Women prefer rock climbers to bodybuilders

Contrary to what many men may think, women don’t like bodybuilders nearly as much as they like rock climbers, at least in the UK. Here, women consider rock climbing the sexiest sport for men.

In a recent research conducted by Quirkology, 6000 people were asked to indicate whether they would find a member of the opposite sex more attractive if they engaged in one of 15 sporting/physical activities.

Results revealed that 57% of women found climbing attractive, making it the sexiest sport from a female perspective. This was closely followed by extreme sports (56%), football (52%), and hiking (51%). Bottom of their list came aerobics and golf, with just 9% and 13% of the vote respectively.

In contrast, men were most attracted to women into aerobics (70%), followed by yoga (65%), and going to the gym (64%). Bottom of their list came bodybuilding (5%), rugby (6%), and golf (18%).

Where does this leave us? Guys: get out of the gym, start rock climbing and running. Girls: keep up the good work!
