HCM – or Health Club Management magazine as it was in days gone by – has been my trusted news source for as long as I can remember.
I, along with many members of the Alliance Leisure team, have also been a regular contributor to independent editorial pieces and also an investor in marketing with HCM.
The publication has built a large, loyal international readership, so we know that by appearing in its pages we’re reaching a larger audience than we could reach on our own, and this has helped to amplify our contribution to the inactivity, levelling up and sustainability agendas.
HCM continues to serve the sector, providing a vital source of impartial news, while creating a platform from which to discuss, debate and share vital information.
Hats off to Liz Terry, Jan Williams and the team. Recent years have been testing for us all, but HCM’s editorial quality has never wavered.

HCM in all its formats – digital and print – has always provided a fantastic overview of what’s happening in the industry, at home and abroad.
The print magazine has also long been a regular staple on our office coffee table and is a great source of news for all the latest innovations, expertise, news and features.
We have a long-standing relationship with HCM, and over the past few years, the team have helped us raise our company profile, through what has been a difficult time for all. We celebrate this 300th issue and look forward to the next 300!

Where would the industry be without HCM? In my 24 years working in communications for the fitness sector, it’s remained everyone’s first port of call for up-to-date news, comment and analysis. For our clients, it’s the place to be seen; a vital tool for sharing their news, as well as staying abreast of changes, innovations and developments. Whether UK-based or worldwide, HCM is the go-to fitness industry publication.

HCM continues to provide a premium news service for all those working in and interested in the leisure sector.
The monthly print edition remains the coffee table magazine of choice, crammed full of best practice examples, innovations, research and insights, while the digital news feed and ezines deliver news as it breaks, helping us and others to make decisions based on the most up-to-date information.
In the last few years, the marketing team has helped us to elevate our brand to a level of visibility that’s now driving talks with global partners.

Funxtion serves a global market, but has a head office in the Netherlands, so it’s absolutely vital that we work with partners to help us deliver our messages, news of product launches, as well as insight and innovations beyond our local environment.
HCM, along with its sister title, Fit Tech, provides us with the perfect platform. It has a global audience and its association with many of the key international industry shows and exhibitions means that, through a connection with the title, we’re able to influence audiences we would otherwise find difficult to reach.
Funxtion is focused on helping businesses succeed with high-quality fitness content. It’s great to work with a media partner who shares the same values and ambitions! Congratulations to Liz Terry and the team on reaching the 300th issue. We’re looking forward to working together with you on many more.

HCM is a wonderful and professional magazine that represents our exciting industry really well. Over many years, I’ve observed this aspiring publication turn into a fully-matured, high-end magazine for the fitness industry. The high-level imagery and stories have motivated me as a reader, and as a business owner, to invest in marketing Orbit4 and our sister brands with HCM. It’s great to be seen alongside other industry-leading brands.

Congratulations to HCM on its 300th edition of the magazine. We’re honoured to have been included as regular contributors to the publication over the years, helping us to reach and engage with key stakeholders within the industry.
HCM’s extensive network and audience reach have allowed us to showcase our work to current customers while connecting with a potential new customer base. The wide-ranging features and regular editorial slots have allowed us to share a variety of news; from recent additions to our equipment range, and the development of our connected ecosystem Trakk, to company profile slots, spotlighting our key team members and positioning both these figures and Pulse as industry leaders.
We’re particularly proud of our regular newsletter PulseBeat, published in HCM, that has allowed us to showcase our projects and expertise in depth.
We thank HCM for their continued support and look forward to working with the team on the next 300 editions of the magazine!

I’ve been reliant on HCM to keep me up to date with industry news for as long as I can remember. The integrity of the team and the quality of the writing are second-to-none, and are just a couple of reasons why I continue to rate HCM as a go-to news channel of choice.
As a training provider celebrating our 30th year in the fitness sector, we value HCM as an effective means of keeping the wider sector up to date with our news, product launches and industry insights, helping us to amplify what we do so that we can reach and support more learners and aspiring fitness professionals.
The last few years have been testing for all of us, but HCM continued to deliver a vital service throughout. Well done, all. Here’s to the next 300 must-read issues!

Refer All works closely with national bodies, leisure providers, and local authorities who deliver health-related programmes.
Our industry news and updates come from HCM’s timely articles, which keep us up to date on both the national and local fronts.
We’ve been delighted to be featured in HCM many times and without it, we’d struggle to discover a platform that so effectively highlights exercise referral and physical activity direction in the sector.

Congratulations from all the team at 1FitLife. HCM plays a very important role within the fitness sector and has supported our company over the past five years, creating fitness and wellness content.
Thank you for your continued support and well done for hitting the 300th edition milestone!

The health and fitness industry is one of change and innovation, built on strong relationships and partnerships, and for the last 20 years or so, we at Precor have enjoyed the support of the entire team at HCM; though a special mention has to be made for Liz Terry, for her thoughtful guidance both in the HCM publications and in personal, quiet asides.
During this time, Precor developments have included new products, ranges and solutions aimed at providing an even better experience for clubs and members. Now part of Peloton Commercial, we’re looking forward to the future with optimism.
HCM has always represented our sector with professionalism and clarity, offering invaluable insight on a daily basis, and we’re proud to have been on this journey with you.

HCM is a great supporter of the research insight we generate and the event we run. It’s my go-to publication when it comes to keeping up with the sector and assists me in maintaining my network, enhancing my knowledge and benchmarking (stealing!) ideas.
HCM informs and guides the sector. It was invaluable through lockdown, and was the focus of a number of excellent campaigns to support the sector in difficult times.
Thank you to the HCM team.
