Market value of fitness clubs and studios in China 2015-2020

In 2018, the fitness club market in China reached 50.32 billion yuan, increasing from 28.6 billion yuan in 2015. The fast-expanding fitness industry in China was estimated to maintain its growth and exceed 73.8 billion yuan in 2020.

A market with great potential

Owing to an increasing disposable income in recent years, more and more people in China have started to embrace a healthier lifestyle by participating in working out. In 2019, the average fitness club in China had almost 200 active members. The number of fitness clubs is also increasing dramatically, reaching close to 100,000 fitness clubs across China and showing no sign of slowing down. Despite this apparent boom in gyms, the population share participating in fitness is still lower than one percent, much lower than the world’s average fitness participation rate.

Fitness in the cloud

The popularization of smart fitness and online fitness has created exciting new opportunities for people to work out both in and out of the gym. Online fitness training apps offer various services, from on-demand sessions to live-streamed exercise. China’s fitness app user base was growing steadily and was tipped to exceed 200 million in 2020.
