Are people still going to health clubs Do you think people are canceling their gym memberships because of the economy?

2 day ago The International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) announced the results of IHRSA’s Monthly Trends Survey. What they found surprised a lot of non-health club owners.

IHRSA’s survey of health clubs showed that although many “forecasters” who believed that people would cancel their gym memberships during these more difficult economic times were just flat out wrong.

From September 2008 to September 2009 health club memberships stayed steady and even grew during the past year. Also, almost 90% of clubs were planning on hiring additional staff over the next quarter to keep up with demand.

Do these findings surprise you or do you think people need the stress-releasing and healthy aspects of working out more than ever?
