The $30 billion-dollar health and fitness industry in the U.S. has been growing by at least 3-4% annually for the past decade and will continue to increase year after year. 20% of the U.S. adults have health club and fitness club memberships. NPTI Florida believes this could easily double in the next 8-15 years. The industry is booming because new fitness centers are opening in every metropolitan city. Investors are also taking advantage of this opportunity to invest in new development. Our NPTI Florida graduates state that healthy people cost much less to insure, and employers and insurers have finally realized that they can trim insurance costs by incentivizing in hiring a Personal Trainer.

Personal Trainers nationwide are also seeing the demand for healthy foods and meal programs. This trend is pulling away from processed food and the increase in healthier, more natural and or organic food choices. This will allow trainers, clients, to start thinking more carefully about dietary decisions.

The U.S. consumer is also happy to have more budget-friendly fitness center options. The industry is using the term High value, low price membership clubs. These clubs are attracting trainers and members as well thanks to the cost-effective monthly fees. These clubs offer a great value for the equipment, classes, and offered amenities. NPTI owner Pat Sherman believes these clubs will continue to grow and dominate in this market place.

The current U.S. health and fitness facility count is roughly 32,000 strong. This count does not factor the thousands of boutique studios and CrossFit centers. NPTI Florida believes this number will possibly double over the next decade. This is great news for Personal Trainers nationwide. The best part of this is so many more Americans will live longer by becoming healthier.
