Fitness Franchises

Are you looking to bring your passion for fitness to your community? If so, we have a variety of fitness franchise opportunities that might be perfect for you. Our fitness opportunities include traditional gyms, youth sports franchises, martial arts and boxing gyms, boutique fitness franchises, training franchises and more. Find the one that’s right for you.

Own Your Own Gym

If you are looking to make a difference in the lives of your community members, owning your own gym franchise might be the way to do it. For members, gyms are a dedicated space for self-improvement. And franchisees benefit from a membership model, which creates recurring revenue month after month. There are many different types of gym franchise concepts that range from all-in-one fitness centers to boutique franchises that specialize in a specific exercise method.

Youth Sports Franchises

Empower our youth by starting a youth sports franchise. Mentorship, teambuilding and confidence are just a few of the benefits for kids who are involved in sports. Bring those benefits to your town. Thanks to low franchise start-up costs, you could quickly be on your way to opening a franchise that can have a positive impact on the children in your community.

Martial Arts and Boxing Gyms

Boxing and martial arts aren’t just for professionals in the ring anymore! It is a fitness movement that has seen an explosion in recent years. Some boxing franchises specialize – like kickboxing gyms or mixed martial arts – with franchise options for kids or adults. Check out our martial arts and boxing gym franchise opportunities and discover if one is right for you.

Boutique Fitness Franchises

Boutique fitness concepts are on the rise – customers want a fitness experience that feels specific to them. Some of our boutique fitness franchise concepts include yoga franchises, rowing franchises, stretching franchises and indoor cycling.

Because these franchise concepts are boutique, they often require less square footage than traditional gyms. This means franchisees can open up their fitness franchise with less build out and overhead costs. Boutique fitness franchises also allow franchisees to enter a fitness industry they are passionate about, whether that’s yoga and stretching or cycling.

Training Franchises

Training franchises allow customers to customize their fitness and take control of their wellness. Personal training franchises can be operated as mobile franchises, by bringing the trainer and equipment to each customer.

Fitness-Related Franchises

Fitness franchises also include franchises that support a fitness lifestyle. Cryotherapy franchises are on the rise thanks to cold therapy being used as treatment for athletes, patients post-surgery and for anyone looking to reap the benefits of cryotherapy – including decreased fatigue and healthier skin.

Fitness franchises that go beyond exercise franchises include the franchises responsible for maintaining and repairing fitness machines. Fitness machine technicians are in a B2B industry, servicing fitness facilities. If these non-facility fitness franchises appeal to you, please explore all of our options.

Our fitness franchise opportunities include traditional gyms, youth sports franchises, martial arts and boxing gyms, boutique fitness franchises, training franchises and more. Which fitness franchise is right for you?

Fitness Franchise: Initial Costs and Fees You’ll Need to Consider

Love working out? Love helping others achieve their fitness goals? A fitness franchise might be a good option for you. But before you head to the bank to get your small business loan or home equity loan, you’ll need to establish a detailed business plan to fully understand the initial cost and fees even before your grand opening.

Here is a breakdown of the costs and fees you can expect to pay when starting a fitness franchise.

Can You Open a Fitness Franchise by New Year?

You’ve finally decided on a franchise business opportunity and have chosen one in the fitness category. The New Year is just around the corner and you’re considering trying to open as soon as possible to catch the rush of business. You think that opening over the next few months is crucial to your success because you need to capture people with fitness-related New Years resolutions as soon as possible—but should you fly through opening your fitness franchise?

Franchises often take months to get up and running, especially when there’s a large gym space to be set up or you need educated and professional staff. Finding the right talent can be difficult for fitness franchisees and it takes more than a few weeks to teach a new fitness guru your franchise’s way of doing business. Researching the location, taking care of legal and licensing requirements, planning your opening, and getting accustomed to the software -- all these things can take time.
