What is Omnichannel Fitness?
Omnichannel fitness refers to a seamless integration of fitness experiences across different channels, including in-person workouts, live streaming, on-demand workouts, and digital coaching. It is a holistic approach to fitness that recognizes the different ways people prefer to engage in their workouts and seeks to provide a consistent and personalized experience across all channels.
Omnichannel fitness is becoming increasingly popular as people seek more flexibility in their fitness routines and want to be able to exercise wherever, whenever, and however they choose.
The partnership between Adidas and Les Mills aims to leverage this trend and provide fitness enthusiasts with an unparalleled omnichannel fitness experience.
