Our partners at Alliance TA6 have published the results of a national survey conducted amongst over 4,000 people. The aim of the survey was to gather some headline data on the feelings of the public towards exercise and their fitness levels during and post lockdown, and to help leisure operators make more informed decisions on re-opening their facilities.

With operators, many very nervous about what post-lockdown will look like for the sector, the team at Alliance TA6 wanted to support the sector in their understanding and decided by collecting information on what the public were feeling towards their own fitness and wellbeing.

This survey was conducted between the 20th – 29th April 2020 with a completion rate of 100% and resulted in over 4,000 responses.  It was distributed primarily via leisure operators on their social media channels.


59% of respondents said they had maintained or even increased their exercise levels during lockdown

87% reported that leisure centres and clubs would still play a part in their exercise routines post lockdown

88% of people expect their fitness levels to stay the same or increase post lockdown

76% reported they wanted to improve their fitness and wellbeing as a result of being in lockdown

35% of non-members said they’d consider joining a membership post lockdown
