What price exercise?

Nearly two thirds of UK adults do not take sufficient exercise, according to a survey conducted by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. A fifth of those questioned admitted that they exercise only once a month or less, though how the level of exertion is defined is not entirely clear. After all, shagging is a healthy aerobic activity, and I understand it’s widely practised throughout society.

I’m particularly drawn to the following statement in the report:

“Over half (53 per cent) of people questioned said that they would take more regular exercise if they could fit it into their existing daily routine, and 39 per cent said it would help if exercise were free.”

What price exercise? Are 39% of Brits so commodity-obsessed that they consider it essential to purchase expensive gym membership in order to physically exert themselves?
