Statistics and facts on Health & Fitness Clubs

Health and fitness clubs provide their customers with the infrastructure for their workouts and physical activity in exchange for a membership fee. The global fitness and health club industry generates more than 80 billion U.S. dollars in revenue per year. The North American market had an estimated size of more than 28 billion U.S. dollars in 2015, of which 90 percent, around 25.8 billion U.S. dollars, was attributable to the United States. The U.S. is the single biggest market worldwide not only in terms of revenue but in regards to the number of members in health & fitness clubs as well.


The global market is fragmented with no particular chain taking a large share of the worldwide market. Market leaders are rather limited to more local (countries, geographical region) ranks. Amongst the health & fitness club companies with revenues in excess of one billion U.S. dollars in 2015 are Planet Fitness, Anytime Fitness and ClubCorp. In 2015, a total of more than 186 thousand fitness & health clubs were in operation worldwide, of which about 36 thousand are located in the United States. These clubs in the U.S. had about 55 million members. Globally more than 150 million people were members of a health/fitness club.

About 25 percent of people in the United States, who work out at least once a month, say that exercise, workout or sports in general is part of their daily routine according to a Statista survey. Almost two thirds of people who regularly exercise are, or have been at some point, a member health club or gym. The main reasons for exercising are - to stay healthy, weight reduction, optimizing strength and/or endurance and to get a better looking body and improving overall appearance.
