More than 50 percent of People Use Smartphones during Workouts


A recent study conducted by Lab 42, a market research firm, revealed that 51 percent of the study respondents used a smartphone for various purposes while they were working out.

The Lab 42 study showed that among the various uses for a smartphone while working out, 91 percent used it as a music player while they are lifting weights or doing cardiovascular exercises. Forty-three percent of the respondents said they use their smartphone to help the track their pace, while 33 percent are really multitasking since they check their email even while they’re working out. Of the total respondents, 74 percent said that their smartphones actually helped them in their workout routine by improving their weight loss efforts. About 72 percent said the technology they use (their smartphones) helps encourage them to work out on a more regular basis.

Some of the reasons cited for how smartphones help in weight loss efforts include the use of tracking apps like food journals, various workout apps that make workouts entertaining by encouraging the user’s progress and more information that is provided through the smartphones, which allows for workouts to be done outside the gym. The social network also plays a part in the survey with 75 percent of the respondents saying that they share the progress of their workouts with their friends through Facebook, email or text messages.
