Until now, how and why working women integrate sports and fitness activities into their personal and professional lives has been the subject of speculation and not much research. This study is the first to explore the role of sports and exercise in the lives of women who work outside the home.
The Miller Lite Report on Sports and Fitness in the Lives of Working Women is based on a national random sample of 1,577 American women working in white-collar occupations and professions. These range from executives, professionals, administrators and managers to technicians, sales and clerical personnel. About two-thirds of American working women are employed in these fields.
Among the more significant findings of the research is that most working women participate in some kind of sports activity. And they believe that these activities have positive effects that help them on the job.
