Do you want to change people's lives positively by helping them become fitter and healthier? All that in 20 minutes a week? fit20 is a gamechanger and we seek people who want to make an impact on the lives of clients, their staff and themselves! Our training protocol already allows clients to be trained by appointment, whilst maintaining 2m distance from your Personal Trainer. Your customers are the 85% of people that aren’t “gym bunnies”, either because they don’t like gyms, are too busy, or don’t want to put themselves at risk in a crowded environment. How’s that for a competitive advantage?

Our unique training method is science-based and backed by results over 10 years. Clients train weekly, by appointment and always with a personal trainer to ensure the clients get stronger and healthier each week. fit20 is innovative, unique, and is looking for people who dare to be different. Do you dream of your own company but with the assurance of a proven international model so that you don’t have to make all beginner’s mistakes yourself?

Eleanor fit20 client

“I have lost weight, toned up, have a lot more strength when walking and have increased my confidence and overall body strength. My breathing is better, my Osteoporosis has improved – feel I have stronger bones – and have more confidence in my ability to exercise. I feel far more balanced and stable than before and I look and feel slimmer! I have found fit20 addictive and do not miss any sessions. I previously used to get back ache, though not anymore! I have less stiffness – particularly after long drives, and less fatigue - especially after hiking.”

Eleanor, fit20 client 

Who are we looking for? 

fit20 is looking for energetic and enterprising people who want to build a successful fitness business and are passionate about helping people improve their health and fitness. We have options to own single or multiple studios or develop an entire territory. A growing number of fit20 franchisees own more than one studio.

The investment

The initial franchise fee for a single studio starts at £15,000 and larger areas are available from £50,000 for territory developers, other costs are involved. You can choose to lease or purchase equipment, and the fit-out costs for your new studio will influence your total start-up expense. Floor space requirement of only 600sq feet allows you to minimise rental overheads. Government led funding is available for up to 75% of the cost.

What’s next?

If you’re passionate about health and fitness, are an entrepreneur and want to be your own boss, then fit20 personal fitness franchise could be right for you. Fill in the details form and we will be in touch with more information shortly.

“The fact that my customers come back week after week is my biggest compliment”

“The fact that my clients come back week after week is my biggest compliment” It shows my clients value the service I provide. I have always been active in sports, but I have never felt as strong as I do now - because of my fit20 training. There is a tremendous body of knowledge at fit20 and I really enjoy learning more to grow as a franchise owner and as a trainer.
