Do Doctors Exercise?

The simple answer? No. A recent study shows that 4 out of 5 doctors do not get enough exercise. For the statisticians out there, yes this is not a great sample as it is small and made up of British doctors, but I don't imagine the numbers being much different here. I think more hospitals should have a gym attached for both patients, their family members, and staff in order to let patients rehab in a more dynamic way and staff easily access exercise facilities. Of course, all the usual precautions should be in place for patients but I can see it being quite helpful for some, especially those that seem to go stir crazy sitting in bed all day long.

  2. It's not "good" to exercise, it's "essential" and I think doctors should be the first ones to give the good example. You don't find time, you make time.
