Ep. #874: Can You Be “Addicted” to Exercise? This Is What Science Says
Is exercise addiction real? Is it something to worry about?
In general, the opposite is the problem here in America. Seventy-seven percent of Americans fail to reach the minimum recommended physical activity guidelines, while only about 0.5% of people can be classified as what we might call exercise addicts.
However, the numbers change when you look at certain demographics. For example, when you look at “fitness people” specifically, exercise addiction is much more common according to a number of studies.
So what is exercise addiction? Could you be addicted to exercise or maybe on the path to becoming addicted? What are the signs of exercise addictions? How do you know if you’re exercising too much?
I answer all that and more in this podcast, so press play and dive in!
