The health club market in China is among the largest in world. On mainland China, the combined revenue from the top 10 cities ranks fourth among all global markets at $3.9 billion in annual revenue (USD), while the number of club members ranks ninth in the world at 4.5 million. Opportunities remain for the health club industry in China as the market has one of the lowest penetration rates among developed countries. Only 2.98% of the country belongs to a health club.

“Along with Hong Kong, China’s top 10 cities are among the fastest growing and most mature fitness markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The IHRSA Greater China Health Club Report is an essential resource to better understand the size and scope of the fitness industry as well as opportunities for growth.”
