By 2015, over 55 million people were members of one of the 36 thousand health clubs in the United States.

In terms of revenue, the biggest health club company in the world is Planet Fitness, with revenues of 1.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2015. In relation to the number of facilities worldwide, Anytime Fitness is the industry leader with over 3,000 gyms.
