Britons whose fitness levels slipped during the pandemic are now suffering from 'FOWO', fear of working out, according to one gym chain.

Fitness First says that Covid ruined many people's exercise regimes, with nearly half (45 per cent) of those polled saying they are still stuck in 'fitness doldrums'.

And while one-in-five bought exercise equipment for use at home, only five per cent said they were still using it a year on.

Nearly half (44 per cent) said lack of motivation was behind their reluctance to get back to the gym, while 35 per cent cited a lack of confidence.

Women suffered the most, with the poll finding more than a third (36 per cent) of women said they felt less healthy as a result of the pandemic, compared with just 26 per cent of men.

Their poll of 2,000 people complements research by Public Health England that found that more than four in 10 adults in England said they have put on weight since the first lockdown.
