The pandemic has had a significant impact on the fitness industry. Gyms and fitness studios like Truve were forced to close during lockdowns and social distancing measures were put in place causing many fitness businesses to struggle to survive.
One of the most significant impacts was that these closures caused people to shift towards online fitness. With people unable to go to the gym, many turned to online workouts and virtual training sessions as a way to stay active. This led to a surge in demand for at-home fitness equipment and online fitness subscriptions.
The pandemic has also forced many fitness businesses to adapt their operations to meet new health and safety requirements. Gyms and fitness studios have had to implement strict cleaning protocols, limit class sizes, and enforce social distancing measures. At Truve we require everyone to be vaccinated to make sure we are keeping our clients as safe as possible.
Now that the strictest of times is behind us, are you curious which is better for you, in person personal training sessions or classes or to continue with virtual personal training sessions over zoom or another platform?
There are definite pros and cons to both.
In person training sessions allow you to have personal connection, access to a larger variety of equipment, and improved form evaluation.
Virtual sessions allow for more convenience if you have a busy schedule and can be great for those who travel often or are introverts. Virtual sessions are particularly great for those who do have a compromised immune system or live with someone who does.
Personally, I recommend both. You have to figure out what works best for you at each stage of your life and make it work for you. All of our trainers at Alison Roessler Fitness and Truve can accommodate both in person and virtual personal training sessions.
If the pandemic helped with one thing, it helped changed many people's attitudes towards health and fitness. The importance of staying healthy and fit to fight off illnesses was thrust into the spotlight.
Many people have made a renewed commitment to their health and fitness. Are you one of those people?
