Whether they are born in the late 1960s or early 1980s, the Gen­er­a­tion X and the Mil­len­ni­als agree on at least one point: Health comes be­fore ap­pear­ance. As for the favoured equip­ment, even if older adults have a clear pref­er­ence for in­door cy­cling, the num­ber one sports equip­ment, re­gard­less of gen­der or gen­er­a­tion, re­mains the "smart" tread­mill. One of the sur­vey's most sig­nif­i­cant rev­e­la­tions is that Mil­len­ni­als do not ex­er­cise alone, fo­cused and in si­lence, but rather, they ad­dress sports as a way of en­gag­ing in fun and open ac­tiv­i­ties with each other. In­stead of work­ing out alone, they seek out group ses­sions and en­joy shar­ing their per­for­mances with their fol­low­ers on so­cial net­works. Ac­cord­ing to the study, 77% like to sweat while lis­ten­ing to mu­sic, 39% while watch­ing videos, and the same per­cent­age share their per­for­mances on the so­cial net­works.

In clos­ing, the study delves into the pos­si­ble evo­lu­tion of sports prac­tice in the years to come. 40% of the young re­spon­dents “plan to use wear­able tech for fit­ness pur­poses,” which is as­sessed to in­crease the use of mo­bile sports and wellness ap­pli­ca­tions by 20% in the next two years. Fur­ther­more, 72% “would like to be able to track fit­ness data when­ever, wher­ever.” Fi­nally, in the wake of con­nected fit­ness, comes in­ter­ac­tive vir­tual fit­ness: cer­tainly an as­sump­tion to be made from the 22% Mil­len­nial ath­letes who “would like to com­pete with others vir­tu­ally.”
