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.
