The sport industry in Australia involves a diverse selection of the population and is responsible for the employment of thousands of people in the country.

Gym junkies

To accommodate these gym-goers, Australia had around 3,468 gym and fitness facilities in fiscal year 2019, a slight increase from previous years. Fitness clubs are used by people of all ages; although participation rates are higher for adults under 35 years old, around a fifth of the older population also visit gyms.

Future trends

According to fitness industry insiders, the most significant area of growth for fitness centers was 24-hour clubs, that is, clubs that are open at all hours of the day. These appeal to people with busy schedules and want the flexibility of gym access when it is convenient for them. The growing seniors’ market is also an area where clubs see future growth, with special rates and classes for those over 65 years old becoming more common.
