  • Gyms & Health Clubs: Budget gyms rising from below, specialist gyms expanding from the top

    Summary Technologies have breathed new life in to the gym business redefining it in the process. What was a simple business model that had stayed the same since the mainstream gym became popular in the 1990s is changing dramatically. Now the business environment is different, consumers have access to all the training, data and advice that they could ever need, which reduces their reliance on the gym itself and they either want super cheap prices, luxury facilities or unusual fitness concepts. Long term contracts, big out of town box gyms and mid-range prices have dropped out of fashion and there are burgeoning aggressive new companies with brand new business models that are out-competing the old format businesses and in some cases acquiring them. Apps and online platforms have been key to facilitating this change, and membership offices and their staff are increasingly becoming obsolete and a waste of gym space, as customers can join, pay, book classes, cancel contracts, add facilities, speak to staff, track their activities and get advice all via the internet. Key Findings Examining the rise of the budget gym. Looking at the squeezing of the mid-tier gym market. Analysing the rise of the new breed of luxury concept gym. Seeing how new technology is changing the nature of the industry. Reasons?To?Buy Who are the big market players in the US and UK budget Gym market? Which incumbents are suffering because of the change in the market? Who are the emerging players in the new luxury and concept gym market? Key Highlights The gym industry is in good shape as it is expected to produce good reliable growth at least through to 2020. Even developed markets are still producing growth and this means globally the picture is very favorable. However there are some distinct changes occurring and some of the largest gym operators of the last twenty years are starting to fall by the wayside as new aggressive competitors enter the market. The whole health and fitness industry is adapting to the changes that technology has brought. New apps, online resources, fitness communities, online data and free expert advice has changed the nature of the gym customer to being less reliant on certain services that gyms provide, which is slowly changing the gym business model. The rise of the budget gym has been rapid and comprehensive. Companies such as Pure Gym and Planet Fitness identified that many consumers want access to a gym and are willing to pay for it, but the majority are unwilling to go above a certain price point no matter what facilities are provided. Budget gyms are now squeezing the mid-tier gyms and even buying them up in some cases.

  • Valentine's Day 2016

    Summary While this year saw more consumers do something to mark Valentine's, the percentage of those that spent less than last year was still higher than those that spent more. Furthermore, while just under half of all consumers purchased a card/wrap or gift item, views on Valentine's remain broadly negative - with consumers feeling it is a waste of money and too commercial. Enthusiasm for Valentine's was markedly higher among younger, 18-34 year old consumers this year, and this is a trend that retailers must take advantage of. For example, in gifts, while purchase penetration overall was 46.4%, the same figures were above 60% for 18-34s. Key Findings -?Pleasingly for the UK's biggest grocer, Tesco made strong gains this year to make it the leading Valentine's retailer in both gifting and food and grocery. In gifting, Tesco was the most used retailer overall, increasing its usage by 7.0ppts on last year to 17.1%, while in food and grocery, it was the leading retailer both for overall usage and as the most used retailer. -?While just under half of consumers (47.2%) chose to do nothing to celebrate Valentine's this year, this was a 6.8ppts decline on last year, and an 8.1ppts drop on 2014. However, this did not necessarily translate to an uplift in spending and 22.8% of consumers stated they spent less this year on Valentine's compared to the 21.1% that said they spent more. -?Valentine's continues to be a major battleground for the grocers, enhanced by the event falling on a Sunday this year. Marketing was prominent both online and instore, with meal deals a key battleground, even for players like Iceland, while Co-op focused on breakfast in bed products. Tesco has emerged as the grocery winner for Valentine's Day this year, with last year's winner, Asda, faltering. -?Valentine's gift purchases are typically made with a view to impressing the recipient and, for this reason, quality resonates as the most important driver of store choice (39.9%). In addition, a more confident consumer is now clearly less concerned about the cost of gift purchasing, with the importance of low prices declining by some 4.7ppts for Valentine's this year. Synopsis The Valentine's report offers a comprehensive insight into the retail occasions spend in the UK, analysing the market, the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It provides in-depth analysis of the following: -?Key Findings -?Consumer Attitudes -?Food and Drink -?Gifts -?Card and Gift-wrap Reasons?To?Buy -?Utilise the detailed data and insight on the market to help form an effective growth strategy for upcoming occasions -?Understand who are the target demographic and their key issues and demands -?Identify the opportunities to grow business during these occasions. -?Understand the journey of consumers throughout the process of purchases.
