Consumers are back to in-person bookings, even surpassing pre-pandemic numbers in some areas.

Mindbody data revealed that 82% of app users are booking in-person appointments, while 14% are still seeking virtual offerings.

The report also found that 35% of participants started attending in-person fitness classes they discovered via previous virtual fitness offerings. In addition, 70% of consumers are visiting fitness studios when they work from home, and they are twice as likely to try out a new studio or fitness class. It's no surprise, then, that more than 25% of Mindbody fitness providers plan to grow their business into more locations by Dec. 2022.
