As the pandemic stretches into the 6-month plus mark, the fitness technology world continues to evolve accordingly. First up this week we have the German Fitness company RSG Group acquiring Gold’s Gym and its 661 worldwide locations. Next, we take a look at a recent study out of Rutgers University that examines in-school food offerings and availability of physical activities and their impact on student health and fitness. Finally, rumors are circulating that Under Armour is potentially looking to sell its popular MyFitnessPal digital app. We take a look at the popular app and the cloud-based food and exercise database and why UA might be looking to sell what was previously heralded as their bridge to the digital customer.
