Texting hinders exercise time

London, Sep 28 : Texting seems to be one of the prime reasons why women complain of lack of time to exercise.

A new survey, commissioned by new High Intensity Interval Training fitness system, Tabata shows that three quarters of Britain's women want to get fitter, but 40 percent of these women say that they don't have the time.

According to the survey, over half of the women respondents, spend 30-60 minutes a day texting, while 47 percent of them spend 30-60 minutes using Facebook.

Izumi Tabata, former researcher at the National Institute for Health and Nutrition, is not surprised as to why people don't find the time to exercise.

"It's not surprising to hear that people feel their lives are too busy to exercise," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Tabata as saying.
