We endeavour to assist in your growth, learning and success so that your business reaches its full potential

We have Global best practice guides, specific New Zealand based Consumer Research, Industry Surveys and a range of Reports and Data at your disposal. We also run the nation’s two largest exercise education events, as well as hosting the Annual Exercise Industry Awards.

Industry Research

We survey New Zealand consumers on a range of topics, including what drives them to get into exercising, what their current barriers are, why members are thinking of leaving and perhaps most importantly – what can be done about it.

  • Perceptions to Exercise
  • Barriers to joining
  • Insights to increase your membership


Membership Retention is one of the highest priorities in your line of work. We offer hard data on retention rates in New Zealand exercise facilities broken down into different demographics (Age, Gender and Membership type). We have two completed reports from 2009 and 2016 with the next report due in 2022.

  • Membership Retention Report 2009
  • Membership Retention Report 2016

Data & Surveys

We survey the industry on a range of topics that help us understand trends and enable you to benchmark yourself against others. We share these results with you in anonymised summaries.

  • Pay Rates
  • Membership Fees
