OWN A GYM WITH THE UK’S #1 FITNESS FRANCHISE

At énergie Fitness, we’ve been helping people build successful gyms that deliver exceptional member experiences since 2003.

Whether you want a lifestyle business or are looking for a scalable investment opportunity, we’re here to help you achieve your goals.

From signature training concepts to developing our new multi-channel fitness offering, our franchisees benefit from a business model that’s constantly evolving and is always ahead of industry trends.

Whether you begin with a single site licence and open new sites subsequently, or opt for our multi-unit franchise package, you'll receive expert support and operate a business at the cutting edge of the industry.

The low-cost fitness sector has delivered consistent growth for 10 years and has no signs of slowing down. As the only UK franchise in this sector, you’ll be perfectly positioned to take full advantage.

We have opportunities across the UK, please contact us to find out more about our opportunity and the requirements for becoming an energie Fitness partner.

Our key USP’s

  • A choice of single club or multi-site investment routes to suit your business growth objectives
  • Multi award-winning franchise support package including training, ops support and business planning
  • On-plan profitability in month 4 after opening* and potential to achieve a business sale value between £500k-£1.2m in 5 years
  • Highly experienced UK-based franchise team who are on hand to support you throughout your journey
  • Operates in the low-cost fitness sector which is the only segment of the market that’s growing
  • TrustPilot member rating of ‘Excellent’ from over 10,000 reviews
  • 3 consecutive Top 10 rankings in the Elite Franchise Top 100 UK Franchises 2019-2021, securing our place as the #1 Fitness Franchise in the UK.

“The clubs’ performances have been a great success. In our first full year of trading at Hoddesdon we posted a £178k profit which was a massive success for us. In essence, Hoddesdon funded our second site and we’ll be very happy if Palmers Green performs just as well.

One of the great things about the énergie franchise is the flexibility. Our Club Managers are able to run the clubs themselves and can develop within énergie’s support framework.”
Jo and Peter Gunter, énergie Fitness Hoddesdon and Palmers Green (Former teacher and plumbing business owner)

The health and fitness market – the key statistics you need to know

The health and fitness sector has experienced positive growth for a number of years, and now more people than ever before are making their health and fitness a priority.

All of the key industry reports and statistics show that it is the affordable, low-cost sector of the market that is responsible for driving this growth. énergie is the only fitness franchisor to operate in the low-cost / budget sector of the market with one of the most accessible and affordable membership offers available.  This enables our franchisees to attract the widest possible range of members, from savvy gym users to first timers and everyone in-between.

Where we excel is in delivering an unrivalled gym experience that makes our price seem unbelievable. We combine state-of-the-art exercise equipment, first-class fitness facilities, innovative signature training concepts, flexible membership options and world class customer service.

The result is that on a purely gym-based experience, énergie fitness goes head-to-head with even the most premium of health and fitness clubs. It's a winning formula, and one of the reasons why we are the top-rated gym brand in the UK on Trustpilot, with a rating of "Excellent" and a TrustScore of 4.5/5 based on over 11,700 verified reviews.

The best possible team in your corner every step of the way

With almost 20 years in health and fitness franchising, we’ve developed one of the most comprehensive franchise support packages on the market to help franchisees maximise their potential.

We’re also the only franchisor to offer business mentorship as part of our multi-site franchise package via our Mastermind Programme. The programme is led by our in-house leadership experts, who combined have built and sold businesses worth over £100m.

From the moment you join us as a franchisee, we’ll work with you through every step of the process. This includes:

  • Working alongside our dedicated in-house property acquisition team who will help you to find and secure the right site, assisting with lease negotiations.
  • Benefit from our relationships with industry leading suppliers for membership management, gym equipment, signage, and marketing.
  • Working with our Operations team with regular performance management, regional meetings, and an extensive on-going calendar of training.

“I researched every single gym franchise opportunity but then I met the head office team and it felt like a family. I agree with the énergie model, the investment costs were good, some of the head office team played a big part in it as well.

We turned a profit from day one and hit our original five-year business plan within our first month. Our highest turnover in a single month has been just shy of £63K and I have now opened my second site”.
Josh Waters, énergie Fitness Erith and Eltham (Former professional golfer and import / export business owner)
