Insights from the 2016 IHRSA Health Club Consumer Report

IHRSA, with analysis and insights provided by ClubIntel, recently published the 2016 Health Club Consumer Report (can be acquired at ihrsa.org/research-reports). The 2016 Health Club Consumer Report, like its predecessors, delves into the attitudes and behaviors of health/fitness facility consumers, seeking to understand the impact these practices might have on how club and studio operators shape their business in the future. In 1919, Marcel Proust, in his book “A l’ombre des jeunes filles en fleurs” was quoted as saying, “What we call our future is the shadow that our past projects in front of us”. Well, in the case of the health club industry, the consumer behaviors brought forth in this year’s report portray a vivid story of the recent past and present, providing an excellent GPS for operators to follow in 2017 and beyond.
