lowest price, targets a broad market .
The Gym Group and Pure Gym announced plans on 11th February 2014, to merge amid growing consumer demand for low-fee, high quality and flexible health & fitness club memberships.
Pending regulatory approval.
REASONS FOR MERGER:

Continue to rapidly expand its network of gyms
Rising utility rates (electricity) still puts the gym at an advantage as THE GYM is the lowest operating one.
Rising wage rates do not affect the gym much because of very limited staff.
The gym uses eco-friendly technology practicing green sustainability. All machines are self-powered.
No cash payment option - only online payments accepted.
Fluctuating monthly joining fee.
No 24*7 personnel availability--> safety issue concerns.
According to customer reviews the gym has large space but limited equipment --> overcrowding leads to members leaving the gym.
Government initiatives to promote healthy living increases opportunities to build up a bigger customer base for The Gym.
The exponential rise in the obesity rates in the UK --> attract people seeking more gym memberships.
Social aspect- rising alcohol consumption levels pressurizes people to remain healthy, thus join gyms.
Low cost gyms face threat of substitutes. people may join legacy clubs in search of extra facilities such as swimming pools, sauna, cafes etc.
Joining university clubs or sports clubs may serve as substitutes as well that operate at a low cost.
People may buy gym equipment from the market as one time investment rather than seeking gym memberships.
In today's techno-savvy world, other gaming consoles that promote exercise such as Wii have led people to stay home.
