For all those dads out there, we're about to make your Father's Day a lot better because a new survey revealed that women prefer the "Dad bod" over a six-pack.

So grab those beers and celebrate because according to a Planet fitness study, more Americans believe that there is bigger acceptance of the "Dad bod" than in previous years.

Women - 61 per cent to be exact - also agree, saying that they find the less toned male physique a lot "sexier".

But it doesn't stop here because even men are happier with their body and have admitted that having a "Dad bod" has made them more relaxed and improved their life in some way.

47 per cent said their body type has made them less concerned with their appearance, which was acknowledged also by women, of which 4 out of 5 believe a "dad bod" is a sign of a man "who is confident in his own skin".

Jamie Medeiros, Vice President of Marketing at Planet Fitness added:

As home of the Judgement Free Zone, we’re proud to offer a comfortable environment for all of our members, regardless of body type.

This Father’s Day, Planet Fitness is challenging everyone, and not just dads, to be comfortable in their own skin and accept others for who they are.

So as you spend the day feeling loved by all those around you, you can go to sleep happy tonight knowing that 2019 is finally the year where the dad bod has become the new six-pack.
