Fitness franchise opportunities

Fitness is big business in the UK, from gym memberships to grassroots sports coaching, from supplements and fitness equipment to new types of fun classes and groups. In the 12 months up to March 2017, there was an impressive 4.6% growth in the number of fitness facilities, particularly impressive if you think how tough it has been for other sectors of the UK economy. That equates to having 6,728 fitness facilities in the UK, on top of all the smaller enterprises and work from home businesses now available.

The advantages of fitness franchises

If fitness is your thing, or you want to launch a business in a sector worth an estimated £4.7 billion, franchise deals are abound. Not least as innovators in the fitness industry are often willing to share successful business models with ambitious entrepreneurs. This includes YourZone45 and Fitness Space fitness boutiques. Snap Fitness 24-7 gyms are just one of the other venue based businesses recruiting new partnerships and one of the world’s fastest growing franchisers in this sector is Anytime Fitness.

Fitness and personal trainer franchises

If you don't want to buy or rent premises, there are franchise opportunities as a personal trainer working from other people’s venues or at clients' homes. Inspiring Fitness offers personal trainer franchise deals. If you want a class or specialty related fitness franchise, then Club Pilates, Zumba and Kung Fu Schools are just some of the programmes that provide local business opportunities based in church halls, schools and leisure centres. Many of the popular fitness programmes can only be offered and marketed on a franchise arrangement, but having a parent company makes good business sense. Fitness may be a strong market, but it's also highly competitive. Starting with a well respected brand brings help with marketing, business management, training and insurance issues. It can also mean discounts on technology and equipment. Take a step in the right direction and bounce into a fitness business with a healthy chance of success, by contacting us to be matched to the right parent company.
