Each year, the President holds a formal State of the Union address. The annual speech, however, rarely addresses one of the most pressing issues faced by our nation: the health (and weight problems) of Americans. That’s where Anytime Fitness steps in, and for the fourth year in a row, we’ve compiled a comprehensive “Weight of the Union” report. This year’s report is based on an in-depth survey of more than 1,000 Americans.
- 84% of adults believe Americans generally weigh more now than they did five years ago.
- 56% of overweight respondents and 30% of obese respondents felt they were at normal weights compared to the general American public.
- 73% of adults want to increase their current activity level.
