EuropeActive, the leading voice and non-profit association for the European fitness and physical activity sector, is pleased to announce that results from total sample data collected by SafeACTiVE survey platform and ukactive Research Institute have revealed low levels of Covid-19 risk in fitness clubs and leisure facilities. With more than 115 million visits analysed, the average infection rate sits at 1.12 per 100.000 visits.
In times of a global pandemic the importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle which boosts your resilience, your immune system and your mental health becomes very apparent. There’s a growing body of evidence and data showing that Covid-19 is exacerbating health inequalities and that people with non-communicable diseases such as obesity are disproportionally affected.
EuropeActive is delighted to announce the launch of a new research centre called ‘THINK Active’. A unique initiative to provide scientific, evidence-based research to support the fitness & physical activity sector to deliver meaningful and sustainable public health outcomes and promote best practice across Europe and beyond.
