Is starting a fitness studio a lucrative business idea

Often fitness trainers quit their job and search for a decent place to use his or her expertise or start a fitness studio. If you are a fitness enthusiast, then probably this will be your dream too. Going to a gym is absolutely different from running a gym. It will need a lot more resources than stretchable gym attire. When everything will fall in the right place, this will be the ideal way to shape your future in this particular industry.

Indian platform for fitness centre
The current statistical research, done by the authoritative bodies in India, has revealed a whopping figure of INR 4579 Crore of evaluation of the fitness industry. This impressive number will be increasing for the next five years at the CAGR of almost 27%. The promise of a brilliant future for a fitness studio is also supported by the increase in per capita income among the urban population. The figure is going to reach INR 7000 Crore within the end of this year due to the entry of international players in the potential market.

Every now and then, this potential is being tapped by the fitness centres opened in the urban hotspots. The current platform is huge in terms of the distressed urban population who are the prey of sedentary lifestyle that lacks indulgence in physical activities. The job responsibility has also increased in parallel with the disposable income. This is why majority of people are suffering from work and family related stress. Consumption of junk food from the street junctions and international outlets are adding up with the increasing health problem. In order to aid the society to get back on feet and fight against the increasing number of lifestyle disease cases, we need more fitness centres in the urban locations. The public is becoming more and more aware of health and trying to find the means of maintaining a proper lifestyle. This is where the plan for a fitness centre will fit in.
