Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Obesity and weight gain have always been major concerns regarding the health and fitness of individuals; today, it has reached the level of an epidemic. Increasing obesity rate and increasing levels of awareness amongst calorie-conscious consumers in North America have opened new avenues for the weight management industry. The North American weight loss/obesity management market was worth $104 billion in 2012.

The North America weight management market witnesses a growing preference for low-calorie diet food and beverages and slimmer waters/natural mineral salt drinks. With the introduction of technologically advanced and highly sophisticated fitness equipment, the use of cardiovascular and strength training equipment is on a rise. However, factors like availability of low-cost alternatives, adoption of deceptive marketing strategies, and high cost of customized services are hindering growth.
