A Roy Morgan Single Source survey shows that 47.9% of Australians aged +14 walked for exercise in the year to December 2017, an increase of 2.6 per cent since 2014. This is followed by gym/weight training (15.4%), jogging (10.1%), swimming (9.7%) and cycling (5.8%). Meanwhile, 47.7% of kids aged six to 13 regularly go swimming, ahead of playing soccer (45.7%), cycling (37.4%) and basketball (33.0%). The survey shows that Australian kids are far more likely to participate regularly in sporting activities than older Australians. Aussie kids are nearly five times as likely to swim regularly and over six times as likely to cycle. The starkest difference is for regular participation in soccer, which kids are over 15 times more likely to play than adults.
