When most people think of June, they think of the beginning of summer, the end of the school year, wedding season and of course, the celebration of Father’s Day. However, June was also Men’s Health Month, and any man entrenched in middle age can assure you that the older you get, the more you think about your health.

Men’s Health Month focused on heightening awareness of preventable health problems and promoting early detection, but it’s also a great opportunity for men everywhere to take stock of their personal well being and make the necessary changes to lead a happy, healthy life.

Franchise consultants specialize in change. The kind of change that comes when a longtime executive in corporate America decides they’re ready to go out on their own and become an entrepreneur. With more than 3,000 franchise opportunities available today, there are plenty to choose from in the field of men’s health.

If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur with a life goal of running a business that helps men be their best, consider these five popular franchises:

Title Boxing Club

For people looking to add some punch to their workouts, Title Boxing Club offers total body boxing and kickboxing workouts they say help people burn up to 1,000 calories per hour. Listed ninth on Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchise List of 2014, Title Boxing Club now boasts more than 400 locations nationwide.

Franchisees are expected to be focused on fitness, not fighting. For the entrepreneur looking to take strong business acumen into the fitness world, Title Boxing Club is a knockout!

Cycle Bar

The first (and only) indoor cycling franchise, Cycle Bar works to create the ultimate indoor cycling experience by powering up each class with high-energy music, video graphics and rider specific performance data in their high-tech Cycle Theatre. Cycle Bar looks for franchisees that want to take a hands-on approach to franchise management while also playing an active role in their community.

Menchies Frozen Yogurt

Without a doubt, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt features plenty of rich offerings to turn a healthy treat into decadent delight. Frozen yogurt cuts the fat of regular ice cream in half, and Menchie’s product line boasts gluten-free, vegan and no high fructose corn syrup options along with natural toppings like spices, fruits and nuts. Frozen yogurt is a thriving, $8 billion industry, and Menchie’s is the largest selfserve yogurt franchise in the world.

Hand and Stone

Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa encourages men to consider massage as a healthy lifestyle choice. Why? According to the Mayo Clinic, “studies …demonstrate that {massage} is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.”

The health and personal care market is booming; the sector features the second highest number of franchises in Entrepreneur’s 36th Annual Franchise 500. While the growth in this sector is terrific, most of the day spa market is still fragmented with very few national names, giving Hand and Stone a great advantage in brand recognition.

18/8 Fine Men’s Salon

After a workout, a healthy treat and a great massage, a little bit of high-quality grooming is perfect to make a healthy man look as good as he feels. 18/8 Fine Men’s Salon (interestingly named after the combination of 18% chromium and 8% nickel to give stainless steel its better look and performance) is looking to fill a void in the personal care market by offering the perfect salon for men. They boast professional staff members that are highly educated in men’s styles, trends and grooming products, along with the requisite salon services previously only marketed to women. 18/8 is perfect for people who have experience leading small teams with a focus on providing service and hospitality.
