Cape Town is, once again, on the top of the Discovery Vitality leaderboard with regards to their fitness habits and activity levels.

Johannesburg comes in at a close second, and Pretoria in third. In last place, however, is Bloemfontein.

Highest number of gym visits

The company shared their most recent data at their Road to a Healthier South Africa presentation earlier today.

Among the data collected by the company, Cape Town had the most gym visits and had the most steps tracked.

South Africa's activity level, or comparative lack thereof, has also been highlighted in the company's presentation, as only one in four South Africans is physically active.

This data, and studies among other Vitality users around the world, highlighted a worrying trend – South Africans as a nation are getting lazier. Globally, only 23% of people live sedentary lives, but in South Africa, the figure stands at a whopping 50%.
