The survey also looked at types of club ownership among respondents, finding the following membership patterns:

• Privately owned – 24%
• Multisite operators – 14%
• Franchised club – 40%
• University club – 4%
• Council owned/managed – 5%
• Council owned/contract managed – 2%
• Other – 11%

With over 11,000 members and nearly 1,000 clubs responding to the survey in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong, the Fitness Industry Survey survey is the largest of its kind in the world.
