Bodystreet changing the shape of the nation’s fitness industry.
A proven, scalable and profitable single or multi-site opportunity
There are so many reasons why a Bodystreet fitness studio should be considered as a great business opportunity.
Obesity, year-on-year, is becoming more of a problem for the adult population in the UK. The UK Government have plans in place; such as Sport and Childhood Obesity strategy to encourage exercise participation, however, the numbers seem to still be on the increase.
Our lives seem to be getting more and more busy; leaving little time to regularly workout – even if we have the motivation. Bodystreet’s once-a-week 20-minute workout can fit into even the busiest schedule.
A typical Bodystreet studio is around 800 sq. feet. Most High Streets have property ideal to house a Bodystreet studio.
Bodystreet has been operating for over ten years. There is a proven model which means set up, launch and ongoing support are all in place to help you achieve your own business goals.
Bodystreet operate micro-fitness studios where members receive personal instruction from our highly trained team. By using Bodystreet’s unique once-a-week workout programme, which incorporates using EMS technology, our members achieve workouts equivalent to attending two to three a personal training session a week in a conventional gym.
In the last 10 years Bodystreet has grown from a single studio in Munich to approaching 300 studios across Germany, Austria, Italy and now the UK. Our clients now train collectively around 140,000 times per month – and this is growing year-on-year.
Be part of the UK’s multi-million pound fitness industry – which is continuing to grow.
The UK fitness industry continues to see year on year growth – predicted to be worth around £8 billion this year; with industry experts predicting further increases in the years to come. Whilst the number of gym members have increased year-on-year, there is a huge group of people that simply don’t have the time or motivation to go to ‘the gym’. In a recent survey 52% of responders stated that the main reason why they didn’t exercise regularly was lack of time. Which is where Bodystreet comes to the fore. Our highly effective 20-minute, once-a-week exercise programme means that anyone, even the most time starved individual, can achieve their fitness goals.
As Europe’s leading EMS micro-fitness studios, Bodystreet can help you start and grow a proven and genuinely profitable business in your local area. To get an idea of the potential of a Bodystreet business opportunity simply research the average fee a personal trainer would charge in your area for an hour of personal training. That gives you an idea about the level of fee you can expect to charge your members on a weekly basis. The average Bodystreet franchisee has 150 members.

This same system is utilised within the UK studios – the system is tried, tested and works. Bodystreet was awarded BFA (British Franchise Association) membership this year.

Refreshingly, this business has very controllable overheads; so, there are no hidden costs – in fact as membership levels grow there are few additional costs needed to operate the business. Meaning greater rewards – profit – for the studio owner.

The Bodystreet business has been developed to achieve two aims; to provide you, and your talent team, with a good income level to fund current lifestyle needs and to enable you to grow an asset to provide you with a long-term return on your investment.
As with all businesses income can vary, however at Bodystreet has been operating for over ten years; with franchisees for nearly all of that time. This means we have robust expectation models for you to review.
As a successful franchisee, you can expect to achieve great rewards – not just financial. A good studio should generate profit in year one – so long as you follow our system and substantial profits year two onwards. If your membership numbers continue to grow, as per our minimum averages, you should realise a turnover level of around £200,000 per annum with a profit of between £60-£100,000 per year.
The membership fees you charge your clients will vary depending on the location of your studio – as property rents and team member salaries vary. Because we have such a depth of experience within Bodystreet; we can help you understand the costs within your own business plan before you even consider joining and becoming the next Bodystreet franchisee.
