Group fitness is more than just a blip in the radar—it’s completely changed the fitness industry and will continue to do so for years to come. F45 Training’s featured piece on Bloomberg indicates that boutique fitness is here to stay, which is especially exciting news for those looking into fitness franchise options.
The fitness industry has reached $32 billion in the U.S., and almost a quarter of adult Americans now belong to gyms. The number of gyms has increased 200% in the last three decades to serve the growing audience of gym-goers.
In recent years, interest in fitness has focused on boutique studios in particular. Boutique studios now attract 42% of gym-goers and the category has experienced 121% growth from 2013 to 2017.
In terms of trends, HIIT, wearable fitness tech and group training are the top three ranked categories, followed by personal training and training with free weights. F45 uses all of these trends in its programming, which is a big part of the brand’s success.
While these statistics are U.S.-focused, they are indicative of worldwide trends and F45 Training’s growing global presence. With more than 1,700 F45 franchises worldwide, there’s no doubt that F45 Training is poised to take over the fitness industry in countries across the world. The future of fitness is led by next-level workouts like F45’s, and the brand is dedicated to staying at the forefront of consumer trends and driving maximal individual results.
