The UK market has grown exponentially since 2010. In 2019, the industry generated £5bn+ in revenue - with 1 in 7 people having a gym membership.

Snap Fitness offer a relatively low up-front investment, the opportunity for a fast ROI - in just 2-3 years – and a clear path to long-term, sustainable growth. 

Franchisees will have access to funding through leading lenders as well as assitance in sourcing the right location and site, the design and build of the club as well as in-house property experts. 

To become a Snap Fitness Franchisee, you will need:

  • Previous business experience
  • Passion for changing lives
  • An entrepreneurial spirit
  • Self-motivated
  • People person
