Join the world’s premier 24/7 fitness franchise

Established in 2003, Snap Fitness has celebrated 15 years of operation, a true testament to the brand’s stability and ability to adapt to varying markets across the world. With more than 2,000 clubs in 18 countries, Snap Fitness is recognised as a leading global franchise brand by Franchise 500 magazine.

Since our London head office was established in 2015, the Snap Fitness UK Network has enjoyed four years of consistent growth with more than 70 clubs developed across the UK in 2019. We pride ourselves on a cautious and carefully researched approach to site selection ensuring we are committed for the long haul.

Why Snap Fitness?

Well the fitness industry is currently booming, with one in seven people in the UK now having a gym membership. The UK ranks number two in the world for total industry size with sales in 2019 estimated at £5.1bn.

With the rise of the low-cost fitness sector in the UK, Snap Fitness separates itself from budget competitors by offering a premium, high quality fitness experience. This includes a variety of group fitness offerings free for all members, reciprocal access to over 2000 clubs worldwide, state-of-the-art equipment, and rolling month to month memberships all for a simple fixed monthly price.

We are a value-based brand and do not need large volumes of members to ensure a good financial return, meaning our members get more attention and service from our teams, leading to better customer service and retention. 

As our brand continues to grow and more clubs open across the country, the value of our reciprocal offering increases, with members able to access multiple Snap Fitness clubs in the UK with their 24/7 global access card. Snap Fitness currently has 20+ clubs in the pipeline due to open in 2020.
