The Gym Group’s chief exec on limbering up for expansion

Low-cost gyms have powered their way into the spotlight of the UK’s £5bn health and fitness market.

Budget gym operators were highlighted as the fastest-growing segment of the industry in the latest findings by PwC, having increased their market share to 12% of total revenue in 2018, up from 3% in 2012.

In this podcast, Richard Darwin, chief executive of The Gym Group, joins EG in the studio to discuss how the low-cost fitness industry is faring and how the company plans to take advantage of empty retail spaces.
