Popular Sports and Leisure Activities in Britain

Over recent decades the number and range of available leisure activities has mushroomed, in Britain. It is fair to say that Britain, in common with most Western countries, has become a leisure-orientated society. Western people have also become extremely health-conscious, and for many young people Keep-fit is a very important part of their lives. In addition there is a widespread preoccupation with healthy eating: trying to avoid fatty and fried foods, and cutting down on sugary

products, eating vegetables and fruit. Many young people, especially young women, regularly go to the gym to do aerobics, weight-lifting, and so on. Aerobics is equivalent to what the Russians call "Shaping". Such Keep-fit centres offering these kinds of exercises have sprung up all over Britain and there, mostly women-of all shapes, sizes, and ages, gather together to do light exercises often to the latest hit records. Many people say that the experience is a very exhilarating one, that their adrenalin flows, and that attending aerobics classes becomes akin to an addiction...but a healthy one at least!
