UK fitness and wellbeing is one of the top growth-oriented sectors, largely due to the rising awareness of health and wellbeing consciousness. There were approximately 7,239 health and fitness clubs in the UK in 2020. The fitness industry is estimated to be worth £3.9 billion by 2022. In 2017, 5.7 million Brits held a gym membership, and this is estimated to reach 7 million by 2022.
The issue of health and fitness is never long out of the media these days. With obesity levels rising and the NHS straining under the weight of treating related illnesses, there’s a high demand for gyms and fitness centres. Exercise comes in many forms, and most commercial gyms will offer group classes and an area for individual fitness training.
Technology has become an integral part of the fitness club and is being used in maintaining customer data and health status indicators with hardware, software, and cloud services. The fitness sector has massive potential with a positive future because of the general UK population's health and well-being awareness.
The rise of the health and fitness chains over the past decade is proof enough that people are willing to dedicate a lot of their time and money to get in shape. But the smaller, more independent gym could offer something a bit more personal, and if you’re keen to open a commercial gym, that could be the market for you. Many entrepreneurs write a business plan only when they need to secure start-up financing.
However, your plan is far more than a document for banks and investors to read; it’s an invaluable roadmap for launching and growing your business. To put your health centre business concept on paper, you need to think through and research the many factors needed to make sure your business is a success.
To launch a fitness centre, you need to prepare yourself for long working hours and a lot of strategic planning. If you would like to work your venture ideas out, please call +44(0) 203 637 6137 to consult our experts or find us through Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
