On March 20th, FIC successfully hosted a Canadian Forum to a full room, they were treated to a panel of industry experts speaking about the rising number of fitness clubs in Canada.
In recent years there has been an increase in the number of U.S. fitness chains and franchises to enter Canada. Fitness businesses including LA Fitness, Anytime Fitness, Gold’s Gym, and Snap Fitness have been opening across Canada. This expansion into Canada is seen as both an important business move as well as an economic one. Guest speaker, Rick Caro, Founder, Past President, and Director of IHRSA was able to bring forward the likelihood of success that clubs have for a variety of club types and their probability of entering Canada.
