This is so crazy!
A new study reported in American Journal of Epidemiology, which followed nearly 8,900 adults over several years, has found that both men and women who got married during that time became less physically fit!
Meanwhile, the people who stayed single, or became single by divorce, either maintained their fitness or it increased!
However, lead researcher Dr. Francisco B. Ortega, of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, wanted to stress that these increases were minor in most cases, and that the majority of fitness level had to do with genetics, social situations, etc.
We say good to know anyway!
Maybe it will help people be more conscious of their fitness level when they get married, which can't hurt!
