Solan Fitness health and fitness franchise opportunity
Beginning as a small yet highly successful South East London based martial arts club in 2010, husband and wife team Rachelle Solan and Josh Ahmet opened their first gym in Orpington, Kent in 2013. They were driven by a strong and distinctive vision, to break the mould and find a middle ground between the uninspiring budget gyms and the inaccessible and intimidating atmosphere of the ‘elite’ gyms. Instead creating a stand out mid-market brand that delivers on both quality and fun. Since then Solan Fitness has grown to become a prestigious multi award winning gym, having received multiple accolades including Best Combat Zone Gym Of the year in 2016 and 17, and best Gym Team of the year 2016. Something which stems from their dedication and passion, as well as the quality of the services they offer. Solan Fitness gyms will be guaranteed to help you achieve peak fitness, all delivered in a motivating, fun, and social environment. They are now looking to expand that award winning brand across the U.K.
When you step into a Solan Gym you can be assured of a gratifying and professional experience, that is delivered in an atmosphere that doesn’t believe you have to sacrifice style to be serious about your workout. With highly trained and friendly staff, the highest quality equipment, an award-winning layout including high intensity functional zones and professional combat areas, a wide range of fitness classes, and the ambience of their luxury facilities, Solan Fitness gyms truly offer a comprehensive modern workout experience.
Solan Fitness is offering a tremendous franchise opportunity as they look to expand their brand of award winning gyms across the U.K. With the aim of creating a mainstream strength training facility niche, one whose clubs and gyms remain accessible whilst still generating elite results. They also want to encourage franchisees to put their own unique spin on their club, so that Solan Fitness can stand for offering a one of a kind experience no matter where they are.
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.
