In a sector that is constantly growing, as performances and technology improve, its contribution is projected to only increase. Meanwhile, the UK health and fitness industry is stronger than it has ever been; with more gyms, more members, a greater market value than ever before and the highest demand for fitness instructors we’ve ever seen.
