Over the past year, the fitness industry in APAC has seen dramatic shifts—much in part due to COVID-19. Singapore is no exception. Gyms and fitness studios around the country were forced to close and move their training services online. Consumers were forced to exercise from home using live streamed or on-demand workouts.
As a result, fitness trends and consumer preferences have evolved across Singapore. For now, packed in-person workouts at the gym are a thing of the past. Virtual workouts, social distancing, and heightened sanitisation protocols are what consumers now look for from their favourite fitness facility.
