NEW YORK (Reuters)—Americans will continue to flock to indoor cycling, interval training, group fitness classes and other calorie-burning activities in 2015, but now hi-tech devices will monitor their every waking – and sleeping – hours, fitness experts say.
Consumers bought an estimated 84 million tracking devices in 2013, figures from analyst group HIS Inc showed. The gadgets are giving fitness experts new insights into the most popular trends in the industry.
MyFitnessPal, a digital fitness app and online website, said data from its 47 million users in the United States shows back-to-basic fitness routines such as cycling grew in popularity last year, a trend likely to continue in 2015.
