26 Mar How close do you need to be to your gym?
“Your distance from the gym can affect how often you work out,” the Wall Street Journal’s Rachel Bachman reports. “People who commute more than 5 miles go much less often than those who live closer than 4 miles,” and as expected, people have a higher tolerance for going longer distances for quality instruction.
Of course, as you factor in traffic, bad weather, and other obstacles that life throws in the way, it’s harder to make it in – a frustration for both gyms, studios, and their members.
The big game changer here is that people can still access their favorite classes on BurnAlong when they can’t make it in. But BurnAlong goes beyond streaming fitness videos when you find time to workout. With BurnAlong you still have that human-to-human connection with friends and family you often exercise with because you can invite them to join a class in a private setting. Not only do you have the convenience of working out whenever and wherever you want, but you can continue to motivate, inspire and maybe even share a laugh with each other just as you would in a class setting.
At that point, it’s only the workout that will make you sweat (rather than the bumper-to-bumper traffic the morning news is warning about), and the only distance you need to worry about is from the bedroom to the living room.
