The fitness industry has been booming in recent years, as more and more consumers are investing in their health. To start a new, expand your current, or purchase an existing gym, a business plan is of great use. DTC can assist with the development of a sound gym business plan.
Many people are becoming health conscious and participate in various sporting and physical activities to stay fit and feel young. There has been a steady growth in gym memberships over the years due to the growing middle class which has resulted in a growing fitness culture among many South Africans. Mass sporting participation such as jogging have been gaining popularity in many areas in South Africa. Due to the change in people’s attitude towards health and fitness the need for training centres and gyms is increasing. Also, the South African government has been active in trying to deal with obesity and chronic illnesses caused by being overweight. This is because urbanisation and industrialisation have been cited to be one of the causes for lack of natural movement. The fitness industry in South Africa is one of the biggest fitness industries all over the world providing a lot of income and employment opportunities for many.
