Is the fitness industry poised to see exciting growth?

Yes. But in India, it is still unorganised. The potential is huge. Worldwide, personal training has been identified as one of the ten fastest growing sectors.

A lot of new players are entering the field now. What is the way forward?
Clearly, small people will not survive simply because they are not professional enough. Clients now want educated service. It's a niche industry and very result-oriented. You have to have passion. Otherwise, you can't be in the industry.

How is the remuneration for professionals?
At the entry level, you start with Rs 7,000 to Rs 10,000 at our centres. Some of the personal trainers and gym managers make Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000 a month.
