that 14% returns home? “Gimme the remote, and a bowl of marshmallows with nacho cheez sauce.”
