Growth of fitness franchises
The article points out how much growth the fitness industry and its franchises have seen in recent years. There once was a major advantage to being one of the so called big box gyms, but in recent years, there has been a major shift in that sort of thinking. Many people are now flocking to much smaller gyms that feature a certain type of specialized technique. You have probably noticed many of them popping up in your neighborhoods. They are the kickboxing and boxing gyms, the yoga studios or the crossfit gyms. The singular concept and smaller sized gyms seem to be overtaking the fitness industry. Many people may become confused or overwhelmed by the bigger gyms and may start searching for a gym where they can get a little more guidance to help them along the way. This is where they are pulling the customers in, and as far as franchise owners, most of them love the unique and tailored business plans and lower start up and operational costs. It is far easier for business owners to maintain and control a smaller gym when compared to the much larger gyms.
The growth of 9Round
Currently, 9Round is one of the most competitive and successful fitness franchises. They seem to have an edge on the fitness market and are not afraid to take advantage of the boom in the fitness franchising industry. While they have only been in the franchising industry for only five years, they have seen tremendous growth that has shown no sign of slowing down. 9Round has expanded its franchise locations across a total of thirty six states in the US and, just recently, Canada. They now have 166 fitness centers up and running, and 136 of these have been up and running since the beginning of 2013. There are also more than 100 additional locations that are in various stages of development. 9Round hopes to see this fitness trend continue and their growth to only accelerate. They are expecting to have a total of 1,000 fitness centers up and running by 2018.
9Round could not be more excited by the press they have earned in Franchising USA and hopes to see their fitness franchise grow. They look forward to turning their brand into one of the most respected names in the fitness industry.
