the more you sub niche it down the less competition there is. As an affiliate, most people aren't teaching to find a unique selling point, but you can still do it and promote other people's products.
Was just asked this yesterday by a client. one key area to focus on is to get a clear Idea of exactly who you are and what you bring that is unique to the niche. Why are you in the niche? what can you offer that others aren't? if you truly have a passion for this niche, then you can really do well. most people are just in it for the money and don't care enough to really do the reslarch into finding their own unique position in the niche.
ONCE you have your unique perspecive, find your ideal customer and what you have to share with them that they aren't getting already.
Finding a USP is essential to survive in a really competetive niche like fitness. Although it might seem flooded, new people are coming out and making it work every day. you can too.
I really recommend following this article from my friend Steve Scott on how to define your ideal customer...

Do not think of whether that niche is over saturated or not. You should know that all niches/topics online are over saturated or almost over saturated. So instead of thinking that way, you can pick a general niche and sub-categorize this niche into smaller niches until you reached a super niche that you can easily promote and rank your keywords in SERPs.
I hope that helps.

It's like network marketing companies there are a million of them out there but they are all in business and people are using their products. You might say it is competitive but it's obviously enough money to go around.
Even if you do something less competitive and you don't really know what you are doing or how to do it do you really think you can be successful with it?

Also do a lot of Sociol commenting on fitness so google will and your vistors will come to you when your keywords are put in search engines. Health and fitness is a great field to get in at the moment as google is and will be taking your presence on sociol media to rank you.
Thanks for your comments if I do go with fitness I will break it down to a niche inside a niche, my first site was a weight loss site did not do well howeverit may have been to broad as James had suggested thanks Scott
