Research shows that, as of 2017, one in seven people are gym members and the fitness industry is worth an estimated £4.7 billion. It’s also estimated that 10 million people in the UK will be members of a gym by 2018.
Almost half of Brits began ‘pre-toxing’ (attempting to lose weight and feel good) in the run up to festive season, but only a third will actually manage to see their shiny new diet and fitness regime through to the end of January.
