2020 was a strange year. The pandemic changed our society. It changed us.
In 2020, we were told to stay at home. Movie theaters, restaurants, and gyms closed down. So did offices. Some of us lost our jobs, while others tried to adapt to Zoom meetings and even more emails. We didn’t go out and walk around town. We didn’t get the exercise we used to get. We ordered pizza and binge-watched Netflix. We got bored and snacked. Our habits changed.
In 2021, we decided it was time to get our lives back. We made New Year’s resolutions with an iron resolve. We got off of our couches and into our neighborhoods. Gyms opened back up. However, some of our jobs did not.
In 2021, it is time to take hold not only of your health, but of your future. Here are four reasons why it’s an ideal time to start a health and wellness business.
One: You’ll Be Your Own Boss
We know that 2020 changed us, in the same way that we see how 2021 can bring about new, healthier changes in our lives. Owning your own health and wellness business is the ideal way to stand behind your new healthy lifestyle while being your own boss and controlling your own hours.
Being a business owner means that your hours can’t be cut unless you cut them. It means that you won’t be laid off as long as you continue to work hard promoting your products and services to customers and potential customers.
Owning your own health and wellness business means you will no longer be sedentary all day long. You won’t have to sit behind a desk staring at a computer. It means that you don’t have to attend any more Zoom meetings from your family room. Being part of a fitness franchise means that you are an active part of your own success — both mentally and physically.
Two: Healthy Is In
The world came to a standstill in 2020. Today, people are excited to get moving once again. People are ready to join a gym. They’re ready to take the supplements their bodies have been missing out on. They’re ready to make this year the one in which they get in shape and become healthy.
Now is the time to take advantage of this rise in a healthy consciousness. A fitness business model is almost certain to see a successful growth this year, as people act on their need to get moving again. Customers will be seeking your business out, making marketing and financial growth a cinch.
Three: You Can Empower Others
Not only will you have the opportunity to work toward and meet your health goals, but you’ll be able to encourage others on their fitness journey. You’ll be able to make a lasting impact in people’s lives. Plus, you’ll be doing what you love every day. You can share what you’re passionate about with others, whether they’re just learning or are experienced in living a healthy lifestyle.
Four: You’ll Enjoy Job Security
Sure, right now, people are flocking to gyms and doing their best to live a healthy life. But what about five, ten, or twenty years from now?
The fitness market is always active and will be even twenty years from now. In fact, the health and fitness industry is a $30+ billion/year industry, according to International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA), and has been growing at a steady rate of 3% for the last ten years.
People are always trying to live their best life, through healthy eating and exercise. While you’ll want to stay up to date on current trends in the field and adapt to new changes, you’ll always have a market segment trying their best to live fit and healthy.
Time for a New You
If you are excited about the prospect of being your own boss and being in control of every aspect of your life, then it’s time for you to look into becoming a fitness franchise owner. Take the next step in solidifying your fitness goals by being part of a well-established, highly successful fitness organization. You can set your own hours and plan your day around your new healthy lifestyle.
If you spent too much of 2020 on the couch… if you made a New Year’s resolution that involved health or fitness… if you are ready to be active again… then a fitness franchise is for you.
