Popular sports and fitness in Vietnam
Sports have been ingrained in Vietnamese culture, even during the French colonial period and the Vietnam war. Football has been the most popular sport among Vietnamese people, both for exercising and as sports content for watching, followed by badminton. Exercises in the form of fitness have been growing in popularity in recent years, with walking, running, and cycling being the most favored fitness activities among people of all ages. Despite the growing number of fitness centers across the country, public parks are still the most favored locations for fitness exercises.
State of health in Vietnam
Compared to its neighbors, Vietnam has the lowest prevalence of obesity in the ASEAN region. On the other hand, the rate of obesity in the country has slowly been increasing, partially due to income growth and the rise in convenience and fast-food consumption. At the same time, health-conscious consumers, especially in urban areas, have been switching to perceived healthier food choices, such as plant-based products and organic food items.
