CURRENT TRENDS IN OUTDOOR SPORTS
EHolger Schwarting, CEO of SPORT 2000, knows that the effects of lockdowns on the supply chain may cause long waiting times when ordering a new bicycle. Nevertheless, he sees an increase in the sport and other outdoor activities. This trend was taking shape prior to corona and really took off during the pandemic. In addition, he says, there is also an increase in outdoor sports of all kinds, as people want to exercise more and do more for their overall fitness.
And they want it immediately, even if that means going outdoors and working out by themselves. They no longer need a partner or feel compelled to go to a gym. Another interesting development according to Schwarting: fitness streaming offers are on the rise and skyrocketing in popularity. ■
