It's being asked for a gym membership.... together with my address, health insurance details... just about everything but the colour of my underwear.

I can understand this is a number that is given out to an employer... perhaps even to a bank when asking for a loan. But I'm not understanding why a gym might need it, or if it's normal to give it out... I'm afraid I don't have the letter with me (also at work).
Probably so you get a discount on health insurance.
The only 'bad' thing they could do with the no is to set you up on their payroll & pay you some money......
