Fitness Services: Where the Industry is Headed (Club Solutions)

After all that 2020 has brought — both good and bad — the health and fitness industry is ready to move forward. Five industry leaders share their predictions of what the top industry trends and fitness services will be in 2021.

“Hybrid at-home and in-club activities and content-driven value through technology — such as mobile apps, social, member pages and celebration or reward for positive actions — which improve health will continue to increase and is something that we have continued to heavily invest in after the pandemic. But at the end of the day, health clubs are not going away and I believe they will actually be more relevant than ever.”, says Andrew Alfano, the CEO of Retro Fitness.

With gyms and fitness studios temporarily shuttered earlier this year to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, consumers found alternate outlets to break a sweat — namely virtual, on-demand fitness programs.

For Retro Fitness — a chain of 150 gym locations across the US — wading into virtual programming during the pandemic ultimately helped to accelerate the company’s pre-pandemic push towards becoming a “lifestyle brand,” according to Chief Marketing Officer Victor Bao.

He added that this effort included streaming classes taught by Retro instructors, but also mental health and nutritional content. Just last week, the company launched “Retro Fitness Kitchen,” a series of healthy cooking videos available to members. Bao said that while on-demand exercise platforms are now ubiquitous, the market is still not oversaturated leaving an opportunity for Retro Fitness to capitalize on the trend.

Fitness Franchises to provide more in gym options in 2019

Across the board, every gym and/or fitness brand sees a spike in memberships in the first quarter of the year, with consumers starting the year off strong with new year resolutions and a serious commitment to reaching their health and wellness goals. While this is a natural seasonal spike in the industry, here are the anticipated 2019 fitness trends in the $30 billon industry — with a mix of both new experiences and traditional standards back in popularity.

Consumers are seeking high-value, personalized fitness options and flexibility. We saw this with the success of services like Class Pass and people having more than one fitness membership. People want the flexibility to be able to catch a spin class with their friends, train for a team warrior competition and still enjoy a workout independently in a traditional gym setting. To avoid muscle memory and boredom, members need more than one experience to stimulate and challenge their mind and body. While they want their fitness level to improve, once the body catches up, they will need a new workout experience to tackle.
