With mobility restrictions due to Covid-19, more gym-goers rely on online workouts for their daily exercise and to continue their personal fitness goals, a leading fitness clubs operator in Asia said.
Evolution Wellness Philippines country manager Mark Ellis said its latest survey shows the number of gym subscribers using online platforms now increased compared to the pre-pandemic period.
According to a Kantar survey, 77 percent of Philippine respondents turned to online workouts amid the lockdowns from 35 percent before the pandemic.
Ellis said, “The results for the Philippines mirror the regional findings very closely.”
He added Covid-19 restrictions did not stop people to keep up with their fitness goals.
Instead of stopping their exercises, gym subscribers are doing a ‘hybrid approach’, or attending virtual classes and online fitness programs when they cannot go to the gym but still visit the gym whenever they can.
