A franchise fit for the future

Snap Fitness launched in 2003 and set a new benchmark for innovation in the fitness and franchising markets.

Since then, we have continuously evolved to maintain our leading brand position, delivering top-tier support for both franchisees and members across our 1,000+ gyms in 20+ countries.

As the fitness industry grows, our mission is to continue to be known as the most inclusive fitness experience, which appeals to a broad market and delivers a profitable franchise business model.

We provide an inclusive gym experience, leveraging technology and key partnerships to provide a premium gym experience at an affordable cost which appeals to a broad audience.

Our membership base grew by 14% year on year across the same number of sites against an industry backdrop of 3.4% with the 3rd highest number of new gyms opening. (2023 The State of the UK Fitness Industry Report).

We continued to grow our memberships base across 2023 achieving +23.7%.

Our team provide you with the playbook to make opening your own gym simple. We will help with planning and securing finance, sourcing property, recruiting, and training, pre-sales and launch, as well as ongoing support at every step of the way.

Our franchisees typically see a return on their investment 3 years, enabling them to become multi-location owners at pace to build a secure investment portfolio.

Case Study

From owning a transport business to becoming a multi-unit franchisee
