Resumo: Physical exercise is no longer seen only as leisure but it has also become a need to wellbeing, health promotion, stress reduction and obesity combating. Other reasons are added, which are related to harmony, body cult, aesthetics, ageing delay and emotional rebalance – concept of wellness diffused in Gyms and Health Clubs (GHC). These must permanently interact with the members in their constant maintenance – retention. There are three reasons for a member to continue participating: to perceive at least one benefit through the participation, to attribute value to that benefit and to believe that the participation will create benefit.
