A survey conducted by Snap Fitness Health Club reveals that there are more men than women who show interest in keeping themselves fit.

"People are getting more aware of being healthy. Our customers come for different reasons. Some want to act, so they work on their body; some students want to be fit," BM Vikram, CEO, Snap Fitness, said.

"There are athletes too who want to build stamina or somebody who is about to get married or someone who wants to get back in shape post delivery. Also people suffering from obesity, after consulting a doctor, come to us," he added. The fitness chain caters to about 30 per cent women and 70 per cent men.

“I can't point out the exact reason. It might be one of the reasons. But things are changing. Two or two and a half years back, the ratio was 20:80. Now it's improving," Vikram said.

Now, the firm's aim is to increase awareness when it comes to weight loss.

"When people think of shedding weight, they assume that running is sufficient. There has to be a combination of strength training and cardio, so that you don't lose muscle mass. The focus should be only on fat mass," he said.
