Additionally, compared to underdeveloped countries, industrialized countries have far higher levels of total fitness awareness among women. However, the situation is rapidly changing in emerging nations as a result of initiatives taken by the governments of those nations to encourage women to actively participate in sports and other fitness-related activities.
