9Round is a boutique gym franchise for savvy investors

9Round, a world class franchise with over 750 studio gyms operating globally, is set to deliver premium returns to Irish investors, having proved the concept domestically.

The gym sector is a popular segment of the health and fitness industry, and boutique studio style gyms like 9round is one of the niche markets seeing the biggest growth; whereas the traditional machine-filled gyms are fighting each other on price.

9Round is part of Lift Brands.  Lift Brands is a global player with a portfolio of franchised businesses within the health and fitness sector, including the likes of Snap Fitness. Globally this totals 6,000 units across 28 countries. This scale is only achievable through operating with absolute professionalism, ensuring everything is done to help franchisees succeed.

The team responsible for both 9Round and Snap Fitness are based in South West London and are available to provide support at every stage of your journey, from sourcing property to training your management team and promoting your units.  

We are looking for investors across the UK with the capabilities to build their own gym business.

9Round vs traditional gyms

We believe our business model has many advantages over traditional gyms and franchises in other sectors:

  • Low investment: open three 9Round units to the cost of one big-brand gym
  • Less employees = less HR headaches
  • Operational breakeven around 2-4 months per unit, full payback typically at 24 months
  • The right time to invest – boutique gyms are thriving
  • Finding PROPERTY is generally easier and quicker with smaller 1,000-1,500sq. ft units
  • People are demanding more convenience and faster, more engaging workouts in a more pleasant and immersive environment.
  • 9Round trainers get to know members by name, unlike the big volume-member gyms
  • Typical opening hours 7am – 9pm weekdays, weekends depend on location
  • Monthly subscription income with returning members rather than passing trade
