Fitness professionals, get certified in Pilates or Yoga–both fields expect growth in next five years

According to IBISWorld, the #Pilates and #Yoga Studios industries will see increased growth, driven by the rapidly rising number of health-conscious individuals in the United States. Over the next five years “industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualized rate of 10.6% to $11.0 billion, including a 7.4% rise in 2017. Profit is expected to reach 8.5% of industry revenue in 2012, as many studios have garnered higher prices for classes, particularly those sold on a course-by-course basis.”

What does this mean for individual health professionals? Qualified instructors will be in demand for the foreseeable future

In the same report, “the number of industry employees is anticipated to rise at an annualized rate of 4.6%. To provide yoga and Pilates classes tailored to particular demographics, many studios have expanded their number of contracted instructors.” It is imperative for fitness trainers and professionals to expand their expertise to capitalize on this growing trend.
