As per the report, leading a healthy lifestyle and maximizing individual fitness levels are taking precedence over personal appearance and are the key motivators for exercising. Exercise is set to become a key antidote to counter diabetes, depression, heart conditions etc. Even governments globally are encouraging such an approach to tackle chronic diseases, encouraging people to maintain their fitness levels by exercising. Globally, there are approximately 201,000 clubs out of which 174 million have gyms/health club members worldwide. A rise of 20 million gyms/health club members since 2017 demonstrates strong growth. This is key factor expected to increase the overall fitness equipment market across the world. Health awareness is growing and people want to stay healthy and fit. As far as the United States market is concerned, in the early part of the 21st century, membership in health clubs was more popular among women rather than men, and thus more women used to exercise in the U.S than men.

The report states that the increase in number of people who are aware about fitness is expected to drive the growth of the gyms/health clubs segment during the forecast period. Advancements in health clubs in terms of deploying smart performance tracking machinery and huge discount packages attract more customer subscriptions, resulting in industry development. This provides opportunity to manufacturers to sell their products aggressively. Gyms/health clubs offer a wide variety of specialty exercise services, professional trainers, advance equipment, and other facilities. In addition, they also offer different programs which are especially designed to encourage people of all ages and fitness levels to participate in regular exercise. All this is expected to increase gym/health club membership across the world during the forecast period.

Brazil has almost 34,509 fitness clubs to serve nine million active members and this is expected to contribute to the growth of the fitness equipment market. The U.S. had approximately 36 thousand fitness centers in 2016 which increased to 38 thousand in 2017.  Memberships have grown approximately 18.6% between 2008 and 2014, and the trend continued in 2018. As a result, demand for fitness equipment in gyms/health clubs segment has increased over a period of time. Increase in number of health conscious individuals who are expected to use fitness equipment in the coming years is expected to drive the growth of the health and fitness club market across the world. Some of the major players covered under the scope include Amer Sports Corporation, TechnogymS.p.A, Brunswick Corporation, Torque Fitness LLC, ICON Health & Fitness, Inc., Body-Solid Inc., Impulse (Qingdao) Health Tech Ltd.
