YourZone45 was started by Chris Elms in 2003.  His aim was to make fitness fun. Chris’ first gym was in a 700 sq ft portacabin, now the studios are between 2,000 and 3,000 sq ft, with the aim of having 300 members per studio. YourZone45 describe themselves as boutique fitness studios where people can experience specially developed boot camp workouts which are geared to heart rate technology. The idea behind the workouts is to rapidly burn calories, increase the metabolism which, in turn, will result in greater fitness.

YZ45’s head office is in Colchester and it now has studios in Bingley, Braintree, Colchester and Colliers Wood.  The company launched its franchise operation in 2015 and this year is planning to open another eight studios around the UK.  It has already been announced that three of the studios will be in Greenwich, Southampton and Woking.

To support this expansion plan, YZ45 has a new marketing manager and a franchise manager.  Marketing manager, Michael Jones, has not only been a competitive swimmer, he’s also worked for Virgin Active and David Lloyd Leisure and had his own swim school.  Franchise manager, Davide Ferreira, earned his stripes working in sales and business development in various fitness environments, including Nuffield Health and Virgin Active.

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.
