Welcome to Franchise Friday, a weekly showcase of unique franchise system. It’s not always about what’s “hot” in franchising but more so about what provides unique opportunities that are a good fit for you. We want to help bring light to those franchise systems who set themselves apart to help educate those who are considering buying a franchise.
This week’s Franchise Friday spotlight goes to Fit Body Boot Camp, a fitness center franchise that specializes in simplified workout plans. The business was founded in 2009 and began franchising in 2011. Over the last seven years, their system has steadily grown to over 300 locations in the US and 40 locations outside the US. What sets this system apart from other fitness franchises is that it is exceptionally budget-friendly. Fitness centers often require heavy buildout costs and expensive equipment to furnish their facilities, but Fit Body boasts about their simplified buildout that only requires a matted floor and some basic weights that require minimal maintenance and cost. Additionally, instead of charging a monthly percentage for royalties, they operate under a flat-fee system which designates a specific number that franchisees pay out each month that never fluctuates based on profit. The franchise founder, Bedros Keuilian, modeled their system with three goals in mind: to keep it simple yet elegant in design, to provide effective fitness results, and to be highly profitable. This system could offer a great opportunity for potential franchisees interested in the fitness industry who like to keep their daily operations simple and structured.
We hope you enjoyed learning about this unique franchising opportunity! If you would like to learn more about their system, head over to Fit Body’s franchising website. And, of course, before you buy a franchise, make sure it is a great fit for you, it is a wise investment, and you have vetted the system through an experienced franchise professional.
