The Ideal Franchise Partner
We’re looking for potential owners who are passionate about improving the health of the nation and making a difference to people’s lives. With joint venture opportunities and funding support available from major banks, you could be closer than you think to owning your very own health club.
No fitness industry experience is required and many of our franchisees choose to employ an experienced Club Manager to run their club. The Club Manager oversees the day-to-day operation of the club, with the role including sales, managing staff, ensuring the club is safe and clean and greeting members and prospects.
Franchising opportunities are available across the UK and Ireland. Due to a recent change in legislation, there are now greater opportunities to open an Anytime Fitness club on the high street. The amendment to the Uses Classes Order means there are fewer planning obstacles when moving into previous retail units and allowing a quicker turnaround for facilities in sought-after, high footfall locations.
