case study: Gympass unlocks new customer base for Everyone Active
Everyone Active - the UK’s leading operator of local leisure, gym, swim and activity facilities - is one of Gympass’ longest-standing fitness partners, since signing up in 2018. The partnership initially ran in 68 Everyone Active centres before expanding across the entire estate of over 180 sites once the partnership proved its worth and value.

Key to the success of the partnership for Everyone Active was seeing Gympass unlock a whole new customer base comprising inactive employees from its corporate partners.

“Gympass focuses on inactive employees which is a specific demographic that we, as an operator, find very hard to reach,” says Duncan Jefford, Everyone Active Regional Director. “It’s of great value to us that Gympass can unlock this previously inaccessible group for us and bring inactive people into our centres.

“There is huge merit in Gympass being able to go where we can’t - to the heart of the corporate organisations. The people coming to us via Gympass represent a completely different customer profile, adding great value to our organisation. Furthermore, its model provides a real opportunity for us as we expand our business,” says Jefford.

“Everyone Active is an excellent partner whose diverse and nationwide offering is an attractive proposition for our corporate partners,” says Eamon Lloyd, Gympass VP Head of Europe Partnerships. “From gym, swim and group exercise to racquet sports, yoga, spa facilities and boutique options all under one roof, Everyone Active offers a fantastic all-round experience for our Gympass clients. We seek to encourage people to find an activity to love and the wide choice offered by Everyone Active gives people plenty of options to try.”
