A breathing training mask born from the science of breathing
In modern society, there are growing concerns about health such as obesity and the aging population, so interest is rising in maintaining health and dieting. In addition, it is becoming popular to take more active approaches to health and pursuit of beauty, such as maintaining one’s figure and proportions. With this background, the number of people using sports clubs and gyms, which was said to be low compared to Europe and the United States, has been on the rise in recent years. And looking at the recent increase in the number of facilities, further growth of the fitness market is expected. In these circumstances, competition among fitness facilities is expected to intensify as the market grows in the future. Fitness facilities will be required to differentiate themselves from others, provide more efficient and unique exercise equipment, and improve their software.
