Two recently published reports by leading wellness platforms ClassPass and Mindbody point to a healthy picture for studios, salons and spas in 2022.

The reports — focused on the US market — indicate consumers are increasingly eager to return to in-person classes and appointments in the new year, while a growing number are investing in their immune, mental and even sexual wellness.

The 2021 ClassPass Fitness and Beauty Trends Report, published last week, revealed that in 2021 bookings were up 10% on pre-pandemic levels, with strength training and nail treatments the most popular categories, and dance classes trending strongly.
