Founded in 2003 and now with over 100 UK clubs, énergie Fitness is a low-cost gym franchise that provides individuals with online memberships from just £14.99 a month.
Appealing to beginners through to advanced gym users, énergie Fitness offers members access to modern cardio and resistance equipment, a number of different fitness classes, free weights and the brand’s own high intensity circuit training, called thé YARD.
Experienced staff and personal trainers are always on hand to welcome and assist members during their workouts.

énergie Fitness is an associate member of the British Franchise Association.
This company says investors receive a “comprehensive gym franchise package” that has been designed to provide franchisees with everything they need to establish and grow a fitness franchise under the énergie Fitness brand name.
While no fitness industry experience is necessary to become an énergie Fitness franchisee, candidates must be hard-working, entrepreneurial, possess good communication skills, be able to deliver excellent customer service and have the ability to adhere to a tried-and-tested method of doing business.
Master franchise opportunities - where investors are responsible for delivering the énergie Fitness experience for a whole country or region - are available outside the UK.
The company has franchise opportunities available throughout the UK and abroad.
Not only is énergie Fitness a recognised name within the fitness industry, which has proven its business model works around the UK, it’s among the low-cost operators that are benefiting from the budget gym boom, allowing the company to attract a wide range of consumers because of its affordable offering.
Even with nearly 10m people going to the gym on a regular basis and over 7,000 gyms in the UK, the fitness sector as a whole, which was valued at just under £5bn in the 2018 State of the UK Fitness Industry report, continues to grow.
The main driving force behind this growth are brands such as énergie Fitness, which provide low-cost access to modern gyms.
Take into account énergie Fitness’ track record of attracting significant numbers of members to clubs during their pre-launch phase and the way membership payment is structured to ensure health cash flow (it’s paid on a monthly basis) and it’s easy to see why this franchise is an attractive proposition for people wanting to start their own business with the backing of an established franchisor.
The company has offices in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire; Dublin, Ireland; and Milngavie, Scotland.
All énergie Fitness franchisees complete a three-day management course that covers all the aspects they need to know about running a successful gym franchise.
Franchisees’ staff are given training on an initial and ongoing basis.
Support is delivered by énergie Fitness’ 35-plus strong central operations team, who assist with compiling a business plan and obtaining funding, selecting a suitable club site and coordinating national marketing and PR activity.
Franchisees also have access to one of énergie Fitness franchisee relationship managers, as well as the énergie helpdesk, which provides telephone support.
The company’s pre-sales team ensure franchisees get off to a flying start by signing up members before a club has opened. In the past, the pre-sales team has helped clubs open with 1,000-plus paying members, meaning income is guaranteed from day one of trading.
Also included as part of the support package for franchisees are supplier discounts on anything from gym equipment and promotional materials to software systems for managing members.
Franchisees receive a detailed operations manual, which is a reference guide to the range of systems and procedures necessary to run an énergie Fitness franchise in an efficient manner.
énergie Fitness says the terms of its franchise agreement will be discussed in depth with prospective franchisees during the recruitment process and vary from candidate to candidate.
Submit your details on this page and énergie Fitness will provide you with further information via its comprehensive information pack.
All prospective franchisees are invited to attend one of the company’s discovery days where they can meet the team behind the business and find out more about the opportunity.
énergie Fitness then recommends candidates complete thorough research into the franchise and the sector it operates in. As part of this process, the company allows potential investors to visit one of its established franchises and talk to current franchisees.
Following this, an interview is arranged where you can ask any questions you have about the business. This meeting allows énergie Fitness to assess your suitability to join the franchise network.
An application form and deposit payment needs to be submitted at this stage. Credit checks and verification of personal references will be carried out by énergie Fitness.
Once an application has been approved, a franchise agreement will be provided to review and sign and the remainder of the franchise fee will be paid.
It’s at this point that the start of your career as an énergie Fitness franchisee begins.
