When sport meets fitness

by Kate Cracknell

Sport is just one part of a far larger entity that is physical activity, observed Jennie Price at the ukactive Summit in November – hardly a shocking revelation in itself, but nevertheless an interesting perspective coming from the CEO of Sport England, whose mission up to this point has been to develop grassroots sport across the UK. [more...]

Upgrading the industry

by Kate Cracknell

The National Living Wage is coming, and operators across the UK will be trying to work how they can afford it. It will certainly be a challenge in a sector that has long relied on fairly low-paid staff, but we believe it presents an interesting opportunity to upgrade the industry. [more...]

Active Every Day

by Kate Cracknell

The health and fitness industry is failing to capitalise on one of the greatest opportunities it’s ever had, according to Liz Terry, editor of Health Club Management’s sister magazine Leisure Management. [more...]

A new call to action

by Kate Cracknell

Young or old, disabled or able-bodied, fit or unfit, the brief is clear: we should all be active on a daily basis. This is the unambiguous and very welcome message from Public Health England (PHE) in Everybody Active, Every Day – its recently published national framework designed to combat inactivity. Hear, hear PHE. In their bold simplicity, the four words ‘everybody active, every day’ become more than just the name of the framework – they become a rallying cry for the fitness sector as a whole. [more...]

Being socially useful

by Kate Cracknell

Has your organisation recognised the value of being genuinely useful to its community – not settling for ‘doing good by helping people get healthy’, but actually putting community interests at the heart of the business? [more...]

Embracing active design

by Kate Cracknell

People should be active every day, with opportunities to do so designed into the very fabric of our environments and our daily lives. That was the clear message of last month’s inspirational Active by Design Summit, organised by the UK’s Design Council. So how might this look in practice, and what does it mean for health club operators? [more...]

Obesity responsibility

by Kate Cracknell

How should we define obesity – is it a disease, a disability or a lifestyle condition? And why does the definition matter? [more...]

The feelgood factor

by Kate Cracknell

What really motivates you to exercise today? Are distant goals sufficiently engaging on a day-to-day basis, or will today’s gym visit be more about simply wanting to feel energised and positive about the day? [more...]

On-track with tracking?

by Kate Cracknell

We're hearing more and more about the ‘quantified self’, and this trend is now steering a course directly towards us, with news of some exciting and disruptive deals that won’t just bring tracking to the doorsteps of our clubs, but right into the heart of our businesses. [more...]

23 and a half hours

by Kate Cracknell

Can you limit your sitting and sleeping to 23 and a half hours a day? That’s the thought-provoking question asked by Dr Mike Evans in a fantastic short film which everyone in the sector should watch (see www.health-club.co.uk/film). In less than 10 minutes he makes a compelling case for exercise, setting out the extensive health benefits but also, crucially, making these seem achievable. All we need to do is limit our inactivity to 23 and a half hours a day, or 23 hours for children. [more...]

Creating ‘wellness cities’

by Kate Cracknell

Recommendations made in January that two new garden cities be built in southern England to ease the UK’s housing shortage have prompted fierce political debate. [more...]

Physical inactivity kills

by Kate Cracknell

The primary focus of the fitness industry must be addressing physical inactivity. That was the very clear message coming out of November’s ukactive Summit – the gathering place for UK policymakers to discuss sport and fitness. The event saw a well-orchestrated strategic shift away from a focus on combating obesity towards a new focus on inactivity as a standalone issue, with all the key speakers highlighting the challenges in this area. [more...]

Time to fight for QOF inclusion

by Kate Cracknell

The campaign to present exercise as medicine has been delivered a blow with the removal of physical activity from the QOF (Quality and Outcomes Framework) – see Health Club Management 2014 issue 1 p10. [more...]

Tapping into wellness tourism

by Kate Cracknell

As health clubs align themselves more closely with wellness, exciting new opportunities are emerging. [more...]

Rebranding exercise

by Kate Cracknell

Your members are more likely to stick with their exercise routines and remain in membership if they have tangible, immediate reasons for being physically active. [more...]

Beyond the 12 per cent barrier

by Kate Cracknell

The UK fitness sector has reached a plateau in its product lifecycle: after the rapid growth of the noughties, it’s been stuck at roughly the same level of market penetration – 12 per cent – for years, with only the arrival of the budget clubs nudging it up a meagre half point (State of the UK Fitness Industry Report).
