With the ongoing problems of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease becoming more prevalent in American society, many have begun to pursue healthier lifestyles.  Fitness and nutrition businesses have seen staggering increases in popularity over the last decade or so.  This has meant exponential growth for those companies that target health conscious individuals.

The Healthy Alternatives

Local health-food restaurants such as Native Foods, a Palm Springs, California-based vegan restaurant, have seen an increasing influx of customers.  Native Foods not only caters to those who for one reason or another have chosen a vegan lifestyle, but it also markets itself as an alternative for the health conscious restaurateur.  With a large segment of the population now turning to healthy dining alternatives, Native Foods has been able to greatly expand its operations in the last 5 years.

Getting Fit

Fitness franchises have been growing steadily over the last 2 years.  It’s no surprise.  With more and more of the population aging, a growing number of individuals are choosing gym memberships and personal trainers to help them maintain their health.  Planet Fitness, a New Hampshire-based fitness franchise, recently secured $40 million from GE Capital to help fund their continued growth.

  1. Growing up as a male in America , society has conditioned males to eat lots of meat, beer , and obsess about sports ; when I switched to a vegetarian approach , and broke free from that backwards lifestyle , my health and life have so much more meaning 🙂

    1. Great to hear! Luckily there are an increasing number of businesses in America that are catering to the needs of vegetarians like yourself. Thanks for reading and thank you for the comment.
