Fitness Buffs Want DVDs

Despite the shift towards streaming of movies, it seems exercise fans still want their DVDs. Despite declining DVD sales, exercise DVDS accounted for nearly $300 million dollars in sales in 2014.  In fact, fitness DVD production is actually increasing, growing around 8 percent in 2014 and researches think it will still grow around 4 percent over the next five years.

The driving force behind these sales are aging baby boomers who want to keep in shape. While younger consumers may be content to take their fitness advice from an app, older consumers prefer good (old-fashioned?) DVDs.
