(OAKLAND, CA, January 3, 2018) – The Association of Fitness Studios (AFS) announced today the release of the “Top 12 Fitness Studio Trends for 2018.” 

To ensure a variety of perspectives, AFS canvassed its Advisory Council, vendor partners, and leading studio operators on trends they see growing or continuing in 2018.  Their responses were compiled and are presented in a 3-page document, attached. 

“There are a few eyebrow-raising trends that people in the trenches are seeing,” said Josh Leve, AFS founder and CEO. “Of course, you never know exactly how things are going to develop, but those in the fitness business need to be aware of what industry leaders see over the horizon.”

There was no limitation to the trend input by AFS experts, meaning the trends covered a wide range of industry perspectives. We won’t spoil the suspense by announcing the #1 trend, but suffice it to say that the top five or six all garnered a great deal of attention from our expert panel.  Enjoy!
