Bodybuilding and fitness, which is usually considered a male-dominated sport, is a male dominated sport, according to a new survey.
The survey by Bodybuilding.com found that women made up 47.6 per cent of all bodybuilders, while men made up 45.3 per cent.
“I am a bodybuilder and this is a very male-oriented sport,” one male bodybuilder told the magazine.
“It’s just that I am the only one.”
While the majority of bodybuilders in the survey said they were women, the study also found that about 40 per cent said they had competed in mixed martial arts (MMA) events in the past year.
“Women are a bigger target market than men for competitive bodybuilding,” Bodybuilding said in a statement.
“The popularity of mixed martial art (Muay Thai) is only growing and there is still a gender gap.
The survey found that men are much more likely to be female in the US, where they make up about 55 per cent, compared to 45 per cent in Britain and 39 per cent for Canada. “
Bodybuilding.org’s new survey is designed to help us identify the best of the best.”
The survey found that men are much more likely to be female in the US, where they make up about 55 per cent, compared to 45 per cent in Britain and 39 per cent for Canada.
The report also found men have had more success competing in MMA events, although they still outnumber women.
The study also revealed that women are less likely to compete in the most popular sports.
Bodybuilding also found women are more likely than men to compete at the highest level, and are more successful than men at making money in the sport.
“Men are more inclined to compete on the higher end of the scale than women,” the study said.
“Male and female competitors also compete at very similar levels, with the exception of a female competitor competing in the ‘top of the pile’ category, which has a higher salary.”
The Bodybuilding website has a bodybuilding section and offers competitions in weightlifting, bodybuilding fitness, powerlifting, powerwalking, bodyweight lifting and powerlifting and rowing.
