This well established Anytime Fitness in South West London has a turnover in excess of £330k. With a current membership of over 900 people and a capacity of 1100, there is an excellent opportunity to grow this business and increase profitability even further.
The UK Health and Fitness sector had an estimated revenue of £3.1bn in 2017. The sector has seen huge growth in recent years and this looks set to continue. Anytime Fitness is widely recognised as the fastest growing fitness club franchise in the world. This business presents an excellent opportunity to take advantage of this booming fitness market.
Located in an affluent residential area, situated on the ground floor of a new retail development, with residential apartments above the club and member entrances at both ends of the site. This gym has excellent transport links, with bus and tube stations within walking distance, a secure bike rack at the rear of the premises, free parking on adjacent roads near the gym and paid town parking close by.
The current franchisee employs a team of staff including a full-time manager to run the business on a day to day basis, allocating around 5 hours a week to the club. The main role of the franchisee is to oversee the whole process and keep the business moving forward. However, by dedicating more time to the club a new franchisee could see the business grow.
The current owner is selling due to personal circumstances, as a result of family commitments they can no longer dedicate enough time to the running of the gym. With a new enthusiastic owner who can dedicate more time as well as an increase in marketing efforts the gym could see the membership numbers increase.
