Aug 27, 2007
Starting a business in the fitness industry can be a profitable and enjoyable endeavor. There are many different types of businesses that you can start in this niche market. You will need to do research and learn about fitness and general wellness to succeed.
Become a Trade Show Vendor:

A trade show vendor is an excellent way to travel and enjoy the fitness industry world. You can merge with a wholesale supplier that will allow you to sell their fitness products at trade shows. Research and find trade shows that are in your local area to set up exhibits. Even though people do not always buy at the trade shows, it is an excellent way to gather contacts and potential customers.

Many trade shows offer free seminars, guest speakers, and other fun activities related to the trade show theme. You not only get to make money with the trade show exhibitions, but you can also learn more about the fitness industry in general by participating in the events.

Become a Fitness Products Reviewer:
Starting a business as a fitness products reviewer is very simple. In fact, it is so simple that many people completely overlook this opportunity. During your spare time, you can read about and even test fitness products. Your next step is to write a review of the product and submit it to online companies that pay people for reviews.

For a good fitness product review, you will want to include average price for the product. What did you like about the product? What did you not like about the product? What were the features of the product? Where do you find the product on the market?

The average review is between 300 to 500 words. If you have a flair for writing and are already in the fitness industry, starting business as a product reviewer is fun and rewarding.

Become a Fitness Products Distributor:
Starting business as a fitness products distributor requires some initial investment for the products. Typically if you are going to be a distributor you can purchase the products at wholesale prices and in bulk quantity.

There are many ways to distribute fitness products. For example, you can join an affiliation program. Another method is to sell fitness products to local gyms in your area. You can even visit spas and resorts to distribute fitness equipment.

You can also join an affiliate program with a reputable company to become a fitness product distributor. You will need to purchase items ahead of time and can make residual income streams if you select several company's affiliation programs.

Starting business in the fitness industry can be extremely profitable. You do not have to limit yourself to strictly one type of business, but you can even do several at a time. For example, you can write product reviews and submit to buyers during the evening hours or on your laptop while you are working as a trade show exhibitor.

As the old saying goes, when starting business for any type of product or information, do not put all your eggs in one basket. You can find many methods for starting businesses in the fitness industry that you can combine until you settle on one or two that are ideal for you.
