We aim to spark ideas and shape agendas for fitness executives in this constantly evolving and fast moving sector. We set out each day to inform these leaders with proprietary content and analysis that will help them make more informed business decisions.
Why We Exist
We believe that fitness and wellness is not a trend. It is a cultural shift that is impacting the way we live. Fitness and wellness is penetrating every aspect of our lives. The result is a global fitness market prime for continued growth. People are choosing to spend discretionary funds on fitness over other common luxuries.
With the global wellness market estimated at over $1.5 trillion (2021) there is much to talk about. However, until now there has been no central repository of fitness related content focused on emerging fitness and wellness trends that are disrupting the industry. Athletech News aims to fill that void.

We’ll help improve your everyday performance with the latest news shaping this industry, whether it’s fitness trends, tech innovations or what’s happening in finance. If you’re in the fitness business, this is the news source for you.
