Fitness franchises have always proven to be one of the most stable franchise investments. Recession aside, America’s love affair with physical fitness is showing no signs of abating. Interestingly, a new slice of the sector is experiencing great growth: youth fitness franchises.
It’s an interesting development. Certainly, the bedrock of fitness franchises has for a long time been young professionals, people whose careers are too demanding for a jog in the park every evening. And while America has no shortage of sports and activities for young people, youth fitness franchises have an enjoyed an upsurge in popularity precisely at a time when concerns about childhood obesity are at a heightened state and at-home activities like the internet and gaming are becoming more integral to young people’s lives.
Adults who've become reliant on gyms for staying fit are turning towards fitness franchises aimed at young people to keep their children healty and active. These fitness centres are perfectly-tailored to young people, and stress fun as well as fitness. And, gradually, the industry has taken off. Entrepreneur magazine certainly noticed this trend: they described youth fitness franchises as one of the fastest-growing business opportunities in America recently.
