Other findings included:

  • 60% of those in Maryland said they’d rather spend an hour at the gym than in a bar
  • Just under half of that said they’re more excited by post-workout buzz than being tipsy
  • The majority of Virginia also said they’d prefer to work out over drinking
  • More than a quarter of all respondents said they have adopted healthier choices popularized by social media influencers
  • 77% said even if there hadn’t been COVID restrictions, they still wouldn’t have a strong desire to go out partying

The results also suggest that the expensive cost of drinking culture could influence the cut-down.
