Start Your Own Weight Loss Center

How to Open a Weight Loss Center or Clinic

Imagine owning a fun and financially rewarding business helping people to lose weight and get healthy. You can when you open a weight loss center.

Opening a weight loss center (also known as a diet clinic, weight control center, or weight management clinic) lets you make a difference in people's lives while starting your own business in a recession-resistant industry.

Weight loss is literally a huge industry. In early 2009, the National Center for Health Statistics, which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, released the results of a survey that found two-thirds of the population (66.7% of Americans) are overweight or obese

It's no wonder a recent Gallup Poll found 56% of Americans (49% of men and 63% of women) said they want to lose weight.

When you open a weight loss center, you can provide a place for people to come for help with their weight loss and weight management. Plus, as the owner of a weight loss center you can have the freedom to choose the types of services and products you want to offer. 

Depending on your interests and background, you might offer individual weight loss counseling or consulting. You could organize group meetings. You could join a popular weight loss franchise or come up with your own style of counseling your clients.

If you want to offer particular services but don't have training in those areas, you might hire or partner with people who can provide those services (for example, a nutritionist, dietician, personal trainer, or medical doctor).

You can also help your clients in their weight loss efforts and increase your income by offering a variety of products for sale -- from cookbooks to nutritional supplements to motivational CDs. Imagine how much fun you could have creating your weight loss business the way you want.

If opening a weight loss center sounds like the career of your dreams, the FabJob Guide to Become a Weight Loss Center Owner is for you! In this e-book you will discover how you can successfully start your own diet or weight loss business.
