After years of being stopped, of sport “whispered” often at home, of fears and restrictions, you want to get back to moving, socializing. The gyms start again, they start in new businesses. In the sign of positivity, sporting activity returns to be the protagonist. After the heavy years of Covid, which is still scary, sport takes back the scene. Now what is worrying is the expensive bills and the energy crisis, “From Covid there has been an evident recovery – he explains Giampaolo Duregon president of Anif Eurowellness, the Italian national association for sport and fitness. The multipurpose sports centers, those that have inside them, in addition to swimming pool, gym, fitness rooms, tennis or padel courts, have resumed the numbers of 2019, indeed also above both from a frequency and financial point of view. Single gyms, the only fitness centers, are slightly below 2019 by one 10-15%. A good result considering that for the whole of 2021 the numbers were lower than 30-40%. The swimming pools alone have resumed the numbers of 2019, but are more “fearful” precisely because of the doubled energy costs: some did not reopen in September for fear of these excessive increases. The numbers are limited: there are a few hundred swimming pools out of millions. But the recovery is evident: people are back to exercise, train, swim, move. As for the new openings, the big realities pave the way for the positive trend, the small realities will follow, but this will is also a positive sign. And it is expected that in 2023 even the minor ones, Italian, will return to grow in openings “.
