FiiTNESS PLUS also recognized as, Health Hour Guest at FM Rainbow Drive in the year 2015, and TOP 10 BEST CORPORATE SERVICES IN INDIA by SiliconIndia magazine 2017.

The Future Outlook 

As a researcher, Suresh is up-to-date on how the health and fitness industry is growing in India and the world as well. At the end of FY2018, revenues in the Indian fitness market amounted to US$908 million. Further growth in the segment is expected at a CAGR of 9.3% between 2018 and 2022, to take the total market value to a whopping US$1,296 million in 2022. However, a fact worth noting is that a major portion of these revenues will be driven by the consumption of fitness wearables.

Simultaneously, the number of upscale fitness centers is growing at a pace similar to the rapid rise in disposable income among consumers between the ages of 20 to 45 years old. The Indian fitness industry is also helping to bring about a much-needed revolution in the country that’s triggered by the increasing number of cases of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. This is also one of the key reasons behind the sudden surge in the number of weight loss products available in the market, as well as the spike in the health club and gym memberships. Spending money on gym memberships, which was earlier perceived to be a luxury, is now becoming a way of life for several people. Furthermore, there is an increasing number of people in tier 2 and tier 3 cities looking for wellness and fitness solutions, with most men opting for muscle-building training and women for Cardiovascular and strength training.
