Russell Jack, a Southland-based yoga teacher, comments on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the fitness industry in New Zealand.
INVERCARGILL, SOUTHLAND, NEW ZEALAND, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – As the coronavirus keeps gym doors closed, people are changing the way they approach fitness.
The Latest report on Habits for Healthy Living This shows that 91 percent of New Zealanders find workouts at home more beneficial than going to the gym. With more and more New Zealanders preferring home exercise trails, gym owners must wonder what their future will be.
“It’s interesting to see dumbbells disappear from the supermarket shelves as soon as the store opens in the morning. Some people told me they had to stand in line at seven in the morning to get to the store first. Otherwise, the most popular weights of 10, 15, and 20 pounds would be gone, ”says Russell.
Russell Herbert Jack, Southland The founder of Yoga Training is originally from Invercargill, New Zealand. Russell specializes in Vinyasa Yoga, Qigong and guided meditations. Vinyasa yoga, or flow yoga, increases awareness by moving seamlessly from one position to another with breath. As an entrepreneur in the fitness industry, the yoga expert sees firsthand what effects the coronavirus is having on the future of fitness.
Fortunately, there is more fitness at home than weight lifting. Bodyweight training offers a variety of exercises for all ages and fitness levels. I’m a big believer in yoga and cardio training, ”says Russell.
Exercising at home has the benefits of social distancing and security, the freedom to exercise alone and not with other people, saving money, and more flexible planning for work and personal calendars.
While some people wait in line to get exercise equipment at home, others simply gave up on their health goals after the gyms closed.
Studies show that anxiety and stress can be the main cause of breaking established healthy habits. This domino effect leads to exercise routines being skipped and not getting proper sleep. The idea of a gym for some people is easier to digest than finding the motivation to exercise at home. For many people, the gym is a haven from home and work stress.
Yoga has also become a popular choice for New Zealanders to try in the comfort of their own home. This benefits yoga programs and teachers who have adapted to change through technology. Other gyms host online classes or post exercise videos for their members.
“Unfortunately, our already fast-paced and stress-inducing society is more concerned and stressed out due to the coronavirus pandemic, and social distancing jobs are keeping the gyms closed. Stress and anxiety are main reasons why people ignore concern about their health. Fortunately, more and more people in New Zealand are choosing to exercise at home thanks to all the digital tools available to adapt to change, ”he concluded Russell Jack, Southland Yoga specialist.
