Find Success as Part of a Dynamic and Ever-Evolving Leader in Innovation Across the Health & Fitness Industry
The F45 brand has exploded in popularity over the years, becoming one of the fastest-growing fitness franchises in the world since its founding in 2013. As the booming health and fitness industry continues to grow at a steady rate, it is a great time for future franchisees to join the global F45 network.
The 2019 IHRSA Global Report found that the global health and fitness industry revenue totaled $96.7 billion, with 184 million members worldwide. The industry is expected to grow at an average of 3% per year, and gyms are on pace to reach 230 million members by 2030.1 With its unique business opportunity and premium fitness experience, F45 should be poised to take advantage of this growing demand, especially when it comes to Millennial consumers. Not only is this demographic well-suited to the world of fitness franchising, but they also leverage a purchasing power of more than $1 trillion annually, accounting for 30% of all consumer spending in 2020.2
