1. A Quick Sweat Session for a Lunch
For the first time, the research shows that 12 pm is the most popular time to work out during the week. With more people working from home, people are spending their lunch breakfast moving their body.
2. Fitness Travel Is In, No Passport Required
With digital options, you are no longer limited to your geographical location, so it’s the perfect chance to take a dance class with a friend across the country or revisit a studio you loved on vacation. More than half of Classpass members are chiming in regularly for classes taught from other cities.
