Britons still ready to run to the gym

Britain's love affair with getting fit is showing no sign of running out of puff, with health and fitness clubs, including those in hotels, reporting rising membership numbers and revenue levels.

A study by business adviser KPMG has found that the average club has seen membership numbers rise by 15% since last year, with the average revenue per member up by 10%, from £417 in 2000 to £460 in 2001.

Hotel health and fitness clubs made up some 25% of the 45 clubs sampled, said Rob Bailey, KPMG's travel, leisure and tourism manager.

He noted that hotel clubs often had an advantage in that overheads could be shared with other parts of the hotel.
