Now is a better time than ever to join our industry by opening a SOLDIERFIT fitness club franchise. If you’re passionate about working out and helping others, you might just find that ours is the right franchise opportunity for you. Keep reading to learn more about why now is a great time to invest in our industry!
One of the most compelling reasons to invest in the fitness industry? It has been steadily growing since 2014. Valued at around $33 billion, and with annual growth estimated at 2.6%, there is plenty of potential for profit in the fitness industry. A large portion of the industry is made up by health clubs, like our fitness gym franchises, which have also been increasing in number in the United States for years.
There are a few possible reasons for the strength of the fitness business in the United States. For one, our country in particular is embroiled in a serious obesity crisis. Nearly 40% of Americans are affected by obesity – that’s more than one in three people. With obesity comes a number of serious health risks, diabetes and heart disease being just a couple of the potential major problems that can arise. Americans know that they need to achieve better health, and they’re willing to spend money to accomplish their goals.
Not only are gyms growing as a whole, but people also have taken a shine to group classes like the ones led at SOLDIERFIT fitness club franchises. In SOLDIERFIT classes, a group of members are led through an exercise routine by a nationally certified personal trainer that we call a “Black hat.” They’re given some degree of one-on-one attention by an expert who will get to know them and their goals (incidentally, working with highly-qualified fitness professionals is also an important factor for many consumers). SOLDIERFIT members can rest assured that they’re making the most of their time and are getting in the most effective workout. In the group environment, our members also forge bonds with their peers and are given the opportunity to push their limits together. When you franchise with SOLDIERFIT, you’ll be supplying your community with the kind of group classes they crave to get in shape!
Another industry trend that SOLDIERFIT embodies is functional fitness. In the past, the term “group exercise class” might have conjured up images of sparkling leotards and dancing in front of a mirror. Today’s gym-goer is looking for something more – fitness skills that will benefit them in their life outside the gym, not just a fun-filled workout. SOLDIERFIT fitness gym franchises stand out because we want our members to totally revitalize their mindset and their physical abilities. Similar to the boot camp experience our classes are based on, we teach our members skills that they can easily put to use in their day-to-day lives. Focusing on function and form first, not aesthetics, is so important to us that we don’t even put mirrors in our gyms! We want our members to focus on their personal growth rather than just on their biceps.
These are just a few reasons why industry trends point to now being a great time to invest in a SOLDIERFIT fitness club franchise. For more information about this great opportunity, contact us today.
