1 day ago
It’s a pity you won’t be able to access the gyms and outdoor spaces anymore. The entire fitness community is now moving online. said nobody. Apparently the recent events and trends concerning fitness have seen a massive online activity. An exclusive online report by AMR; Allied Market Research foretells that the virtual fineness market will reach about $60 billion by 2027. Now that’s a long time to come. But let’s talk about what’s been happening in the fitness industry right here, right now. Also, we’ll explore what potentials these new fitness trends and how it has evolved within a short time. You might have realized that recently, you don’t need to be in the gym to get a fitness instructor who will assist you with your workout plans and routine. This must have started since the introduction of mobile phone applications. Yes, since the influx of mobile applications that help you decrypt the challenge of what to train and and how frequently. They even include short videos for demonstration purposes. In the past years, fitness has been rapidly moved towards becoming something that we can all access via the internet. Until recently, it had been gradual, especially if you consider the fitness mobile apps and occasionally, web applications. However, some events have fast tracked the movement and now fitness is becoming more accessible via the internet more than ever. Factors that influenced online fitness and how it evolved The coronavirusYou might be wondering when online fitness became a thing. You probably didn’t even realize the gradual shift. Since it was initially gradual, we cannot pinpoint a particular period when the fitness industry moved online. However, one of the most obvious periods of online fitness was during the times when the novel coronavirus hit hard. Many people were stuck at home hoping that the virus infections would soon be over. However, several fitness lovers took to their mobile devices; phones and personal computers to get fit. Problem solved. Interest from older adultsAnother motivation for the fitness business to become an online thing is the fact that many older adults are somehow easily taken to getting fit via the online platforms. Perhaps this is as a result of their being less mobile than the younger folk. They especially seem to enjoy the virtual training sessions. This is proper guidance on the way to go about the exercises and routines. Dominance of body weight fitness Bodyweight exercise offers many people a cheap and effective way to work. Since it does not require any equipment many people are willing to jump on a virtual fitness program that automatically doesn’t come with all the extra weight. Online training might have taken away the extra motivation that a physical trainer offers. Yet, it didn’t stop fitness enthusiasts from getting the best out of the terrible lockdown situation. In fact with superiors data connections one could perhaps conduct an online training session or follow recorded training videos. And that’s the potential big online fitness staring you in the face. Online fitness has and would help break barriers. How would the online fitness industry function? So far, the online fitness practices are almost without any hitch. Besides the event of slow internet connection at times, there isn’t much to discredit the new movement. And the fact that fitness is now online doesn’t make the exercises performed any less effective. The basic things that are involved in a physical training session can easily be reproduced online. There is the tangible aspect of motivation which is based on communication between the trainer and client. Also the new wave of body weight exercises makes fitness possible almost anywhere. Since the online space is almost solely based on communication, personal trainers can motivate their clients from several kilometers apart and more. In fact, this trend has encouraged the patronage of clients and personal trainers over longer distances which wouldn't have been the case if the COVID19 pandemic didn’t push the start button for online fitness to boom. Who can participate in online fitness? Apparently, the elderly love it. That doesn’t make it restricted to them alone. A lot of young people are also involved in online fitness in one way or the other. This is going to become the new normal for fitness. Keeping fit can be done in the convenience of your home without the need to physically meet with any fitness coach. Also, there is less stress involved. Rather than the hassle involved in going from place to place for either the trainer or the client, it can be done at either party’s convenience instead. When the stakeholders love it there’s usually no stopping it. This new way of fitness which is online is enormously supported by several stakeholders. There is much to benefit from the online fitness movement for all players involved — whether one is a trainer, fitness enthusiast or a business tycoon. What will online fitness be like going forward? For now we can all enjoy the ease of working out from anywhere we choose to be and still getting access to the best training materials and the best trainers that we can afford. Somehow, the movement started with mobile applications that allow many people access to several training content. Then as the coronavirus became a thing there was an increase in virtual fitness training. Taking note that these mediums of training existed before the virus. For the foreseeable future, it’s likely that the bodyweight training trend as well as the need to take precautions and the general positive support for online fitness will spur more investments into making online fitness stay.
