The fitness industry is continuously growing and changing due to technology at our fingertips. With personal training software and fitness apps, in-person and at-home training sessions are transforming. We stand at the threshold of the next generation of group fitness where community, innovation, and technology collide to redefine the way we exercise and connect. Nike is set to launch Nike Studios which will be a network of boutique fitness studios opening later this year. I believe these fitness studios will be successful for 3 reasons:

1. In-Person Expert Guidance & Accountability
For years now, Nike Training Club has provided free workouts ranging from bodyweight strength training to running workouts, and yoga sessions. Users can customize their workouts to match their fitness levels and goals. The app automatically schedules workouts to keep users accountable and to help track progress.

With the nearing addition of in-person facilities, Nike Studios will have coaches that provide live feedback, motivational support, and exercise instruction that cannot be found virtually. Group fitness classes like these create a structured schedule, making it easier for clients to establish a consistent workout routine and reduce the likelihood of missed workouts.

2. Energetic & Inclusive Environment 
The dynamic class structure naturally creates an energetic environment. Clients of all fitness levels are motivated by the collective energy and enthusiasm of the group. Friendly competition in this setting can also serve as a powerful motivator. Achieving milestones alongside peers ignites a sense of accomplishment and drives individuals to push their limits.

The shared commitment to achieving fitness goals within the group fitness setting, helps foster a sense of community, making it more likely for individuals to adhere to their workouts. Humans are constantly seeking social experiences and meaningful interactions which is what makes group fitness classes so appealing. Clients can connect with other like-minded individuals who share similar struggles, goals, and interests.

3. Innovative Hybrid Fitness Vision
Nike’s hybrid fitness vision is innovative. It combines the ease and accessibility of the digital world with the community and accountability involved with face-to-face interactions. Nike continues to take major strides to provide a favorable blend of fitness services. In order to start your workout journey, you need workout clothes. They have you covered. Next you will need structured workouts that are easily accessible. They have you covered. Then, you want to feel a sense of community and get live feedback from coaches…they will soon, have you covered!
