The fitness industry in Europe encompasses everything from physical activity and sports participation, to health clubs and online fitness apps. It is a multi-million dollar industry, which has been severely impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With the forced closure of fitness establishments across Europe, fitness fans were forced to find other ways to keep fit. In the United Kingdom, for example, consumers searched for fitness keywords such as "resistance bands" and "exercise bike" in an attempt to set up a gym in their own homes. Online exercise companies such as Peloton also profited from this enforced situation, reporting record revenues in 2020.
Before the crisis, the fitness industry in Europe looked in good shape. The revenues of the health club industry of European countries showed that Germany and the United Kingdom generated the most revenue by far, with roughly 5.6 and 5.5 billion U.S. dollars' worth in 2019, more than twice as much as the next countries on the list, France, Italy and Spain. The eHealth fitness segment showed a very similar trend with the United Kingdom having revenues at around 538 million U.S. dollars, Germany at 509 million, followed by France at 353 million U.S. dollars.
