Franchise

Fitness Evolution came from a team of fitness executives and gym owners who saw that the best way they could serve their customers was by changing the way facilities deliver their services. Today, with our growing network of owners and operators, we are doing exactly that.

How we shape the market.

Our vast experience in the fitness market has allowed us to build on the strengths and solve the weaknesses of the industry’s business models. We have geared our facilities toward delivery of the most amenities for the least amount of money, with a focus on the consumer’s needs.

We have combined luxurious, easy-to-navigate layouts and industry-leading entertainment with value pricing that has created what we think of as a “market reset.” Independent gym owners, who have seen erosion in their market positions, like the idea of a new brand strategy that will help them regain their market strength.

The Fitness Evolution Revolution

 Every market and every customer’s needs are different. What we know, however, is that everyone appreciates a good workout for a low monthly fee. Our executive team works with each franchisee—new and converting—to ensure they can provide the Fitness Evolution experience on their terms. If that means the equipment differs from one gym to the next, or that we don’t require you to overhaul of the facility’s look and feel from day one, we can live with that—the ultimate goal is to grow each gym by making your customers happy.

With the commitment of our franchisees, Fitness Evolution has built a culture of simplicity, value, and good health. You can be a part of this revolution. Contact us now to get the ball rolling.

Is gym ownership right for me?

Name recognition is the biggest advantage. With 75 locations in seven states, many of your customers will recognize who we are and what Fitness Evolution represents. Finding your own unique name that resonates with your clientele—and hasn’t already been scooped up by someone else—can be a huge, expensive challenge.

Let’s be up front: starting your own business won’t be easy. That said, successful business owners find their enterprises to be very rewarding, and the 40-plus owner/operators of Fitness Evolution franchises are no different. Our franchisees love the opportunity to become involved in their communities, meet new people, and navigate the challenges of running a profitable business. Our most successful owners would not have done it any other way.

What makes Fitness Evolution different from other health club franchises?

Our experience has shown that most health club franchises offer a name and not much else, despite hefty franchise fees and stringent branding requirements. Fitness Evolution has the lowest franchise fees in the industry, and we work with you hand in hand to get your new gym off the ground.

What are Fitness Evolution’s branding, equipment, and layout requirements?

 Your gym’s size should be no less than 17,000 square feet, and most of our current facilities max out at 30,000 square feet. We don’t set limits on whether you locate your gym in a mall, strip mall, or stand-alone facility, but it should stand in a high-traffic area. Fitness Evolution provides location assistance when necessary.

 

 Our comprehensive branding and style guide will help you achieve the look and feel of the Fitness Evolution that your customers will expect. You may work with our architecture and design professionals to build the proper layout of locker rooms, equipment, and class space.
