Franchise Opportunities

With summer in full swing, families are hitting the beaches, swimming pools, and other outdoor water-related activities, making fitness franchises a hot investment as Americans look to get in their ‘summer bod’ shape. And nowhere is that trend hotter than California fitness franchises. 

According to Mordor Intelligence, the global health and fitness club market is projected to achieve a CAGR of 7.21 percent between 2022 to 2027. The key market drivers for this growth are attributed to consumers willing to spend more on health and fitness clubs, with a rising focus on personal health driving market growth across the world. The rise in fitness centers offering personal training both in-person and online along with new fitness equipment and program offerings like hot yoga, high-altitude training rooms, metabolic testing equipment, medical exercise areas, and day spas, are attracting consumers to join health and fitness clubs. 

This growth surpasses previous estimations from Allied Market Research, which forecast that the global fitness and recreational sports centers market size valued at $83,680 million in 2016, was expected to reach $113 billion by 2023, projecting a CAGR of 4.4 percent over 2017 to 2023.
