It seems gyms, fitness centers, training such as yoga, health food store or nutrition shops, or any thong related to fitness and exercise is overwhelmingly white. no matter where you go, its mostly whites and few blacks.

hence is this trend so common are blacks not into it

True, Ive never seen a black person at a gym. Maybe that’s why 67% of them are overweight.

That is very true, my wife and I have been going to the gym for years and I’ve never seen a black person there.

Because blacks are naturally more muscular and toned, than whites.

Hey… maybe it is an "American thing", here in London, England, Black people frequent the gyms a LOT!
Visit health stores and the like.
The thinking in parts of America about a group/groups of specific humans seems pretty backwards…wow!

Bernard,

Where do you live? You obviously have not been out of your house. The health and fitness industry is saturated with all types of races and cultures. I’m sorry you have had this kind of experience. As a certified personal trainer and earning a master degree in gynecology, I have NEVER only experienced Caucasians in this industry.
