  • Comprehensive training program: You’ll embark on a full training program to learn step-by-step how to run a successful gym
  • 30 years of experience at your disposal: Immediate access to webinars and online resources, plus continual support from our central teams including twice-a-year business reviews
  • Extensive site-finding support: At HITIO we will support you with identifying potential sites backed by extensive data and insights into your targeted region
  • Marketing assets: You’ll be provided with complete marketing packages to support your gym’s promotion and access to all our resources which can be adapted to suit your region/country

HITIO is the international brand for sister company MUDO, a proven concept which has grown over the last 20 years to become one of Norway’s largest fitness chains with more than 30 successful sites.

What started out as small taekwondo centres has since evolved into a gym and combat sports concept for everyone - parents can workout at the same time and place as their children; members can bring friends, family or colleagues or simply train individually.
