The market potential

The UK health and wellness industry continues to grow and fit20 is perfectly positioned to exploit this growing trend. A massive 15 per cent of the UK population have a gym membership. fit20’s offering, however, appeals not only to existing gym goers and health enthusiasts, but, more importantly, also to those who don’t go to gyms, clubs or exercise classes.

fit20 is catering to the 85 per cent of the population that do not have a gym membership or do not like going to exercise classes. So, your market potential is nearly six times greater as a fit20 franchisee and there is no competition!

fit20 comes with a proven product, a track record of success with 16,000 clients, and a method backed by science, not a passing fad. This is one of the reasons fit20 has client retention rates averaging 80 per cent – fantastic for any business, let alone the fitness industry!
