The focus on the health and wellness of children has become more of a priority for parents as concerns grow about the increase in childhood obesity rates and what those mean for a child's long-term health. As you can see from the statistics we've shared on this page, this concern isn't going away anytime soon.
More and more parents want to help their kids now, as well as instill a lifelong interest in exercise, so their kids learn to embrace regular physical activity. Now is a great time to establish your own successful franchise promoting the physical and emotional well-being of children through improved physical fitness.
The percentage of children with obesity in the United States has more than tripled since the 1970s.

There are as many types of children’s fitness franchises as there are physical activities. One route is franchises that offer a range of youth sports leagues, tournaments, camps, clinics and other special events in the areas of flag football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse and baseball/softball. There are also businesses geared toward younger children that blend physical activity with music, dance or tumbling. Bounce and trampoline focused centers are another franchise option, as are children-centered martial arts and bootcamp-style programs.
Ask any parent and they will tell you they want the best for their kids. For many, that desire is centered on better health. A franchise opportunity that provides parents with the opportunity to improve their children’s physical well-being can be a golden opportunity to not only succeed in business, but also to do so while offering a valuable and feel-good service. If you have the interest and desire to make a real difference, long term, in the life of a child, a kid-focused fitness franchise is a great business model to consider.
