The global health club industry generated $94 billion in 2018 revenue, according to the newly released 2019 IHRSA Global Report.
The United States totaled a record $32.3 billion in revenue, while Germany totaled $6.3 billion and the United Kingdom totaled $6.2 billion. In terms of club memberships, these top markets reported 62.5 million, 11.1 million and 9.9 million, respectively, contributing to a worldwide sum of 183 million memberships.
“Across the globe, the industry continues to help consumers lead healthier lives as steady growth was recorded in key markets,” Jay Ablondi, IHRSA’s executive vice president of global products, said in a media release. “The industry is on pace with IHRSA’s global initiative, announced last year, to reach 230 million health club members worldwide by 2030.”
Comparatively, the United States only generated $25.8 billion in health club industry revenue in 2015. This represents an increase of 25 percent over the last three years.
