    Nice post

    I just bought some new dumbbells and am waiting for them to arrive. Used to gym at a YMCA and am glad I learned how to gym before moving it all in house. I started last May 2019. Thanks for standing up for fitness. I get so much fitness inspiration on social media.

    I think bodyweight calisthenic and yoga will be the trends in the future

    Forever = 8 months

    Woah first! Glad to see others gaining view for fitness. It’s motivational. I just started my channel and am gaining experience on attracting views too. It’s work and the path of a content creator.

    My current conclusion on quarantine:

    The best thing about a family: you are never alone

    The worst thing about a family: you are never alone

    : DDDD

    Beware. Gyms hire unlicensed trainers. I have a lifelong injury because of Gold’s Gym doing that.



  8. Jared Broughton on June 22, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    I’m not scheduling my workout in advance, COVID-19 checks and even have a time limit with a paid membership=screw that! That is more hassle than enjoyment. The motivation to go to a gym doesn’t appeal to me in these uncertain and frustrating times. We’ll all have to wait and see what post pandemic looks like for these environments.



  9. LivingAsTasha on June 22, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    I honestly think a lot of people will rethink their gym memberships when lockdown is over



  10. Redefine on June 22, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    You forgot to cover cure.fit India’s biggest fitness app



  11. crashweaverda on June 22, 2021 at 8:14 pm

  14. Balde Aguirre on June 22, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Afetr covid-19 I would never pay for another fitness class anymore.



  15. K4R3N on June 22, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Just need few more dumbbells and a flat bench and I will never step foot again in a gym again.



  16. JogBird on June 22, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    meh, im still riding my bike the same way



  17. Was Radiant on June 22, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    who else got this for school



  18. Akash on June 22, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Most of the people will definitely avoid going to gym until vaccine is available to all. Maybe home gym equipments will start selling more.



  19. Sean Notaro on June 22, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Interesting topic. My tuffmudder gym has gone digital and I luv it. You dont need alot (gym mat, few sets of dumbbells) and a willingness to change and keep motivated. I honestly luv it and you dont realize how much time and gas driving to and from the gym. It has forever changed my view.



  20. Aurobindo Ghosh on June 22, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    washing hands every time is another exercise of the wrists that the pandemic increased



  21. GENETIC BEAST on June 22, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Wow theres so many lazy people! Gotta make exercise videos!! 🙄🙄🙄🙄



  22. Maulu Mwenya on June 22, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    It’s a good time to evolve as trainers.



  23. jrukawa11 on June 22, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    overrated gym memberships



  24. Ali Hassan on June 22, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Dont you dare take gym out of my life. Home workout is for loosers



  25. Manav Mishra on June 22, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    There’s no comparison of outdoor workout..waiting lockdown to end..not enjoying workout at home!



  26. Javier on June 22, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    the pandemic will boost additional business models around the fitness industry (especially in the short term while people stay at home), but it will never change it to the degree this video portrays in the long term. People just don’t have all the weights and machinery required to really exercise in their houses so the industry will never change to that. Not only that, but even the most flexible and basic weights and machines are very costly and aren’t normally paid back until 4 years of usage compared to gym memberships.

    Fitness is drying now may can see home training is way to go news my channel is all home training
