About WALX

At WALX, we are looking for people who are ready to start their own business and make a real step change.

In partnership with our franchisees, we believe we can have a huge impact on the health of this nation, changing the way people exercise. By providing innovative walking-based programmes delivered by inspiring masters, coaches and guides, WALX can mutually ensure its members make a change for life. You can change your life, too, with a WALX franchise.

Why should I choose WALX?

WALX offers you a robust business model, to help you start and grow your own profitable business, through monthly membership fees, just like a health club. As you become established, you will have the opportunity to develop your business further, by incorporating more of the WALX programmes for your members.

The programmes aren’t just a walk, either - they offer so much more. Professionally designed around our various types of walks, similar to health club fitness programmes, they take into account personal fitness levels and goals. Adding interest and value keeps our members engaged in their WALX communities and coming back month after month.

The WALX franchise provides the option of being more hands-on in the early stages, if that is what you prefer. As your membership and business grow, your role can become more managerial. You can build your team of masters, coaches and guides in a structured process, where you can be delivering over 100 walks a month.

A typical WALX franchise should grow to over 1,000 members. The speed of business growth comes down to how quickly you want to build your team and your membership base.

As part of Exercise Anywhere Ltd., WALX is based on a delivery model that is already proving successful, nationwide under the Nordic Walking UK banner. WALX has a much wider appeal and the opportunities are exciting.

The franchise support team has more than 100 collective years’ experience in leisure, fitness and outdoor industries. They know how to inspire enjoyment, results and sociability when it comes to physical activity.

• You are your own boss
• You positively impact your local community to be more active
• You are part of the fastest-growing fitness trend and brand
• You can grow a substantial and sustainable business you are proud of
• You help to reduce carbon footprints, for a better tomorrow

There are already gyms on every corner, why will my new business be any different?

Despite the fitness industry being worth over £4.9bn per annum, it still only attracts 14.9 per cent of the adult population. Most people know they need to be healthier. Many have a desire to want to do more, but most people would prefer to exercise outdoors and many feel uncomfortable in a gym or a health club.

With a WALX franchise, you can engage with typically up to 20 per cent of the population in your territory, with little competition.

Your WALX franchise will inspire prospective clients who find indoor exercising unmotivating, to find true enjoyment in the incredible outdoors, at the same time, being part of a friendly community of people with a shared interest. The team has created a number of programmes and concepts unique to the WALX network. WALX offers the same great benefits of class-based exercising, personal trainers and membership, just without walls and with lots of smiles
