Bellevue Personal Training | Less Netflix/More Exercise

It appears that the average American spends four times as much time watching Netflix as they do exercising!  A recent analysis by the Streaming Observer showed that the average Netflix user spends approximately 71 minutes a day watching Netflix. Sadly, other data shows the average American spends only 17 minutes a day with some type of exercise. 

Ken Alan, a lecturer in the Dept of Kinesiology, at Cal State U, Fullerton, suggests people make a commitment to doing 20 minutes of exercise, daily, for every 60 minutes of TV watched.  He even recommended that some exercise could be done while watching a show ~ especially if others are watching too. Stretching,  any resistance tubing exercises, Yoga postures.  You don’t necessarily have to choose between exercise and TV!
