In January, we surveyed your physical activity/exercise!

Thank you to all of our quick poll responders, your feedback is so appreciated!

The responder group (51 total) is significantly split with 31% reporting never or rarely participating in physical activity/ exercise verses 41% that have identified themselves participating 3 or more times per week the rest vary between 1 and 2 times per week.  Of the responders would reported exercising 47% participate in Endurance/Resistance activity and 57% also perform stretching during their activity routines.   65% are performing their exercise activities in their home while 28% may go to the gym and about 20% perform their exercise by some other means such as gaming systems like the Wii.  18% of responders feel they are not adequately informed about activities they can do to safely perform exercise.  Of the individuals, who rarely or never exercise 49% selected that more education on exercise and spinal cord injury would motivate them to perform more activity.

The overall demographics of our responding group was 43% women and 57% men, 58% were 36-55 years old and 32% were 56 and older.  59% have been living with their spinal cord injury for over 10 years.  The responders reporting having Paraplegia were 59% and 41% Tetraplegia.
