Did you know that many high earners are exercising more whilst climbing up the career ladder?
The results are in and prove a whopping 85% of successful people earning between £100k and £200k plus per year exercise on a daily basis! Taken from an independent study conducted by Buyagift.com, which collated the survey data from 850 participants, the results strongly support the hypothesis that the more you earn the more physically active you are likely to be.
The exciting findings have been presented in this interactive infographic, where you can enter your income and the amount you exercise and it will calculate if you are above or below average. Results startlingly demonstrate that 37% of those earning less than £20k per year never exercise.
Of course correlation does not imply causality, you may be unemployed right now and enjoy running 3-4 times a week, working-out or participating in a number of sports. What, however, this study does indicate is that if you are the type of person who puts in the hard work with their fitness to get those results, you are more than likely to be the type of person who works harder in other areas of life as well.
I guess it’s time to banish those winter blues and take a step in the right direction this year. Follow in the footsteps of those successful people and increase your wellbeing, exercise regime and your wallet! Exercise also promotes healthy sleep patterns, leaving you more energised and productive during the working day.
Internet entrepreneur Evan Williams, co-founder of highly profitable companies including Twitter and Medium, is known for undergoing a workout in the middle of the day. With energy levels fluctuating during the day, some find stepping away from the desk and breaking a sweat through a workout, can lead to a more productive afternoon. It has obviously worked wonders for the successful Evan Williams and is a great incentive to get more active during your lunch break or at a time of day where you feel your energy levels dipping.
There’s no better time than now to make a positive lifestyle change. Join the elite and kick-start your new year with a healthy and energetic outlook!
