A recent ACE and Innov8 Health study of fitness professionals provides additional supporting evidence for the demand, usefulness and credibility of accurate fitness wearables like MYZONE within the gym community. The study conducted gave clear insight into the opportunity that our MYZONE partner facilities possess as clubs that are able to endorse and offer fitness wearables.
This study of fitness professionals showed:
- 72% reported that their clients consistently ask for insight and feedback on fitness wearables, most commonly related to making a purchase. Clients want to know about the accuracy of wearables and if they are capable of helping them meet their goals. Sadly, the survey indicated that only 51% of fitness professionals truly felt prepared to answer their clients wearables questions.
- 71% of responders own a fitness tracker, and 61% of those who do not yet own one are considering purchasing one.
- 71% said that they would be interested in allowing clients to purchase wearables, either directly from them or by using a promotional code online. (That number then increased slightly when the possibility of the trainer earning revenue from the sale was introduced.)
- 75% of those who completed the survey said that they would be interested in the capability to run fitness challenges with clients using fitness wearables.
