Industries usually have cycles. Some may see growth and decline, while others stay stagnant. The health and fitness industry--a $20 billion industry--is one of the few that has continued growth and it does not seem to be declining. Trends come and go but everyone can agree that staying fit and healthy is a way of life and that will not change. This industry has seen double digit growth in the past 10 years and as more and more people move to eating healthier, organic foods, you can expect more people will be wanting to get in shape. In fact, there has been a 44% increase in U.S. gym memberships in the past ten years. Opening a gym franchise helps you capitalize on this growing trend toward fitness.
