Personal Trainers in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Personal Trainers

The Personal Trainers industry has enjoyed steady growth over the past five years, fueled by rising demand for weight-loss services and greater interest in customized workout regimes. However, consumers have increasingly preferred inexpensive do-it-yourself exercise methods to industry services. Consequently, industry revenue growth has been subdued in recent years. Rising disposable income over the next five years will enable a greater share of consumers to spend on higher-priced personal training sessions. Moreover, the percentage of Americans who are overweight or obese is expected to increase over the five years to 2020, fostering greater demand for industry services.

This industry includes individuals who offer one-on-one and small-group fitness training. Personal trainers may also provide personalized diet programs. Personal trainers are typically employed by gyms, fitness studios and hospitals, or they are self-employed. Large-group instructors and professional athletic trainers are not included as part of this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
