BOSTON, MA—July 24, 2023—IHRSA, the Global Health & Fitness Association, is calling upon leaders at health clubs, gyms, and studios worldwide to participate in its 2023 Global Report Survey with the chance to be featured in the most requested research publication, The IHRSA Global Report.

Completion of the survey takes just 10-15 minutes. The deadline to participate in the survey is Thursday, August 3.

"The more responses from around the world we receive to the survey, the better we will be able to analyze the health of the industry by regions and offer a benchmark to health clubs, gyms and studios worldwide,” said Jeff Solsby, IHRSA’s senior vice president of communications.

This year’s survey gathers basic company contact information as well as numbers on membership, club count, and employees. The most important data collected is that of revenue for 2021 and 2022.

For additional value, this year’s survey asks respondents to provide projections on performance and growth for 2023.

“This data will be analyzed and shared in aggregate in an article within the report that will offer insight into how the industry is recovering from the pandemic’s impact and become a valuable resource not just for health club and studio operators but also for investors, legislators, and other stakeholders in the industry,” Jeff added.

The 2023 IHRSA Global Report will highlight the survey findings, which non-respondents can purchase in September.

Fitness facility operators who complete the survey will receive a free PDF of The 2023 IHRSA Global Report before its release. All participants will be considered for recognition among global industry leaders in the Company Profiles section of the report.

The 2023 Global Report will include sections focused on:

  1. Industry Overview highlights significant global health and fitness industry news impacting the industry in 2022 and 2023 with insights from industry experts and leading club operators.

  2. Industry Research digs into the data collected through IHRSA’s leadership survey to show the industry’s size, scope, and health by region. This section reflects upon industry pain points and shares company outlooks from a variety of leaders.

  3. Industry Insights offers more in-depth regional insights from leaders at industry federations, consulting companies, research firms, and point-of-service providers.

  4. Company Profiles accentuates leading health club companies, sharing company data such as the number of facilities and members, annual revenue, markets served, and CEO information.
