About One Element

Join a growing outside fitness franchise!

Whether you are looking for a career change; a qualified personal trainer; looking for something you can own; or a new challenge, a One Element franchise provides a fantastic opportunity for you to take ownership of your life.

Not restricted by 4 walls, our franchise model has exceptional growth opportunities for low investment and entry costs.

Training and support provided

We have spent over 10 years developing and improving the One Element business model. We have therefore been able to create a comprehensive training and support framework for our franchisees.

Before launching your franchise, you will attend our in-depth training programme in Wandsworth, SW London. It is important that our franchisees fully understand the science behind our fitness programmes, the need to be consistent in providing our fitness sessions and the importance of the different types of socials we provide to members to ensure they get the most out of attending and keep coming back.

You will spend time with our trainers and members and will come away really understanding what it is like to run, and the opportunities provided by, a One Element business. Importantly you will also gain insights as to what it is like to be a One Element member.

You will receive the knowledge we have developed since 2007 which will help you make a success of your business and we will support you during your launch sessions as well as provide ongoing support as you grow your business.

You will get the benefits from running your own business but you will not be doing this on your own.

One Element's history

One element franchise outside gymIn 2006 whilst managing a gym in Clapham, SW London, One Element’s founder Tom was a regular at pre-season rugby training at Old Wimbledonians - where it was striking that the physical intensity achieved at pre-season training, the camaraderie, the genuine enjoyment and how natural it felt to be in open spaces contrasted so strongly with the sterile, silent, void of social interactions of the gym.

At the rugby club they would have 60 people training together who just loved to see their old friends, train with them, would motivate each other, enjoy banter and laugh their way through the training together. New players were welcomed and embraced and would seamlessly integrate with the longstanding members.

What’s more, over the 6-8 week period of pre-season training they lost more weight, built more lean muscle and looked healthier than those in the gym. What we know now is that not only is the fitness training more effective but the players build psychological resilience by seeing friends.

It was this training ethos and values which led to the establishment of One Element in early 2007 and upon these values on which One Element has been built, where the fitness had to be the best and the social events challenging and bonding.

At the centre of One Element is the ethos that ‘everything is positive’.
