Buy A Fitness Franchise Open 24 Hours A Day
August 10, 2010 1:49:52 PM
Today more than ever, people know it's important to be fit. Their challenge is squeezing exercise into busy lives.
This franchise opportunity provides the solution, bringing fast, convenient and affordable workouts into their neighborhoods - minutes from their doorstep - with your own compact, 24 hour state-of-the-art fitness center.
Fitness is in. The percentage of people belonging to health clubs has doubled over the past 20 years. More growth is expected, fueled by an aging Baby Boomer generation in search of eternal youth and the reality that regular exercise can prevent or control diseases that are driving health care cost relentlessly upward.
Economically, the industry has proven to be recession-proof, averaging an 8% annual growth rate since the early 1990's. The health club industry's fastest-growing segment is the so-called 24 hour express fitness segment - and we are the segment's growth-rate leader.
Our concept enables you to offer the same quality equipment and workout experience offered in traditional 'big box' health clubs - but without the crowded parking lots, long waiting lines and inflated monthly dues. Our member-friendly policies lead the industry - we do not require contracts: members pay month-to-month and may freeze their memberships when not using them.
Role of Franchisee:
This business model is developed and designed for the 'hands-off' franchisee. (10-15 hours). 75% of all owners continue jobs or careers they were in before ownership. Most franchisees start with 3 or 6 club developments, with stores run by one full-time manager. Our franchisees are attracted to the freedom and flexibility that the manager run business provides with few employees.

Have you ever wanted to own your own business? Is your company downsizing? Do you dread Monday morning and going to work at a job you are less than happy with?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to consider starting your own business. Franchising might be the easiest way for you to do that.
Franchising can offer you training, on - going support and a proven, successful way to manage your business. Those are the top two reasons the lending institutions are more likely to loan you money to start a new franchise business as opposed to buying an existing business. With franchising you do not need to have a 10 - 15 year background in whatever category you decide to pursue. In fact, most franchisors prefer that you have no background in their industry because you are easier to train “their” way.
