This is more of a thinking out loud/fielding opinion type post. I have been amazed by how many people in the US actually bought gym equipment during the lockdown and continue to buy. It’s pretty easy to see as evidenced by so many things being sold out and looking at forums and seeing how many people are talking about their new home gym or plans to begin one.
My belief is that in major cities there will have to be some as not everyone is going to stuff a gym into a studio or one bedroom, but I just don’t see how this model continues in suburban/rural areas.
I’d love to hear peoples’ opinions on whether or not commercial gyms have any real viability going forward given my view may be shaped by where I live (NY/CT area).
