What you need to know
The private health and fitness market is in steady growth with 15% of Brits now having a membership. Low-cost operators continue to expand at pace while a rise in use of the franchise model is also fuelling an increase in site numbers.
Technology is improving retention and acquisition. It is allowing operators to understand customers better and also offer more immersive ways of exercising. However, it is also making at-home workouts more available as online and on-demand exercise channels evolve.
Operators need to embrace technology but remember that this is no substitute for personal interaction. Personal trainers and gym staff are a brand’s strongest asset. Affordability of personal training can be addressed while using online channels to build rapport with customers can help overcome barriers to interaction.
- Membership/ joining fees
- Other revenue (eg beauty, sunbeds, bar, food, shop, etc.)
