We Want People Who Truly Care About The Welfare of Our Young People…

Our Mission Statement is…

“To engage all children in movement activities. To address the hideous dropout rates of children and to provide environments where children can play and sample various sports.”

We are keen to return to a bygone era where play and activity was not just a one off event but something that occurs naturally and spontaneously. Giving children and often their families the environment to rediscover this most basic of needs is key to your role as an Active Future Partner.

With sport being the most common movement activity there is a high focus on sport within the Active Future programme. However, much of this will be free play and child directed. One of our most celebrated programmes are the Free Play activities where children get to choose exactly what their provision looks like.

For those that wish to specialise in specific sports we have class leading programmes that people can take part in and receive specialised expert coaching in those areas.

You will cater for all abilities without prescriptive monotonous repetition of the same old coaching mantras and the children will love every second of it.

This is one of the fastest growing Franchise Networks in the UK today. 24 Territories have sold in a very short period of time so please fill out the form below and we’ll send you our extensive and informative 20+ page prospectus directly to your inbox.

Fitness Franchises

According to research published by Statista the UK market size of the wellness & fitness segment has been growing steadily & is estimated to reach £22bn by 2020. When broken down by category, the greatest increases are to be made in alternative medicine, sports equipment &  weight loss, which made up the majority of the market in past years, along with gym memberships. The growth of the market is also reflected in the number of sports and fitness occupations held in the UK, which also show a steady increase in years past. The majority of employees in the sport activities sector are between 25 and 54 years old, with slightly more men than women working in the sector.

This has also given rise to more fitness and well being franchises including franchises of gyms, workout classes, children fitness classed, weight loss group & classes. With the UK government stating that unless we change our habits that more people will become obese the need and it would seem demand for more of this type of franchise is sure to increase and become an even more potentially lucrative market.

Developing a “fit” and healthy business takes time, hard work and dedication. Also as with any business purchase or franchise get professional help & advice and know what your commitment is before you invest.
