The New Zealand Fitness Industry - An Overview
The fitness industry in NZ is made up of around 300-360 operators. On average there seems to be 11-15 employees (not including group fitness) in a workplace and if you remove the ‘big players’ the average is closer to 6-8.
There are large numbers of Personal Trainers some contracted and some employed.
The number of group fitness instructors is huge (far outweighing the gym instructors) as the delivery of a timetable requires large numbers of part time contractors (mainly) often co-ordinated by an employee.
In total it is estimated that fitness employees and contractors number somewhere between 4000-5000.
