In 2020, online training came on stronger than the 90s trend. The pandemic meant that people shifted their habits to exercise at home. As an added bonus, many realized the appeal and flexibility of at-home workouts.
Through the magic of tech, it’s now possible to take literally any kind of fitness class online: yoga, barre, spin—the list goes on and on. Virtual group fitness has become the new “it thing” (just take a peek at Peloton’s stock prices for proof!), allowing people around the world to build a sense of community and exercise simultaneously. For the more introverted among us, one-on-one online training is a great option. With everything online training has going for it, it’s easy to see why many people want to continue exercising at home even as gyms reopen. Online training is here to stay, so it’s important for trainers to adapt quickly to ensure they aren’t left behind.
Check out this short clip to see why online training presents a huge opportunity for fitness professionals to grow their business.
