Crowded places present new risks - perceived and real - and social distancing is not going anywhere soon. These new realities will have a significant impact on gyms. That’s why it has become essential for gym owners to actively manage members’ visits, club cleaning, and staff preparedness in new ways.

- Key considerations for "gyms of the future"
- Trends accelerated by the pandemic and how to capitalize on this opportunity
- A look at an industry solution that provides you with:
- A flexible and easy way to adapt to quickly changing regulations and expectations
- A toolkit to reliably get members (back) into the gym and develop healthy habits
- Information to prepare you for the likely challenges of recurring lockdown scenarios
- John Ford (CEO, EGYM North America)
- Dana Milkie (VP Digital Solutions, EGYM)

“As our communities begin to open up again, technology in the health club and fitness space is going to become more important than ever as a tool to leverage for business success," said O'Rourke. “Also, with new customer dynamics to consider, it is crucial operators have a reliable plan.
