10 Health And Beauty Franchises

1. Beat Theory Fitness

Today’s fitness conscious society wants shorter, sharper workouts with more proven, targeted results. ‘Boutique’ fitness has gained huge popularity throughout the USA, thanks to operators like Barry’s Bootcamp and Orangetheory Fitness, while today’s top fitness trends include wearable technology, body weight training, high intensity interval training, strength training and group training.

Beat Theory Fitness ticks every box. The strength and cardio interval fitness experience provides an immersive, high intensity, heart rate monitored 45-minute workout for people from all walks of life based in studio-gym facilities.

The company’s heart rate monitored concept is designed to stimulate metabolism, increase energy and provide group support and accountability. Participation activates fat burning, creates visible and lasting toning and extra calorie burn up to 36 hours post workout.

The business model not only provides customers with a technologically advanced alternative to the older gym model, but also creates a highly profitable premium concept that a franchisee can invest in and operate with low overheads and fixed costs.

What you need to know

Investment level:

approximately £170,000, depending on property size and fit-out costs, with personal liquid funds of £51,000. Assistance is provided to secure 70 per cent of total funds required, depending on franchisee’s financial circumstances.

What you get:

full training; assistance with identifying suitable locations and premises; ongoing operational, business and marketing support; package of training equipment and accessories.

2. Anytime Fitness

Anytime Fitness is the fastest growing fitness franchise business in the world and the second largest health club operator in the UK.

With more than 120 clubs and over 115,000 active members across the UK and Ireland, Anytime Fitness has been named the Top Global Franchise by Entrepreneur magazine for the last two years in a row and has clubs in over 30 countries.

Averaging more than 300 new gyms a year globally for each of the past 10 years, Anytime Fitness gyms are typically 5,000 sq ft - big enough to provide top of the range equipment, yet small enough to be positioned in locations that offer convenience to members.

During the company’s 20-year history, franchisees have chalked up a 96 per cent success rate and Anytime Fitness projects a 100 per cent return on investment within 19 months.

In the UK, Anytime Fitness clubs are typically cash positive by month seven and normally investors can recoup their initial investment and open a second club.

Franchisees are fully supported in developing their chosen locations. The senior management team is made up of recognised industry leaders and is positioned to work with ambitious franchisees and entrepreneurial club owners.

3. Bodystreet

A fitness concept that offers a solution to the growing problem of obesity, Bodystreet combines electro-muscle stimulation with easy access boutique studios and is backed by a robust system that’s enjoyed 10 years of success in Germany.

EMS is a proven method of full body workout that supercharges the effects of exercise, meaning just one 20-minute workout per week is enough - perfect for people without the time or motivation to spend hours in a gym.

Since Bodystreet has one of the most developed operating systems, you don’t need leisure or fitness industry experience to become a studio owner. And because the investment level is so low compared to traditional gyms, multi-studio ownership is common within the franchise network.

The company’s support package is the key to success with its franchisees. Each step of opening a gym is clearly documented and includes support in identifying the right premises and help with lease negotiations, writing business plans and helping you gain access to funding.
