The findings also reveal that the rate of employees who do sports regularly stands at 52%, with 50% able to exercise two or three times a week, compared to 47% last year. Some 34% of those who work six hours per day do sports four times a week.
The majority of respondents said they exercise in the evening (65%), but freelancers and part-time workers often choose to do their exercises in the morning and during the daytime.
At the same time, compared to 24% last year, only 21% now claimed that they use sports as a form of relaxation or stress relief. Interestingly, just 7% of those who work four hours a day said they use sports to this end. A mere 15% go for short walks when suffering from workplace pressure.
Apart from the 74% who say their workplace does not support their sporting activities, 25% say that their job actually hinders them from doing sports. However, the fact that 55% of workplaces offer showers may indicate a shift in the trend, notes the research.
