Dropship Wholesalers of Fitness Products: Work From Home

dropshippers wholesale fitness equipmentDropship wholesalers of fitness products work from home, earning comfortable livings.

Are you dreaming of the day you can walk away from a job you hate and never look back? Would you love being your own boss, working your own hours and making money for yourself instead of someone else? Do you wish you could take a day off when it was perfect fishing weather and make the time up at your convenience?

If you answered yes to any or all of those questions---good news! When you work from home all of that and more besides can be yours! If you ask anyone who dropped out of the rat race to work from home, they’ll almost certainly tell you that the decision to start a home business was the smartest move they ever made.

According to SGMA’s Manufacturers Sales by Category Report (2012 edition), manufacturers' (wholesale) sales of sporting goods equipment, fitness equipment, sports apparel, athletic footwear, and sports licensed merchandise in the U.S. totaled $77.31 billion in 2011 - a 4.2% increase over 2010 when wholesale sales were $74.19 billion.

“For the most part, sales in the sports and fitness industry continue to be a mirror image of the U.S. economy,” said SGMA (Sports and Fitness Industry Association) President Tom Cove.  “As the economy begins to improve, Americans are more likely to spend more money on fitness equipment, sports gear, athletic clothing, and footwear.  Overall, sports participation remains strong and solid in the U.S. though there is room for growth.  We remain optimistic that 2012 will be a significant year of change for the sports industry as people are posed to be more active, play more and, hopefully, increase their spending on sports and fitness items.

Exercise equipment is a $4.49 billion business- up 3.4% from $4.34 billion in 2010. Treadmill sales account for 25.5% of that entire category. After treadmills, the next two largest fitness categories are elliptical machines ($1.06 billion) and exercise cycles ($484 million). Consumer/retail spending for exercise equipment accounts for just more than 75% of the entire exercise equipment category.  At the consumer level, the top three categories for sales gains were elliptical machines (up 7.1%), exercise cycles (up 5.3%), and treadmills (up 3.6%).”
