New research released this week shows that New Jersey is the most gym-obsessed state in the nation.

The survey conducted by fitness experts Fitness Volt using Google trends and other collected data shows that New Jersey ranks high in overall totals with points awarded for commitment to going to the gym.

Google searches online for “gyms near me”, number of gym memberships, Google trends for yoga and pilates “near me”, have a gym home sport, get complete workouts and points for people involved in bodybuilding.

New Jersey ranked number one in the nation with a total of 672 points, California and Hawaii ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively with scores of 641 and 639.

To give you an idea of ​​New Jersey’s ranking strength, the least gym-obsessed states include South Dakota, which ranks dead last in the survey with 383 points, and North Dakota and Virginia- Western are also at the bottom of the list.

A spokesperson for Fitness Volt said that according to the CDC, only 53% of the US population meets physical activity guidelines for aerobic physical activity. This study parallels states that are physically active and participate in gym culture and according to the spokesperson, “New Jersey takes the crown.”

This is the survey that took place after the pandemic, so it’s good to see that New Jersey continues to give a lot of credit to keeping going to the gym and getting healthy.

Writing this article inspired me to get out of my lounge chair and give it another shot. God help me. Congratulations to New Jersey for being number one!
