Pilates Still Showing Stable Growth

The results of its IDEA ’s 14th annual Fitness Programs & Equipment Trends Report were released recently, and they showed sustained growth for Pilates offerings within health clubs. The survey, which is geared to fitness program directors and facility managers, found that Pilates exercise has steadily increased as a mind-body offering in health clubs over the past 9 years, growing from 47% to 70%. Pilates equipment has also enjoyed an increase in usage in the 8 years IDEA has tracked it, growing from 29% to 44%. Forty-three percent of respondents expected Pilates equipment in health clubs to grow. And one-on-one Pilates or yoga training grew by 8% over last year.

Overall, IDEA reported that respondents have a positive attitude about the fitness industry, which has proven to be stable during the global economic downturn. More respondents are expecting to grow than those expecting declines.
