Fitness Franchises

The fitness sector has seen rapid growth over recent years leading to the rise of fitness franchises.

There are now around 9 million fitness clubs in the UK. This trend is set to grow as more people enjoy keeping themselves fit. Many fitness clubs now remain open 24 hours a day plus have flexible memberships to enable people working shifts or unsociable hours to keep to their fitness regime.

It's not all about gym franchises though. Their are many fitness franchise opportunities available in the UK. Some of these include swimming, yoga, football, rubgy & even martial arts and self defence fitness franchises.

There are even franchises that offer ballet classes & dance classes for children, an excellent way to combat the child obesity problem with making excercise fun.

With growing obesity & diabetes amoing adults & children the growing fitness trend & business is a positive sign for peoples health. With the strong media focus on fitness & health generally this is an industry trend that's set to continue.
