Number of fitness centers and gyms in Australia from 2004/05 to 2018/19

Number of gym & fitness centers in Australia 2004-2019 The fitness industry in Australia has gone from strength to strength, with recent 2019 figures estimating approximately 3,468 fitness centers and gyms located across the country. According to fitness clubs, the most significant area for growth in this industry was the availability of 24-hour clubs, due to the attraction of convenience and low fees.
How strong is the industry?

Australians are becoming more health conscious, and this is reflected in the fitness and gym industry showing steady growth over the past 5 years. More and more Australians are opting for gym memberships as they appreciate the benefits of physical activity. Australians of all ages use gyms, fitness clubs, sports or leisure centers, with the largest number belonging to the 25 to 35 years age bracket.

Fight of the fittest

Fitness First was Australia’s leading fitness center business in terms of market share in 2014, and currently has almost 70 clubs in the country. However, competition between fitness clubs is fierce in Australia, with over 20 percent of clubs stating this was an issue they were concerned with. The growth in the number of new memberships is not proportional to the number of new centers opening, so clubs will need to find innovative, future-proof ways to attract new customers.
