Health And Fitness Franchises -- A Potential Gold Mine?

Dec 6, 2007
If you're interested in investing in a health and franchise opportunity, then you will want to read this article. Specifically in this article we will discuss trends in the health and fitness industry which indicate that investing in a franchise opportunity related to this field is a wise idea. Finally, we'll go over some common sense points that anyone should know about before purchasing a franchise opportunity.

Woman only exercise facilities and gym memberships have risen quite rapidly. Because of this, the weight-loss industry has also grown because more women are able to lose weight through these specialized gyms. Right now, exclusive training facilities for women account for about a third of all the fitness centers in the nation. This would indicate a potential for good investment in this kind of franchise.

Also, if you look at the sales of fitness clubs in general, you'll see that they have increased over the last few years. How much is the sales revenue at fitness clubs? Try over $14 billion. This would indicate another good potential for investment in these type of health and fitness franchises.

Finally, most women have had more success losing weight with these type of woman only training regimens than with pills, dieting gimmicks and nutritional programs. Almost every woman's biggest desire bills with her appearance. Since the trends seem to point to health and fitness memberships, specifically woman only facilities, as the best way for women to lose weight, it would stand to reason that more more women will resort to these methods. A good indicator for a potential franchise investment.

A great industry is one of the top factors you should be looking at when investing in a franchise. Sure, it might not be the franchise you have the most interest in, but in the end that's not what matters. I suggest that new franchisees make a "Top 5 List of Industries they like" and then a "Top 5 List of the Most Profitable Performing Industries Currently." After this top 5 list is made, try to see if any of the industries you like match up with any franchisors that are reporting great profits. If you find one that matches, up then you are in great shape for a successful franchise opportunity. If you cannot find one that matches up, then it's back to the drawing board. The worse mistake you can make is investing in a bad industry, in the end you will be sorry. It's better to wait for the perfect opportunity then to rush into a life long investment.

If you're interested in investing in health and fitness franchises, I cannot imagine a hotter opportunity than this specific niche. Not only are the numbers growing, but they seem to indicate they will continue growing as the word-of-mouth spreads. The best time to get on any rising trend is on the ground floor. Do the research necessary, and at the very least look into this sector for franchise opportunities. Follow the trends given in this article, and you will see for yourself the opportunities that what you.
