While compensation levels for hourly workers in the fitness industry also vary by region, it is interesting to note how consistent the overall dollar amounts are. There is far less consistency in the number of hours worked. The averages reported here are collected from IDEA business and program director members who participated in the 1999 IDEA Industry Compensation Survey. Respondents are managers who work in multipurpose health clubs (26%); personal training studios (13%); group exercise studios (9%); fitness-only health clubs (8%); hospital fitness centers (8%); colleges/universities (7%); corporate fitness centers (7%); YMCA/YWCA/JCCs (7%); and satellite classes, with no facility (6%).
