The study of fitness is the chameleon of the Dutch sport, is mentioned, as there are constantly new concepts being developed. Ten years ago, the fitness room is still out, cardio, resistance training, or group exercise classes, but for now, there are all kinds of different things. Think aqua-fitness, boot camp, CrossFit, or bodybalance.
Trend 1: more women work out of their butt

Such training, women are, according to him, at this point, especially in their rear, and there is a new device on the market that allow the hip trust, which also has the bilpartij stronger for it, and you can do it. More and more brands are making this device a according to him.
According to the study, the Mulier Institute, a growing number of fitnessbedrijven quite a bit more. Between 2007 and 2018, with an increase in the number of branches, with 78 percent of the time. The leaders of the industry are BasicFit, SportCity/Fit for Free, and Anytime Fitness. The top ten fitnessaanbieders have worked together for about a quarter of all centres in the owned and operated for more than a third of all the members of the fitness centers.
Trend 2: the subscription to the various areas of sports and
However, that position is similar to the health clubs, according to Gijsbregt-Builder, trend watcher when it comes to food and sport, and, perhaps, to get rid of. There is a large trend in fitnessland; a subscription is that you do not have one gym, you’re stuck.
With the apps, OneFit, and Classpass allows you to have all attached a variety of restaurants to go. So that you can one day go to a gym that specializes in kickboxing, the next one to be a professional yoga teacher or a day at the gym, at the corner of the street.

Since they only work with the rittenkaarten, and you’ll pay € 20 for a lesson, but then you would have a state-of-the area. Cool music, disco music, a good vibe to it.”
“Why do people that have money on them? Because it’s trendy. People want to be at a certain restaurant in the city, or at a particular nightclub, the nightlife and if you’ve got a group of people for this scene.”
How (un)healthy it is running in the city.
The examination of the Mulier Institute confirms that the rise of the boutiquegyms.

Do long distance runners, for example, their progress on Strava, and be able to cyclists, virtually on the beach or in the mountains, cycling by Zwift. The coach of the Zwift seems like it’s on a screen, just as in the real world, the cycle, and you may be competing against each other. “Competition motivates me. The advantage of using Zwift is in addition to that, it is, therefore, ideal for the coming seasons.”
