If you look for it (and you won’t have to look too hard) all around us right now, the world is reawakening in ways that are exciting and almost pioneering. Our entire existence has experienced a seismic shift to our way of life, and it didn’t work that WW3 to do it. Now, it depends if you’re a glass half full versus glass half empty kind of person on how you’re going to see all of this.
Still, if you’re the former, you’ll see where there is opportunity abound to start the business you’ve always wanted to, to make the career change you’ve always wanted to, or to make an income in ways that this side of just a few years ago seemed the domain of an exclusive few.
(Digital nomads, we mean you).
Just about all the major developmental and risk agencies agree that if we’re going to revitalize our national economies all over the globe again, it has to start with the regeneration of local economies and local networks of self-employed and or small to medium-sized businesses and the overall picture is looking great!
And the fitness industry is one of the sectors earmarked for big, big growth.
THE BOOM IN THE FITNESS INDUSTRY POST-PANDEMIC
If you’re a trainer, a coach, or health and fitness professional in another capacity, then the time is ripe for going it alone and turning your skill and passion into profit. The local wave of support for small and locally provided and owned service providers is massive right now. And for those in the fitness industry, in many respects, your time, too, has come. This is because there is a greater drive towards living more holistically and healthily in ways that naturally defend the body’s immune system from illness and disease.
One of the most exciting developments in this sector that are changing how health clubs have to change their business models is the rise in online fitness coaching and training. The first peaks started taking place during lockdowns worldwide. Still, now that consumers are used to training in unique and challenging ways from home, many are continuing with the practice and avoiding the often time expensive health club fees and the costs of their trainers or coaches.
This means that if you have a passion and a heart for this industry and you’re exploring avenues to make this work for you, then all we can do here – is encourage you to do that. There is a lot of competition in the market, so you’re going to want to ensure that you’re qualified and certified as highly as you can be in whatever field it is you’re going to operate in.
Suppose that as a powerlifting coach, pilates trainer, yoga instructor, personal trainer, fitness and sports coaching, or even in support industries like sports and massage therapy. In that case, there are tons of resources online to help you get to where you need to be. To launch your business, you’ll need help with your online platforms, training guides and resources, and financial management. Just be sure to make a careful plan and protect yourself through a corporate veil – especially if you plan on eventually opening up a physical location down the road).
So get busy. Get yourself best prepared to help your clients feel the burn while you count the cash!
