Gym, Health & Fitness Clubs in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Gym, Health & Fitness Clubs in Canada

The Gym, Health and Fitness Clubs industry in Canada has strengthened over the five years to 2019 as a result of consumer trends and the proliferation of public health campaigns. With the adult obesity rate expected to rise over the five years to 2019, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has increasingly stressed the merits of fitness regimens and healthy lifestyle choices. Many health insurance companies and businesses seeking to bolster workforce productivity and lower healthcare costs have provided incentives for health club memberships as a means of preventative care, buoying industry revenue growth. Industry operators have primarily focused on two opportunities for growth, which are service diversification or specialization. For example, small-scale gyms with few amenities that focus on a core fitness regimen have fared well during the period. Other operators have diversified to broaden their potential client base. Over the five years to 2024, the industry is expected to benefit from similar trends as the current period.

This industry operates fitness and recreational sports facilities that feature exercise and other active physical fitness conditioning or recreational sports activities, such as swimming, skating or racquet sports. Operators are also involved in facilities management and fitness instruction.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
