On Monday 16th we released our 2016 State of the UK Fitness Industry Report and we’re thrilled to say it’s been another year of success…the fitness industry is thriving! Thank you to everyone who’s mentioned or quoted us!

Last Thursday, David visited the Retention Convention in Birmingham and the line-up of speakers was pretty special. Dr Paul Bedford, or Guru Paul as he’s also known, discussed ‘Big Data, AI and its impact on Retention’. With the number of UK Fitness members exceeding 9 million for the first time ever, it’s vital we identify the best strategies for retention.

Tomorrow and Thursday takes Natalie to the Midlands for this year’s SIBEC UK event, another great opportunity to network within the fitness industry. Be sure to say hello!

Back at HQ, Charlotte and Abi are both working hard on LeisureDB’s next publications. Coming soon will be the 2016 State of the UK Swimming Industry Report and we can’t wait to let you know if the industry has changed. We’re also very excited to announce our brand new Social Media Fitness Index (Q1 2016). For the first time ever, we’ve ranked the top 20 private operators according to their best use of social media. Who will be number 1?
