III. Methodology and Limitation

To gather the data shown above, we surveyed 1,000 respondents in the United States on their opinion and insights toward fitness at home during the pandemic. The survey was launched on MTurk with the target location set to the U.S. We chose the approval rate above 95 percent to ensure the quality of the survey results. Within the survey questions, we also used the qualifying question to exclude the answer from those who are not gym-goers.

 

Because the survey relies on self-reporting, issues such as telescoping and exaggeration can influence responses. Please also note that this survey’s results do not reflect our opinions.
