The fitness and amateur sports industry has exploded in popularity. That market includes 44 million kids between the ages of five and 18 playing sports each year, according to the National Council of Youth Sports. Also, it includes roughly 55 million fitness club members in the United States, who use any one of the 36, fitness clubs across the country, according to Statista research. The SFIA State of the Industry Report reveals that the sporting goods sector is seeing decline in the number of core team sports participation, though that trend seemed to be offset by an uptick in total team sports participation, including casual participation. SFIA predicts that youth sports participation will make up the foundation of the industry over the next 50 years. Even that trend is being disrupted. Mike Liguzinski, divisional president at Specialty Human Services, a division of Great American Insurance Group, says the trend in fitness centers is moving away from chains and toward boutique centers.
