    Yea its good idea, but there is fair amount of competition and there a lot of online resources regarding fitness for free. I have serious problem with motivation may be your website can help with that problem, thus increasing your chance of success.

    good luck with your adventure, and let us know how it goes.

    The fitness niche is a very high competition one, it may be a bit difficult to rank there.

    Also, isn't a fitness couch a contradiction in terms ;)

    It is worth trying, especially by a person who has experience in the area. Competition would be a problem, but you could still make money by making it free to join. That makes people to keep coming directly to your site instead of relying on search engine traffic

    It's a good idea. I've seen people make YouTube videos with trial fitness tips and then refer the watchers to the site/DVD for more stuff. So it comes down to YouTube promotion in that case. But of course there are plenty of ways to promote it.

    Youtube has a serious amount of hits on fitness tutorials etc. It would definitely be a good move to get your membership site appearing on a lot of this Video's being posted up these days!!

    Although there is a great deal of competition within the fitness niche (because there is a lot of money in it) you don't have to compete with everyone.

    All you nee to do is "niche" it. There are countless fitness DVD's available to buy and if you look at them you'll see they appeal to certain sections of the market such as women who want to get back in shape having just had a baby.

    All you need to do is pick a niche within the fitness sector and concentrate on that. Have you thought on twisting it a little and aiming for a niche within a certain location?

    Think local SEO :)

    there are many fitness membership sites so it might be hard to rank, but that doesn't mean you can't make money with it. First you could start with youtube and see if people are interested in your couch before launching the site
