Health club industry mid-market report-Ray Algar Oxygen Consulting

Report feedback

‘Great work Ray, an excellent, comprehensive report on the mid-market sector of the fitness industry.’

Chuck Runyon, CEO, Anytime Fitness

‘Outstanding; great work.’

John McCarthy, former CEO, IHRSA

‘Excellent report and very accurate representation of the sector.’

 John Treharne, CEO, The Gym Group

‘Congratulations Ray, a great piece of work – mandatory reading for anyone with an interest in the fitness industry.’

Steven Ward, CEO, ukactive

‘This is outstanding and a very comprehensive report. Well done to you and your team and thanks for asking me to be part of this.’

Kevin Yates, Director, 1Rebel

‘Thank you for creating such a great tool for our industry. I am amazed how you figured out a way to systemise such a new and vague concept and turn into an almost exact science. It will help all of us evaluate our level, find out what we can improve, and raise our standards.’

Pedro Ruiz, CEO, Vivafit

‘A great report that hopefully will stimulate operators to step up the level of involvement/engagement of the sector in social media and the power of the internet…a significant marketing tool that seems to be under-utilised, based on the report’s findings.’

Herman Rutgers, Executive Director, EuropeActive

Sponsor opportunities

Opportunities exist for a small number of organisations to be associated with each report. Sponsors receive association with highly valued research that features in a range of international publications and conference presentations as well as spreading across the web. Get in touch for further information.
