Pandemic and corporate life wreaked havoc on our bodies
Although strength training is essential for health and well-being, more than 75% of people in EU & US don´t train their muscle regularly. They lack time, guidance and motivation.
At the same time, companies increased their awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The market for employee health management is booming but in-house solutions require a dedicated room with at least 50m².
The social importance of strength training is constantly increasing and was recently explicitly called for by the World Health Organization. After 2 years of pandemics, companies also increased their awareness for employee´s health.
The global corporate health market of 51bn€ is expected to grow with a CAGR of 7% until 2027. In Germany, companies are even getting 600€ tax free/year/employee to promote health. But today, many companies lack sufficient space and budget to open a gym in their facility and can only offer subsidized access to external fitness clubs. Sparkfield Core offers a scalable solution for a premium muscle training on-site on only 2m².
