:With the current situation surround Covid-19, many regular gym goers have built makeshift home gyms are embracing home workouts with minimal equipment.
Will this enthusiasm last and will the home gyms become a hanger for clothes, disused as we slowly transition back to normal?
From my discussions with many of my current personal training clients, I’ve discovered a few key themes:
Keen to get that in-person interaction, many have suggested mobile personal training would be a service that they’d use.
As government restrictions slowly lift, the masses won’t be rushing back to large commercial gyms. Industry research has indicated that as many as 75% of people won’t return to the gym straight away. In smaller, private set ups this statistic was inverted to 75% of people being happy enough to return. I think this difference is largely due to personal relationships that have been developed, the trust and integrity and of course the communication and efforts that have been taken to confirm with hygiene and distancing standards.
Many gyms will have reduced capacity to accommodate distancing and it may well become harder to get booked into your favourite sessions.
To serve those who are unsure about leaving their homes (and also those who are conscious of their own time), I’m now developing an At-Home Personal Training in Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
This service is unavailable for the time being but as soon as measures are relaxed and it is appropriate, I’ll launch this service.
