Make a Difference With a Kids Gym Franchise
Physical activity is essential for young children, now more than ever. Since the 1980s, childhood obesity rates have been steadily rising. Among children ages 2 – 5, the obesity rate is 13.9%. This is roughly 25% less than the overall youth obesity rate, but all that this means is that the poor health habits that children are developing at an early age are only getting worse as they get older.
We've seen, over the last decade or so, an increase in the amount of focus being paid to childhood obesity from both parents and the government. In 2010, former FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, served as the honorary chair for the Partnership for a Healthier America and announced her Let's Move campaign which is aiming to decrease childhood obesity, as a whole, to 5% by the year 2030.
This fully encompassing campaign includes everything from support to the parents to the provision of healthier foods in schools and more physical activity for children of all ages.
So, basically - children are struggling with obesity, Type 2 diabetes, in children, is on the rise, and to top everything off, physical education is being cut across the entire country. This is where FUN BUS steps in! The services that our mobile franchise provides, at FUN BUS, are greatly needed and it's affordable, convenient, and effective.
While FUN is the first priority on the FUN BUS, the success and fulfillment of a profitable, community focused career comes in at a close second! If you're excited about the business opportunity of our mobile franchise and want to do your part in fighting the childhood obesity epidemic, then FUN BUS could be a great opportunity for you!

“Our Let's Move! Active Schools program has allowed 9 million kids to get 60 minutes of much needed physical activity each day, and while we've made real progress, we still have a long way to go.”
"I did not expect to be doing this well, financially, when I took this on in 2013. When I took this on, our goal was to have one bus and now, 2018, I have 8 staff, an office manager, 4 busses, and 4 territories so. IT'S AMAZING!"
The age of technology has led to increased screen time and less play time - on average, children only get about 15 minutes of physical activity a day. Numerous studies have found that poor diet and physical inactivity in early life is the leading cause of obesity and adult diseases.
The only way to address this problem is by helping children develop healthy habits early on. While funding cuts to public school physical activity programs have only intensified the issue, there has been recent public outcry. Parents are desperate for suitable physical activity programs for their kids and that is where FUN BUS comes in.
FUN BUS is a kids gym franchise that is focused on bringing fun fitness programs to school children aged 18 months - 7 years. With a variety of activities, we are able to teach children the importance of physical activity at an early age.
They have so much fun that they don't even realize they're exercising! By partnering with our mobile franchise, you can do your part in fighting the growing trend of childhood obesity.
