Despite recent reports revealing that the UK health and fitness industry is booming*, our national love affair with
the gym could be coming to an end.
GoSweat, the online sports marketplace, reports that the drop in popularity of traditional pay-monthly gyms is likely a result of a backlash against pricey membership fees and lengthy contracts.
It’s well reported that Brits waste a staggering amount of money every year on unused gym memberships – in fact a recent poll of 1,000 gym members found that 11 per cent said that despite paying an average of £47 a month – that’s £564 a year on a gym membership – they hadn’t gone**.
With a rising trend for less traditional and more unique ways of keeping fit, GoSweat allows users to easily discover and book sport and fitness activities near them at the click of a button, offering users complete flexibility, no membership or strings-attached. Not only that, it will connect users with 1000’s of different sports providers throughout the UK so there really is something new to try every single day of the week.
GoSweat Co-Founder Stephanie Newport-Booth said: Gone are the days of simply just going to a gym and plodding away for hours on the treadmill. Our customers want to discover different types of workouts, and that’s exactly why we have created GoSweat.
“We’re bombarded with offers for health and fitness memberships which can ask for a lot of money and commitment up front – but it’s become outdated – and quite frankly it’s off-putting for millions of people looking for ways to be active. The good news is that we make discovering sports simple, so anyone can find any sport, at any time.
Our handy search tool even highlights the providers offering a Free Trial, giving our users the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’!”
GoSweat is plugging a gap in the fitness industry, allowing users to simply search by day, price, time, review and distance for the best, most local sports and fitness activities to suit them. With 1,000’s of weekly activities to choose from, there really is something for everyone.
