“There is no question that surpassing five billion health club visits is impressive,” said Joe Moore, IHRSA president and CEO. “It’s proof-positive that every day the health club industry plays an integral role in helping millions of people achieve their health and wellness goals.”

In the Industry Research section there are charts breaking down the number of clubs in countries, regions and the United States. There is also some extremely valuable research information (for the Americas) culled the IHRSA Trend Report.

“Although there are many options besides joining a fitness club, it remains the one place where you can meet with others who share your passion for health and fitness and where social opportunities become available,” said Clive Caldwell, president and CEO of Cambridge Group of Clubs, and one of the several leading club operators interviewed in the report.

The 116-page 2014 IHRSA Global Report is available in print or PDF.
