The market value of the UK's fitness sector has been estimated at £3.92bn - an increase of 1.5 per cent from the year before.

According to the 2013 State of the Fitness Industry Report from The Leisure Database Company (TLDC), the industry has experienced improved growth in the last twelve months with increases of 2 per cent in the number of fitness facilities and a 4.5 per cent rise in the number of members.
