New Report Analyzes UK Fitness Industry

Ray Algar, a UK fitness analyst and industry veteran, has published a new report that looks at the state of the industry in that country.

The second annual "Review of the UK Health and Fitness Industry and Outlook for 2015" has the following predictions, among others.

  • middle sector clubs, where most of the major brands lie like Virgin Active and David Lloyd, will reinvent themselves
  • low-cost offerings will grab even a bigger share, from 23% to 30%
  • consumers will have more options

Algar is managing director of Oxygen Consulting, a Brighton, UK, company that provides strategic business insight for organizations connected to the global health and fitness industry.

For more on the report, visit the Oxygen Consulting blog. The report can be purchased at the Oxygen Consulting Knowledge Store.

Check out Algar in the February CBI magazine (click on the cover image).

Thank you for discussing my new UK fitness industry report. There was a considerable rise in UK corporate activity during 2014 indicating the impact of the global economic crisis is passing.
