Franchise Info

paragon gym


As a Paragon Gym owner you will take advantage of a gap in gym sector allowing you to build a substantial business with a growing loyal membership.  A Paragon Gym fills the gap between the large commercial gyms, where selling anything from sportswear to coffee is just as important to them as their membership, and the ‘backstreet’ operations where building muscle is often the only aim.

Paragon operates as an Aesthetics Gym offering the opportunity for members to participate in a wide range of fitness and  exercise disciplines promoting a more balanced and active lifestyle. Having built a successful sustainable business model we are excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to join the Paragon Brand and take advantage of a business sector that has not only shown historic growth but one that continues to grow.

Whether you are looking for a single outlet, multiple sites or if you are an existing gym owner and wish to take advantage of our brand and expertise in attracting and retaining members then we would be interested in talking to you.

What Separates Us From the ‘Pack’  

  • The range of Health/Fitness activities available to include: Bodybuilding, cardiovascular training, mobility, strength & conditioning, HIT, cross fit, combat sports, MMA and Boxing.
  • Our equipment: the widest range and the highest quality available
  • The atmosphere: Paragon membership is equally appealing to both females and males because of the atmosphere that we create, welcoming and friendly making those who enter the gym know that they are more than just gym members 
  • Our skill across the social media platforms – a major marketing tool and a magnet for membership

People skills are a must as your business relies on promoting good relationships with your clients. A previous business background and a basic understanding of Profit & Loss and Cashflow whilst an advantage is not a necessity as our training and support are there to assist and guide you.

Franchisor Interview
Interview with Ty Clarke, Paragon Gym Franchisor

Ty Clarke’s passion for fitness first started from a very young age. “I started training because I suffered a lot with my self-confidence as throughout my adolescent years, I was a lot smaller than most of my contemporaries. I became obsessed with bettering myself which came from having a sporting background. I was often told I was ‘too weak’ or ‘too small’ to play my chosen sport. In 2020, during the Pandemic, I had the opportunity to purchase Paragon Gym and I have not looked back since.”
