One of the Largest and Fastest Growing
Franchisors of Fitness Centers in the U.S., now expanding in Canada and the Dominican Republic
We started our business in 1992
and refined our brand for a decade or so before franchising in 2003. We were opening our 5th store, then. We now have over 1,200 locations open across 47 US States, Canada and the Dominican Republic; with over 8.6 million members!
Most of our franchisees
do not come from a background in the fitness club industry (and we love that). Our clean and simple-to-run model (typically 13-18 employees per store, total!) attracts men and women from diverse backgrounds. From other multi-unit franchise owners and investors to doctors and attorneys; the one thing that all of our franchisees have in common? An entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to follow a time-tested and proven franchise model.
MINIMAL INVENTORY Means No Shrinkage...and, even better, no grease or food spoilage!
RELATIVELY FIXED OVERHEAD COSTS
$1.5 BILLION SYSTEM WIDE SALES*
>25% ROI IN 2ND YEAR AFTER ROYALTIES AND ADVERTISING**
