Do you love sports, fitness and motivating others?
If you’re looking for a rewarding new career which allows you to combine work and your favourite hobbies, then you should consider becoming a franchisee in the sports and fitness industry. If you’re tired of your nine-to-five routine and dream of being your own boss, then buying a sports franchise could be right for you. Since the Olympics and Paralympics athletes like Mo Farah and Ellie Simmonds have become household names and the UK has seen an increased interest in sports and fitness, especially in children and young people. The demand is out there, and these careers can change lives. Why not be a part of this and reap the benefits?
Becoming a franchisee means becoming your own boss, an appealing option for many. However, with a sports franchise, this is not just an ordinary desk job, it requires somebody with passion, energy and a range of other skills. An ideal franchisee in the sports and fitness section will possess:
- Great organisational skills
- Motivation and enthusiasm
You’ll also need to be a ‘people person’ with a passion for helping others thrive and improve their skills.
When it comes to income, you can expect a healthy wage for your hard work. The average sports club currently brings in an income of more than £40,000 per annum (Sports and Recreation Alliance), showing that the industry is ever growing.
