Trent Brown wrote:

The fitness landscape in Australia and New Zealand has changed considerably in recent years, most notably with the growth of small footprint and 24-hour clubs challenging the big players. This, coupled with reduced discretionary consumer spending caused by economic uncertainty, has resulted in a highly competitive environment.

 

The article also features current issues faced by clubs.

On average, and in order of importance, the most significant issues identified by clubs in Australia and New Zealand this year are:

  • Government legislation
  • Obtaining finance
  • Staff retention
  • Finding an effective software system
  • Better understanding of how to use social media
  • Motivating staff
  • Managing staff
  • Finding good staff
  • Competition from other operators
  • Marketing
  • Member retention
  • Membership sales

 

Trent Brown also discussed some of the key findings and trends highlighted by this year’s report such as smaller facilities, facilities and services, changing formats, personal training, member acquisition and retention, social media, and the future of fitness.
