Sport England: Survey into adult physical activity attitudes and behaviour (wave 12)

The survey tracks how the Covid-19 outbreak affects the English population’s attitudes and behaviours towards physical activity.

The survey asks the public about their exercise habits before and after the Covid-19 restrictions, focusing on the type of physical activity they currently do and how frequently. It looks at how attitudes have changed as a result of the outbreak, with the majority of respondents showing a shift in attitudes towards physical activity in the current circumstances. It also asks parents how their children have changed their exercise habits since the Covid-19 restrictions.
