BOSTON, MA—January 22, 2020—To maintain the most up-to-date research on the global health club industry, the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub (IHRSA) recently launched the 2020 Global Report Survey. Industry leaders who participate in the survey will have a chance to be recognized among global leaders in the “Company Profiles” section of The IHRSA Global Report, IHRSA’s most requested research publication. The survey gathers basic company contact information as well as revenue, membership, and club count figures. Health club operators can participate at the IHRSA Research Portal. The survey takes only 10-15 minutes to complete.

“The IHRSA Global Report is a valuable reference for any industry stakeholder,” said Jay Ablondi, IHRSA’s executive vice president of global products. “A bestselling industry resource, the IHRSA Global Report showcases top performing clubs, analyzes performance in key markets, and provides valuable insights from industry leaders. The report is a must-have resource for club managers, developers, suppliers, investors, analysts, and the media."

IHRSA member clubs who participate in the survey will receive a free PDF of The 2020 IHRSA Global Report before its release in June. Survey responses from clubs who complete the full survey will also be considered for Club Business International magazine’s "IHRSA Global 25," a compilation of leading clubs ranked by revenue, membership, and club units.

The deadline for participating is Friday, January 31.

In addition to the “Company Profiles” section, the report consists of the following:

  • Industry Overview: A comprehensive feature on health club market news and developments of the previous year, along with analysis and insights from industry experts and leading club operators.
  • Industry Research: Data on revenue, number of facilities and number of club members for nearly 70 markets. For the U.S. market, there is a breakdown of data for the number of health clubs by state and infographic insights for consumer growth and member visits.
  • Supplier Profiles: A valuable compilation of industry suppliers, which provides clubs with useful information about industry-leading products and services.
