The chart above depicts the different forms of taking exercise. As is revealed by the chart, the percentage of taking exercise alone was the largest among all the categories, accounting for 54%. In comparison, taking exercise with friends, and with families took up 47.7% and 23.9% respectively, while taking exercise in the form of group only occupied 15.8%.
These differences correspond to the social reality and living standard in existence. Actually, some factors always stand out on top of others, if we take a closer look into the phenomenon. At the top of the list, due to the COVID-19 circumstance this year, people tend to keep a reasonable social distance, which contributes to more than half of the folks decide to take exercise alone rather than in the form of group. Besides, taking exercise alone may bring about efficiency. There is no doubt that overwhelming majorities insist that jogging alone or taking other exercises alone can help them focus on the present. However, we can not ignore the fact that it is still essential for many people to take exercise with friends. This is probably because people need interaction and connection.
Taking into account the points discussed so far, we can conclude that with the development of society, the phenomenon is bound to continue for a few years in the future. As far as I am concerned, it’s a positive trend and should be encouraged since it is beneficial not merely to individuals but to the whole society.
