Yoga leads fitness class searches by far in the 16 states that include Texas, California, and Illinois , . Yoga is especially favored in the Northeast, as states such as New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.

A spokesperson for Fitness Volt commented on the study:

“The popularity of fitness classes first became apparent in the 1970s and are still as popular as they have ever been today, with people eager to reap the benefits of a workout in the form of organized group exercise.
