About RETRA FITNESS
Simply put, RETRA is a revolutionary new fitness method. It’s the result of many years of research and development. The brand uses a proven sports science methodology and has developed workouts built to suit the needs of all individuals, making them fun, fast, effective and – most importantly – affordable!
RETRA’s concept is circuit training but with the use of technology. Customers are given pre-described workouts that provide them with guidance and instruction during the circuit classes. What’s even better is that there is no need to book a time to attend – you can just walk in a join a session as the technology and instructor will guide you.
What makes RETRA FITNESS stand out from its competitors?
We live in a time when they want more than just a personal trainer. Boutique fitness concepts are booming. However, sadly, it’s clear these boutique studios are not accessible to everyone and many people are excluded. These boutiques tend to be either closed-door member clubs (which are far too elitist and/or intimidating), or they’re simply just not affordable.
Every detail of RETRA FITNESS has been meticulously selected by the in-house team design team to give a boutique feel with a high-quality finish to each site. Chris Pan, the owner and franchisor, adds: “We are searching for good locations with sites that would thrive, and we are also trying to convert struggling independent studios into our franchises. We are willing to co-invest alongside them.”
