There has been exponential growth in the elderly enrolling in gyms. Fitness center enrollment for individuals over 55 have surged 273% from 1993 to 2003.

Memberships for individuals under 18 and 55+ have significantly increased in four years. Users under the age of 18 have increased by 12.3% and consumers over 55 have increased enrollment by 13.1%

Pricing techniques are quite intricate within the industry. Fitness facilities usually begin their affiliation with members through a one-time enrollment fee. The average fee within the industry is $150. Additionally, new members generally commit to a contract and a specified monthly or yearly membership fee. Many other methods of payment are prevalent, such as month-to-month and pay-as-you-go. But, contract subscriptions are most effective, in which 30% of members drop and 70% renew after the contract expiries. Bally Total Fitness has traditionally aimed to commit customers for longer periods, but has proven to be unpopular. Furthermore, facility fees serve as an additional source of revenue. This maintenance charge accounts for 28% of revenue for a traditional health club. However, profitability largely comes from personal trainer add-on programs, which accounts for 50% of revenue. These alternative sources of revenue are seen as the future for health club industry as they struggle to increase revenue from membership dues alone.

    Institutional holding and market friction Ping-Wen Sun Louisiana State University [email protected] Abstract This study investigates the relationship between the institutional holding and the stock’s market friction measure. According to Sun’s (2007) findings, I use Hou and Moskowitz’s (2005) price delay measure (D1) and Liu’s (2006) liquidity measure (LM12) to proxy for a stock’s market friction. I find that a higher total institutional holding tends to decrease a stock’s price delay measure, but institutional holding exhibits a U-shaped relationship with a stock’s LM12 measure. However, as the
