A spokesperson for VoucherCodesPro, who commissioned the research, said: ‘I have to admit it’s a bit worrying to see the influence that social media sites and celebrity culture is having on women and their perception of ‘the perfect body’.
“Whilst implementing a healthy and active lifestyle is positive, I would urge Brits to be careful that they don’t take it a step too far.
- Not all fitness trends are best for your body
The spokesperson also said; “We’ve seen how quickly certain trends, like the thigh gap and the controversial Kyle Jenner lip challenge can escalate, with many young people jumping on the bandwagon to stay up to date with the latest trends.”
“Many of these include fitness trends that aren’t necessarily the best for your body.”
