‘Hybrid fitness’

Working out doesn’t stop even during a pandemic.

The importance of health was magnified when Covid-19 struck. With no cure in sight, fortifying one’s immune system is imperative.

One way to be physically healthy, apart from maintaining a balanced diet, is exercise. However, with gyms closed, there are not many options left.

This led to hybrid fitness — gym subscriptions allowing access to both physical and online workouts. This innovation was crafted by Asia’s largest network of health clubs, Evolution Fitness.

The new trend gives access to both physical and online workouts.

The network’s CEO Simon Flint said that the new trend was brought about by global data showing that 90 percent of respondents remain committed to staying fit and healthy; and 65 percent have participated in online fitness programs since the pandemic started. However, the remaining 39 percent still find the gym the best place for their wellness fix.

Hence, hybrid fitness.

This global data bears a similarity with the Philippine data that shows 77 percent inclined toward online workouts. Filipino gym rats, nonetheless, experienced a 36-percent drop in satisfaction with their respective workouts.

Evolution Wellness country manager Mark Ellis explained their new offerings that cater to hybrid fitness subscribers.

“We’ve made virtual classes a permanent offering accessible through our mobile apps in the form of Virtual Studio, while Fit Kit leverages our relationship with fitness equipment suppliers to curate several kits at very attractive prices for home workout use,” Ellis said.

Cleanliness can also be achieved at the gym.

He added that polishing this game-changing fitness trend has been Evolution Wellness’ initiative even prior to the pandemic through MyStyle and MyFit promotions.

“We designed this membership type to give our members and customers great flexibility and control over what they want from their gym membership,” Ellis said.

He concluded that their member gyms such as Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First also adhere to strict hygiene protocols to keep their members safe.
