EuropeActive and Deloitte published the fifth edition of the European Health & Fitness Market Report (EHFMR), summarising the latest market statistics for the calendar year 2017. This report, which represents the seventh joint publication with Deloitte, reflects EuropeActive’s effort to further strengthen its position as knowledge centre for the European health and fitness sector by assembling reliable and sound market data. Despite continued economic, political and social turbulences, the vast majority of European fitness markets again displayed significant growth. Driven by further club openings and ongoing innovation, fitness club operators not only attracted millions of new members but also continued to draw interest from financial and strategic investors. This is underlined by a record 20 M&A transaction presented in this report, including the listing of Swedish fitness club operator Actic on Nasdaq Stockholm’s Small Cap list on 7 April 2017. The Actic floatation was the fourth European fitness IPO in three years following The Gym Group (London in 2015), Basic-Fit (Amsterdam in 2016) and equipment manufacturer Technogym (Milan in 2016). The main findings can be summarised as follows:

  • the number of members in European health and fitness clubs increased by 3.9% to 59.7 million;
  • 7.5% of the 794 million people living in the European Union, Norway, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine, were members of a health or fitness club, with a penetration rate of 9.0% for people aged 15 years and older;
  • total revenues amounted to EUR 26.5 billion in 2017, an increase of 3.7% at constant currency;
  • the number of clubs grew by 3.3% to 59,061;
  • the top 30 operators increased their accumulated membership by 9.8% to 14.1 million, which accounts for 23.6% of the total European membership (+1.1 percentage points);
  • five low-cost operators (McFIT Group, Basic-Fit, Pure Gym, Fitness World and clever fit) rank among the top 10 companies in terms of revenue and seven – including The Gym Group and FitX – among the top 10 in membership;
  • driven by the acquisition of 14 clubs from Virgin Active, David Lloyd Leisure took over as the leading European fitness club operator in terms of revenues with EUR 483 million;
  • the leading equipment manufacturers selected for this report saw their revenues grow by 2.9% to EUR 3.0 billion, including approximately EUR 0.7 billion in the European commercial equipment market;
  • there were 20 M&A transactions on the operator side and further deals in the equipment industry, an indication that investors regard fitness as an attractive sector to invest in.
