Bootcamp Pilates is a franchise based on offering Pilates classes in studio settings, with classes focused on using specialist Reformer machines, instead of mat-based sessions. This provides students with a more dynamic workout, with the benefits of being able to enjoy stretching and toning, whilst also minimising injury. The brand primarily works with a busy, professional market, providing effective classes to people who want to maximise their time.
The franchise can be a great opportunity for anyone who is passionate about sharing fitness with others, and wants to create a more intimate and personal space where they can help others enjoy better health.
The headquarters for the Bootcamp Pilates franchise are located in London.
Territories are available across the UK. There are currently six franchise studios in operation across London, and there is potential to take on new territories across the rest of the country.
To start a Bootcamp Pilates, you will need to invest between £63,000 and £82,000. This includes a franchise fee of £15,000, and an initial start up fee of £25,750. At the start of the agreement you will need to pay an initial deposit of £5,000 to confirm the territory. The total investment fee for the franchise will depend on the cost of the property, legal fees and other factors.
The brand has a close relationship with some major banks including Natwest and HSBC who can help with some financial support towards the investment cost of a franchise. Their partnership with Natwest allows franchisees to enjoy a fund-matching scheme, where the bank will match any amount that a franchisee can invest towards the total cost.
It is not absolutely necessary to be a fitness professional to start a Bootcamp Pilates franchise, but the opportunity is best suited towards people who have a strong interest in fitness and wellbeing, such as those who are personal trainers or fitness instructors. If you do intend to be a trainer with your franchise, then you must have a pre-existing REPS III certificate from a recognised organisation, before you can start training with Bootcamp Pilates.
While the business provides all of their franchisees with comprehensive training on all aspects of running the business, you should be committed to the brand, have excellent communication skills and be a strong team player.
Bootcamp Pilates offer all of their franchisees with a detailed training programme, that encompasses an initial 30 hour REPS course to register one member of your franchise as a head trainer. They are then certified to train further members of your team as your business grows.
If you are managing the franchise without being involved with training activities, you will also be supported on management skills, with comprehensive training on how to manage a business within the health and fitness sector, understanding how to recruit and manage staff effectively, as well as insight into key sales and marketing skills.
All franchise owners are also give full access to their bespoke business management software and customer relationship management platform, which allows you to manage all marketing activities effectively.
The health and fitness sector is rapidly growing across the UK, and a franchise business in this area can be a great opportunity. The industry is worth over £5 billion, with over 10.4 million members across gyms and fitness studios. With a growing number of people across all demographics interested in finding new and more innovative ways to get fit, that provide an alternative to the typical gym training model, studios and micro-boutiques offering niche fitness classes are growing in popularity. Fitness classes in particular have risen in demand, as they provide a guided and supported approach to training, and currently, the Pilates industry itself is worth over £812 million.
The Bootcamp Pilates franchise already has a positive reputation amongst their customer base, as the model of training is both dynamic and adaptable to all levels, providing an achievable and long lasting approach to fitness. Existing franchisees have been able to establish a successful franchise within the first year of the business, breaking even within six months, and looking towards opening further studios within the first 18 months of starting.
Working with the brand as a franchise also gives franchisees a significant market advantage, as the brand has a positive reputation and is trusted by existing customers. You are also provided with ample training and support throughout the lifetime of the business, to help grow and manage it as well as possible.
