Fitness franchises offer one of the more diverse franchising opportunities, and they can be very rewarding for the right franchisee. Due to the obesity epidemic in North America, the fitness franchise industry has been growing steadily over the years, and so too have opportunities for those looking for a fitness franchise.
There are two main types of fitness franchise opportunities you can buy into: gyms, and health clinics. Gym franchises offer just what you would expect including weight training and cardio equipment, as well as group classes in things like yoga, kickboxing, and aerobics. Canadian gym franchises range from large to small companies. The larger ones offer more amenities but charge higher membership fees than the smaller ones.
Canadian health clinic franchises on the other hand are more focused on promoting good nutrition and health supplements. The weight loss industry in Canada is huge, and many people turn to health clinic franchises to help them out with creating a diet that will meet their weight loss goals.
