New study shows the time Londoners are most likely to work out

One of the more common reasons for not getting enough physical activity is not having enough time to go to the gym.

Fitness experts have analysed attendance data from 20 gym chains in London to establish the most popular time and day that people workout.

The analysis shows that the busiest time for London residents to work out is at 5:30pm. The busiest day is Tuesday, showing that Londoners like to start their week with a workout in the gym.

On average, people spend up to an hour working out each time they visit the gym, which is enough to meet the guidelines set by the NHS, if they go regularly. The recommendations say that adults should get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity exercise and that this should be spread over four or five days.

A spokesperson for had this to say:

“Finding a routine that works for you and fits around your schedule is the first step to a healthy lifestyle. Heading to the gym after work helps to regulate the stresses of the day.

With this data, we could see more people choosing quieter times to go the gym helping more adults to meet the NHS guidelines and maintaining or exceeding the current levels of 66%.”
