We have all heard of making new acquaintances at the supermarket, but it would seem that your local gym could offer just as much match-making potential! The latest exclusive consumer research from MINTEL shows that as many as one in five (19%) private health club members have met good friends or a partner at their gym, while one in four (26%) see their club as a good place to meet like-minded people. What is more, around one in five (19%) enjoy socialising in the bar after a workout and a similar proportion (17%) have been to a club organised event.
