In 2016, the number of people in the United States who used fitness equipment grew from 3.2 million to 5.7 million, according to a report released by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The study found that the increase was driven by people switching to physical activity and not by people who have quit exercising altogether.
Fitness equipment sales increased by 6.4 percent in the US in 2016, with the number and average price of the equipment increasing by 23.9 percent, the report said.
However, it said that in the long run, the rise in sales of fitness equipment “will result in a decline in health outcomes”.
A recent survey by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) found that physical activity accounted for a significant portion of people’s health-related spending.
People spent $20.3 billion on physical activity in the year before the survey, with a typical spend of $5.3.
Fitness was not one of the top four health-care-related purchases in 2016.
According to the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), people spend about $1.6 trillion on physical activities in the USA each year, and the majority of those spend on fitness equipment.
The report said that the rise of the fitness industry has coincided with the growth of an unhealthy diet, which is leading to an increase in obesity and related chronic disease.
Obesity rates in the U.S. have been increasing since 1999.
The prevalence of obesity has been on the rise since 2005, when the CDC estimated that 2.3 percent of adults were obese, and a recent study from the Centers of Disease Control found that an increase of 0.8 percent in body mass index (BMI) was associated with an increase by 4.6 percent in obesity-related morbidity and mortality.
According the CDC, the prevalence of overweight among U..
S adults is now nearly 20 percent.
In 2016 and 2017, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) published a report on the prevalence and health consequences of exercise and exercise-related injury, which suggested that the most common health consequences from exercise include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, kidney disease and cancer.
It said that a person’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease is higher for people who exercise three or more hours a week and for those who exercise more than three hours a day.
However the report warned that “people who do not exercise frequently may not be at a higher risk for heart disease or stroke or for cancer.”
It also said that exercise does not appear to be the cause of many of the problems associated with obesity, including lower physical activity, lower physical fitness and increased weight gain.
