The Fitness Industry In Thailand
One thing is for sure the fitness industry in Thailand is an exciting area to be involved in.
The industry as a whole is currently worth $50 million but is growing at an impressive rate of about 4% per year. But what is driving this?
This is a trend we see a lot in developing nations. A combination of social media, i.e., seeing how your favorite influencers look and wanting to copy their bodies, as well as ever-improving dietary and exercise information. Fifty years ago, the concept of exercising to stay fit was very rudimentary in Thailand, but now the streets of Bangkok are buzzing with talk of this new exercise regime or this fancy new diet.
Speaking of Bangkok, it really is the hub of the gym scene. A recent survey estimated that 40% of Bangkok residents visit the gym 2-3 times per week, the two biggest venues being sites operated by Virgin Active and Fitness First. If you’re looking for a high-end, quality gym, these are the two best options.
As Thailand’s economy continues to grow, these people have more disposable income, which means more emphasis on gym memberships, with the average gym goer spending about 2500 baht on gym costs.
So what is the number 1 exercise that Thai people like to do? You purists out there will be glad to know it’s good old-fashioned running. 51% of people surveyed say it’s their primary form of exercise. However, this isn’t the running of the past; it’s impossible in Bangkok because of numerous factors like a lack of green space, bad air quality, and the sheer heat outside. This means that most people run on treadmills in indoor facilities where you can more easily track progress and enjoy the air-conditioned environs.
Another interesting wrinkle in all of this is the explosion of dietary supplements. 39% of gym goers supplement their food intake with whey protein, and of course, Red Bull is also voraciously drunk to help you hoist that little bit of extra weight when deadlifting.
