Romanian health & fitness market is the fastest growing market in Europe. The recovery is strong and it is expected to be complete by year end and even better than in 2019. The confidence for growth in 2023 is verified by surveys among leading operators in the market.

Almost 500 million people will develop heart disease, obesity, diabetes or other noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) attributable to physical inactivity, between 2020 and 2030, costing US$ 27 billion annually, unless governments don’t take urgent action to encourage more physical activity among their populations.

The Global status report on physical activity 2022, published by the World Health Organization, measures the extent to which governments are implementing recommendations to increase physical activity across all ages and abilities.

“We need to scale up implementation of policies to support people to be more active through walking, cycling, sport, and other physical activity. The benefits are huge, not only for the physical and mental health of individuals, but also for societies, environments, and economies.” (Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General).

For the first time in Romania, the representatives of the health & fitness industry will gather together at the first edition of the Health & Fitness Business Summit, organized by RomaniaActive on 23rd of November in Bucharest, at The Chateau, 10AM.

It will be a day full of debates on the hottest topics that can help the health & fitness sector become more successful and powerful.
