The survey shows that 38% of Europeans play sport or exercise at least once a week or more, while 17% exercise less than once a week. Up to 45% of Europeans currently never exercise or partake in physical activity. While this is a stabilisation compared to the 2017 Eurobarometer, the continued promotion for sport and physical activity clearly remains much needed. The survey also reveals that during COVID-19 pandemic, half of Europeans reduced their activity levels or even stopped altogether.
