Great time to pick up IHRSA European Health Club Report

The IHRSA European Health Club Report, a comprehensive examination of market conditions in Europe, was published in October 2013 and is sponsored by FIBO, Les Mills, miha bodytec and OJMAR.

The report examines market size, health club membership data, dues, penetration and obesity rates in key health club markets as well as the key economic indicators for Eurozone countries. In addition, the report profiles 100 leading club operators in Europe, including Fitness First, Virgin Active, Health City, Fitness World, SATS, and Elixia. The report notes that several club leaders have attracted private equity investment during a time in which banks were reluctant to lend to corporations and businesses.

This publication is divided into four main sections:

  • European Fitness Industry Overview: examines the economy, impact of VAT rates, leading and struggling markets, and drivers for growth with interviews from industry experts in local markets; 
  • Market Reports: an in-depth analysis of 18 key health club markets in Europe;
  • Emerging Markets: a section on 13 markets poised for growth, including select Baltic and Balkan countries; and
  • Company Profiles: a snapshot of 100 leading club companies in Europe.
