According to the SFIA 2021 Exercise Monitoring Report, by 2020, fitness levels will be strong, with more than 200 million participants participating in 2019, and the epidemic has changed the way in which individuals can engage.

In-house, out-of-home, or digital activities were developed, and activities at health clubs or other closed fitness centers were struggling with the closure of the health club. Walking, bodybuilding, yoga, running and free weights were the most common forms of exercise among Americans during the epidemic.

“Despite the challenges we face in CV-19, many Americans are eager to stay awake,” said Tom Cove, president and CEO of SFIA. “We have seen individuals adjust to the nature and location of their physical activity. Although the linked exercise increased before the epidemic, it allowed active Americans to communicate digitally. We have seen additional capabilities in conjunction with the ability to physically move from home and use digital devices in conjunction with social outreach activities.

A.D. In 2020, one unique feature of fitness was the fact that Americans were more focused on one activity than the previous trend. With so many health clubs closed for so long, Americans had so many options to stay active in common facilities, and in turn, we saw a 40.5 percent increase in home sales. Some top sellers include free weights, more than 104 percent increase in home sales, while other items are seeing a sharp increase from 2019, such as home gym (74 percent), exercise cycles (67.1 percent), paddle machines (47.1 percent) and treadmill (44%).

“While we look forward to it, it may take some time, but we believe that the health club user will return to the clubs,” Cove said. “It attracts and motivates returnees and new fitness enthusiasts, along with a wide range of fitness options, new equipment, group classes and personalized training.”
