Money talks The one number that trumps everything is revenue (see Figure 3), and in 2014 not one of the Global 25 had flat or reduced earnings. In fact, 15 of the top 25 experienced revenue growth of 10 per cent or more. Topping the percentage growth charts


were: Pump Spirit, whose revenue grew from US$4m to US$7m (+75 per cent); Orangetheory, which grew from US$7m to US$11m (+57 per cent); and Go Fit Portugal, whose revenues increased from US$36m to US$53m (+47 per cent). Larger, more established players also saw double-digit growth. BioRitmo/SmartFit’s revenues jumped from US$150m to US$210m (+40 per cent); Planet Fitness’ numbers rose from US$211m to US$280m (+33 per cent); and Anytime Fitness went from US$799m to US$967m (+21 per cent). 2014 was a good year indeed! ●
