Wellness Solutions, the biggest distributor of fitness equipment for home and commercial use in Romania, announces a 30% increase in turnover for 2020, having sales exceeding 5.5 million euros. Sales growth has been sustained by the rapid lifestyle changes in clients’ behavior during the Covid19 pandemic.


The pandemic increased people’s interest in practicing sports at home, more and more Romanians being aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and deciding to invest in fitness equipment for home use.

Sales of high standard wellness products and solutions to clients for their home use has increased significantly as a result of the health crisis. Being locked down, many persons that were going at the gym were forced to shift their lifestyle and to take into consideration the advantages of having access to sports in their own environment. Therefore, the demand of fitness equipment for home such as bikes, cross trainers, treadmills was more than doubled compared to the same period in 2019. On the other hand, the supply of equipment for the commercial use is still affected by the pandemic, but I believe that due to our continuous need to socialize, people have already started to get back partially to their routine to go at the gym. So hopefully, this segment will recover as well. I expect more and more people to choose a “hybrid” model between going to the gym and working out at home on their own fitness equipment. Also, I believe that people try to avoid crowded gyms so more and more “boutique” gyms will emerge.”, says Tania Papagiannopoulou, CEO of Wellness Solutions.

The company expects that the combination of the high demand of home fitness equipment and the renaissance of the gyms will grant this year an increase of aprox. 20%. With a 10 years history in Romania, the company’s attention in 2021 is focused equally on the solutions for both private use and the corporate segment, providing the same high-quality, premium experience to their clients, with extra focus on the after sales care and service.
