The current and future market situation

Global trends and fitness innovations have been quickly incorporated into new offers such as online classes, virtual personal coaching, and personalized workouts, while entrepreneurs are developing apps, platforms, and intermediaries to bring new services and offerings to a very fast expanding market.


The global Weight Management market size before the Coronavirus pandemic was valued at USD$ 214.7 billion in 2016 and it was expected to grow 8.3% by 2025. According to recent analyses, approx. 30.0% of the world’s population is either obese or overweight, which poses an enormous challenge for both the developed and under-developed countries, being the main cause of this market growth.

However, due to the Coronavirus outbreak the previous projections have totally changed. The global Weight Management market is anticipated to rise at a considerable rate (8.6%) during the period 2021 - 2025. In 2021, the market was growing at a steady rate and now the market is expected to rise over previous projections.


The COVID-19 pandemic have forced many of us to remain at home for long periods, which is causing at-home wellness trends to be accelerating dramatically:

  • People are embracing digital wellness products and content;
  • COVID-19 concerns have deeply impacted health areas such as mental wellbeing, nutrition and at-home healthcare, specially for the elderly;
  • People want to feel more comfortable at home, increasing demand for home and garden wellbeing products;

With a global recession caused by the pandemic impact, stay at home trends can only strengthen. The short-term impact of quarantine measures will be transforming into long-term adoptions across numerous wellness markets. The expectation is that market segments such as digital fitness and remote health will be pushed to mass-market appeal. 


The pandemic will shift home wellness to mass market potential!

Market distribution


North America is the largest market since more than 2/3 of adults and almost 1/3 of children and young people are overweight or obese. From these, approximately 67% are trying to lose weight.


Other high-demanding market regions are Europe, Russia and North-Asia, followed by South-Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Expected income (based on my income growth)


Back in 2012 is when I started to my personal training trip. I started by spending some money trying to get fit myself first and getting ready for next steps. So, at the beginning of 2014 is when I finally decided to start Virtual Personal Trainer (for the record, I had no previous experience on any kind of online business). I got to work and soon I figured out how to get clients and how to ensure delivering incredible results in the process.

Eureka! In just a few years, I was able to 10X my previous investment, become a worldwide published author in weight loss, coaching hundreds of people through my site and programs, and doing all from the comfort of anywhere I wanted to be. In fact, for the last ten years, I have been continuously traveling around the world and living in many new countries ;)
