Physical Fitness: an Investigation of Consumer Involvement

ABSTRACT - Physical fitness is a growing area of consumer activity. This study investigates the nature of consumers who participate in activities that aid fitness by distinguishing among three consumer segments based on their expenditures for products and services to support physical fitness activities. The results show the segments can be characterized in terms of their patterns of relatively passive and relatively active leisure pursuits, their attitudes, and their demographics and media habits.
