SFIA Releases Second Batch of Single Sport Reports Featuring the Fitness Activities Category

24 Individual Fitness Reports Are Now Available for Purchase

SILVER SPRING, MD (June 15, 2023) – The Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) has released its second of three batches of 2023 Single Sport Reports, including 24 individual reports from the fitness activity category – including conditioning, strength, and aerobic activities.

As reported in our 2023 Topline Participation Report, facility-based fitness activities like elliptical, group stationary cycling, and weight resistance machines, which struggled as clubs were closed during COVID, have yet to return to pre-pandemic levels. However, we have seen positive change, as yoga grew more than 10% in that same period of time, and trail running and day hiking participation grew for the fifth straight year.

“Overall fitness participation rates grew consistently through the unprecedented disruption of last three years, which is very encouraging,” said Tom Cove, President & CEO, SFIA. “At the same time, our research indicates dramatic movement up and down across fitness-specific activities. This batch of Single Sport Reports will provide an in-depth breakdown of participants in 24 different fitness activity categories and the participation trends over a 5-year period.”

Each report provides a detailed analysis and breakdown of participation by various demographics for each fitness activity. This includes data on participation as defined by gender, participation frequency, age, geographic region, market size area, income, education level, cross-sport/activity participation, and ethnicity.

The following 24 Single Sport Reports are now available:

This is the second batch of Single Sport Reports released for 2023. 32 Single Sport Reports are also available for purchase from the team, racquet, and action sports categories.

All 2023 SFIA Single Sport and Fitness Participation Reports are $100 each for SFIA Members and $300 per report for non-members.

These reports are provided free of charge to members of the media.
