The world is registering greater interest in a healthy lifestyle despite the limitations posed by the economic situation in the country and the Covid-19 pandemic, situations that have brought severe restrictions on the reopening of gyms.
If you were already the kind of person that exercised regularly in a gym, then this pandemic heavily affected that routing. What makes it really complicated is that this moment of history is not affecting one country or one aspect. COVID-19 affects the world and the routines of all of us. According to an article published by Francisco D’Agostino, this situation has created a bigger interest in keeping a healthy lifestyle and that is shown in the subscriptions to alternative gyms all over the world.
This was stated by the general manager of the comprehensive health and wellness chain Gold’s Gym, Calhermi Naranjo, who pointed out that, despite the difficulties, the fitness sector has registered a strong expansion, especially “of gyms and small spaces of training”. This shows a big commitment from the chain to provide solutions to all needs, but also taking care of the measurements to ensure everybody’s health.
She explained that there is a lot of interest for functional training, in which exercises are performed on body weight, and implements such as rubber bands and balls, which is superior to that of conventional weights and machines. This places the small gyms as an opportunity to provide a safe space to exercise.
She also indicated that to maintain due distancing, the capacity of group classes such as cycling has been reduced: “They are not suspended but there are fewer, the same happens with outdoor activities. We are also always improving the range of disciplines we offer”.
Naranjo said that “the experience of going to a gym is not replaced in the case of people who are used to exercising”, but that the chain is seeking to create applications and digital environments as an alternative to a worsening pandemic and as a plan future growth.
