Waterparks make waves in Europe

by Aleatha Ezra

New waterpark projects and additions continue to come online at a steady pace throughout the European market. Take, for example, the investment of €10m (US$13.6m, £8.3m) that PortAventura made in its Costa Caribe Aquatic Park in 2013. [more...]

Saving species and engaging people

by Jennifer Fields

The primary goal of zoos and aquariums accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) is to save species and engage people. As poaching has reached its highest level in decades and continues to increase, this goal is more important than ever before. [more...]

Physical inactivity kills

by Kate Cracknell

The primary focus of the fitness industry must be addressing physical inactivity. That was the very clear message coming out of November’s ukactive Summit – the gathering place for UK policymakers to discuss sport and fitness. The event saw a well-orchestrated strategic shift away from a focus on combating obesity towards a new focus on inactivity as a standalone issue, with all the key speakers highlighting the challenges in this area. [more...]

Time to fight for QOF inclusion

by Kate Cracknell

Beyond the 12 per cent barrier

by Kate Cracknell

The UK fitness sector has reached a plateau in its product lifecycle: after the rapid growth of the noughties, it’s been stuck at roughly the same level of market penetration – 12 per cent – for years, with only the arrival of the budget clubs nudging it up a meagre half point (State of the UK Fitness Industry Report). [more...]

Managing health clubs

by Liz Terry

There's never been a better time to be in the health and fitness industry. Every day new research emerges to prove that exercise can help practically every known health problem, from depression to cancer – as well as being the most effective anti-ageing treatment. [more...]

Embracing your 'tribes'

by Kate Cracknell

Health club operators have a huge opportunity to engage in a very fundamental way with their members, by being far more aware of their true needs and motivations and connecting with them on a deeper level. [more...]

How to stop the hospitality sector's drop out rate

by Peter Ducker

To plagiarise The Monkees, I'm a believer. I believe that the hospitality, leisure and tourism industry offers great career opportunities, rewards talent and recognises commitment. Yet it is still perceived by many as a job rather than a career. [more...]

Traineeships – a unique opportunity

by Ian Taylor

It brings me great pleasure to announce that SkillsActive is supporting Traineeships and the potential these can offer and bring to our sector. Starting in September 2013 and formed as an outcome of the 'Richard Review', Traineeships are designed for young people aged 16-19 who are highly focused on the prospect of work, who are unemployed, have little experience and are qualified below level 3 (A-Levels). [more...]

Training citizen scientists

by Jennifer Fields

Visitors to zoos and aquariums accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) come away from the experience wanting to do more to help the wildlife they just saw up close. [more...]

Sharing water safety messages

by Aleatha Ezra

Now the summer season is approaching, waterpark operators throughout Europe and the US are gearing up to welcome millions of guests to their parks. The beginning of the high season is the perfect time for water parks to share key water safety messages with their guests to make them aware of the role they play in staying safe in and around the water and in drowning prevention.
