One of the businesses in the retail sector to yield most profits is that of gyms. Although it is true that a lot of money must be invested in sports machinery and in the right facilities, nowadays any entrepreneur who decides to take the leap and open a gym will be well aware of the fact that he won't be short of customers. From young to old, everyone is involved in activities to improve their fitness, tone or strengthen the muscles to avoid injuries.
