Abstract

uncontrolled compulsion towards all kinds of physical activity.With the purpose of understanding the epidemiology of this steadilyincreasing phenomenon, we have done a statistical analysis aboutsome data obtained through the administration of an online-questionnaire (Google forms): the same one was also convertedinto paper-questionnaire and then it has been administered in manygyms in Palermo and Trapani (Sicily-Italy). The sample examinedconsists of 976 people aged between 14 and 65 (47.3% of them arewomen and 52.7% are men). For 53.8% of analysed people,physical activity is one of the most important things of their life.In fact, 18% of them declared to have conflicts with family orfriends, because of the excessive hours dedicated to sport.Moreover, 86.2% of them pointed out that physical activity is amood-booster. Probably for this reason, 49.6% of them claimed thatthey have drastically increased the number of hours devoted tophysical activities in last years. Now, the most impressive statisticis the following one: 23.5% of surveyed declared that they getrestless and nervous if they are unable to perform the training.Thanks to the last data, a clear symptom of craving emerged.
