Tellwut survey finds 39% will not return to gym or will return less frequently after COVID-19, Revolutionizing the Fitness Industry


News Image

The future of the fitness industry following the COVID-19 pandemic points to a massive drop-off of in-person services, but a steady increase in the demographic of active people, proving that new means of fitness will be more feasible.

Covid-19 has forced gyms and fitness centers to temporarily close down, but the longer exercise facilities remain closed, the more comfortable people become in their home workout routines. As people discover the ease in which they can work out at home, the desire to return to their expensive gym memberships diminishes. Another aspect which makes a return unlikely is the investment people are putting into their home gyms, making their houses better suited for working out, while also incentivizing them to stay home and continue to use them.

Tellwut’s survey found that 40% of the respondents who spent money on fitness prior to the pandemic are no longer spending money to stay active during stay-at-home measures, and of that, 16% say they will continue to not spend money on fitness even when gyms are open. 52% of respondents stated that they were still spending money on fitness, but were now spending less during the pandemic while remaining physically active, and of that, 31% are expecting to maintain this decrease in spending following the end of stay-at-home measures.

Alongside the decrease in spending on gym memberships is an increase in spending on home workout equipment, as 21% of respondents stated they have purchased equipment for their home gym during the pandemic, and 49% stating they already owned equipment for their gym prior to social distancing measures. This displays the high-level of adaptability of people to work out without fitness classes or the gym, as it shows the increase in the demographic of people able to work out at home with an increase in which workouts are feasible for them.

Of the equipment purchased during COVID-19, treadmills and free weights seemed to be the most popular among survey respondents, but others purchased a variety of stationary bikes, Peloton Bikes and ellipticals. 6% answered that they had purchased a stationary bike or a Peloton Bike, meaning that there is an increase in the market which can participate in virtual spin classes.

As with many other service industries, gyms and workout classes will suffer purely because of the fear of spreading COVID-19. For these businesses to retain their original customers, gyms will have to put into place significant measures to ensure sanitation. Tellwut respondents mainly favored heavy sanitation and distancing protocols, but there was a large request for capacity restrictions and customer screening.

The pandemic has also increased the market of physically active people, as 13% of the survey group who did not work out before the pandemic, began to work out at home, and 14% of those who previously worked out at home now find themselves increasing their daily physical activity. This presents a new opportunity for virtual workout options, which would exist at a discounted price to traditional gym memberships.

Of the people working out from home, the most popular responses for how they found their workouts were free apps, free routines, or free online descriptions of workouts. This hints that people are less likely to pay for digital workouts as an abundance of free resources are already available.

All of this points to the potential of digital workout spaces, given an increase in physically active people and a lessening desire to attend workout classes and gyms because of health concerns along with the ensuing financial benefit. The future of the fitness industry following the COVID-19 pandemic points to a massive drop-off of in-person services, but a steady increase in the demographic of active people, proving that new means of fitness will be more feasible.

Nucamp Joins ReSkill America Laptop Initiative to Help Underserved Communities Disproportionately Impacted by COVID-19 Learn to Code


“We’re excited to help those who get laptops through the ReSkill America Initiative become software developers and re-enter the workforce with a strong coding foundation to access good paying jobs.” Fourrage, founder and Chief Learning Officer at Nucamp

Nucamp (http://www.nucamp.co), a leading provider of nationwide affordable software coding bootcamps, today announced it has joined forces with Career Karma and the Kapor Foundation to support the ReSkill America’s Laptop Initiative. ReSkill America is raising $500,000 to donate laptops to underserved communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. To connect those laptops to careers in software development, Nucamp is opening up a $10,000 ReSkill America Scholarship Coding Bootcamp Fund to distribute scholarships to low income communities who need them most. Nucamp has also donated $5,000 to the fundraising initiative.

Career Karma, an online community of 100,000 members committed to helping people find jobs in technology, launched the ReSkill America Laptop Initiative on behalf of the Kapor Center, a family of organizations that works to remove barriers to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and technology. The ReSkill America Laptop Initiative includes organizations like Grubhub, GitHub, Backstage Capital, YCombinator, Collab Capital and more and aims to give away thousands of laptops to communities impacted by Covid-19. All donations are tax deductible.

“Laptops don’t just give people access to technology but they also provide people with the tools to pursue a better career and a better future for their family,” said Timur Meyster, co-founder at Career Karma. “We’re excited to have Nucamp participate and offer their students across 35 cities in the U.S. this opportunity to pursue a career in tech regardless of the barrier of not having a laptop.”

Nucamp’s Affordable Coding Bootcamp Model

Ludo Fourrage, who worked at Microsoft for 18 years leading the development of digital learning, started Nucamp after seeing a significant affordability and accessibility gap with coding bootcamps, especially for those who are underemployed yet working full-time jobs. The company opened up nationwide access to its coding education earlier this year for under $2,000, a huge shift from traditional coding bootcamps that typically cost $10,000-$20,000. Nucamp’s part-time, 22-week full stack web and mobile development bootcamps are officially available in big and small cities across the U.S. Support of the ReSkill America Laptop Initiative aligns perfectly with Nucamp’s mission to revolutionize how people access rewarding careers in software development, without requiring a college degree or expensive education.

“There are numerous rewarding careers in software development, but gaining access to those jobs require modern laptops that allow people to learn to code,” said Fourrage, founder and Chief Learning Officer at Nucamp. “We’re excited to help those who get laptops through the ReSkill America Initiative become software developers and re-enter the workforce with a strong coding foundation to access good paying jobs.”

The Nucamp ReSkill America Coding Bootcamp Scholarship Fund will be on a first-come, first-served basis until the fund is depleted. Scholarships are available for Nucamp’s following coding bootcamps:

*4 Week Web Development Fundamentals Coding Bootcamp

*17 Weeks Front End Web and Mobile Development Coding Bootcamp

*22 weeks Full Stack Web and Mobile Development Coding Bootcamp

Visit here for more information on how the scholarship works.

About Nucamp

Nucamp’s mission is to help all aspiring career shifters currently left out of the digital economy learn to code. Nucamp offers the industry’s only truly affordable 22-week coding bootcamp for under $2,000, and delivers a high-quality curriculum in small classes of 12 maximum students using a unique hybrid evening and weekend format. Our model relies on carefully selected industry professionals who want to share their passion for coding in their local community. With Nucamp, whether you live in a big city, a suburb or a rural area, you can get the coding skills you need without quitting your job, getting into debt, or having to share your future income.

This includes, but is not limited to assessment of individual gut health, determination of neurotransmitter deficiencies and personalized anti-oxidant level screening.

Dr. Bishara’s experience as a physician and her own personal journey has taught her that success in weight loss is not limited to just dietary and nutritional needs. It involves identifying multiple factors and creating the specific formula your body needs to achieve success.

Faith-based Wellness Program, Think Fit Method, Donates to PrayFit to Help Solve the Mobility Crisis and to Fund Special Needs Ministry


“Honoring God with our bodies isn’t measured by our waist, but by our reach.” – Jimmy Peña

According to the World Health Organization, 70 million people live without the gift of mobility, having no way of getting from one room to the next. Of those 70 million, only 5-15 percent of them have access to the most basic of resources to help them make their way to the bathroom, from their home to school or to a friend’s house.

Think Fit Method, a women’s faith-based wellness program, officially announced that a portion of every sale of their program will go to PrayFit, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the fitness industry to the doorstep of disability. The monthly contribution to PrayFit will help those with limited to no mobility by giving them access to a wheelchair.

Think Fit Method is a women’s faith-based lifestyle program focusing on whole body wellness for your mind, body and spirit. The program teaches women about a balanced approach to macronutrient cycling and tracking, intuitive fasting and strategic exercise while conquering negative mindset, emotional eating and self-sabotage on the journey to food freedom.

“We are honored to partner with PrayFit Ministries in effort to help bridge the gap between fitness and disability,” said Jenny Mire, founder of Think Fit Method. “As a brand partner, we fully support the efforts in ministering to those in need and we will do everything in our power to help spread the cause. There is no better way to serve God than by serving His people and I cannot wait to see how He provides for so many in need.”

PrayFit’s founder, Jimmy Peña, an exercise physiologist and best-selling author, has a mission to fund disability ministries in local communities and help purchase wheelchairs for those around the world who live without the gift of mobility.

“Mobility changes everything,” Peña said. “As we look ahead to the next two years, our hope is to impact both local communities and those in the farthest corners of the world. We can see how God is providing many paths to reach people with disabilities and we are excited to help the fitness industry pursue those paths. Our goal in the near future is to reach 5,000 children and families living with disabilities in the US and provide 2,000 wheelchairs to people desperate for mobility around the world.”

“When I saw those numbers and heard the heart behind PrayFit, I knew I needed to do something,” Mire said. “We look forward to supporting the organization for many years to come and getting our program members involved as well.”

Peña holds firm to the truth of “honoring God with our bodies isn’t measured by our waist, but by our reach.” This is exactly what the Think Fit Method hopes to accomplish by coming alongside them.
