At the high end, spas and resorts are fl ourishing. At the budget end, operations are expanding. Clubs in the middle are at the greatest risk.

largest economies. “Anytime Fitness and Snap Fitness have each expanded their franchise network to India,” she said. “And as the second-largest global economic power, the Chinese market is also ripe for development.”


THE AMERICAS

LATIN AMERICA In Latin America, the industry is robust with opportunities for growth. According to The IHRSA Latin American Report, health clubs generate an estimated US$5.5bn in revenue from more than 46,000 health clubs in fi fteen Latin American markets. Brazil leads all Latin American markets in revenue (US$2.4bn), club count (23,398), and members (7m). Mexico and Argentina represent the second and third largest markets in the region. Mexico generates an estimated US$1.5bn in revenue from more than 7,800 health clubs serving 2.7m members. Nearly 6per cent of Ar- gentinians belong to a health club as the market attracts 2.3m members. Low membership penetration rates and increasing health awareness present opportunities for industry growth in Latin America. On average, 1.7per cent of Latin Americans belong to a health club. According to Gallup, only 53per cent of Latin Americans exercise at least once


a week. Club operators in Latin America are uniquely positioned to address inactivity, rising obesity rates, stress, and other lifestyle indicators.


The IHRSA Index – which demonstrates


the fi nancial performance of the commercial health club industry in the United States – has shown improved year-over-year performance for three consecutive years. Improvements were recorded from 2011 to 2012 in all nine performance indicators measured, most notably non-dues revenue and EBITDAR. Overall, revenue grew by 8.1per cent from 2011 to 2012 as total membership dues revenue rose by 6.7per cent. Same-store units also reported improvements of 2.9per cent and 2.5per cent, respectively, in total sales and non-dues revenue. According to the most recent edition of IHRSA’s Profi les of Success, which was published in December 2012 and analyses club fi nancial and operational benchmarks for 2011, participating clubs saw their net membership increase by 3.1per cent and their revenues increase by 3.6per cent during that year.


OPPORTUNITIES ABOUND While such modest growth might not nor- mally be considered a great success, com- ing as it does on the heels of fi ve years of unpredictable – often stormy – economic conditions, it’s viewed by industry leaders as confi rmation of the industry’s resilience and potential.
