Because gyms are either closed or operating in a limited capacity, people have decided to take matters into their own arms as health and fitness apps saw a 67% surge in global installs from March to April compared to the same period last year. This higher installation surge then led to a 61% jump in user sessions in May as users finally caught on.
This sudden rise in fitness apps show that many people have shifted their exercise routines to their homes. As you know, Gold's Gym filed for bankruptcy protection in May, reflecting the impact of the pandemic.
Still, the issue moving forward is whether people will come back to gyms that have reopened or change their habits.
Personally, I've started cycling in my province (with great results). What about you? Chime in.
