Top 3 Tips to a Successful Fitness Franchise
At Snap Fitness, North American franchise expansion is full steam ahead.
We’ve recently signed an agreement with current multi-unit franchisee, Jared Rodgers, to expand Snap Fitness’ presence in Saskatchewan, Canada – a deal that will bring Rodgers’ unit count to a total of five locations in just eight years. Even during the height of the pandemic, Rodgers was able to achieve great success in fitness franchising. In 2020, he was awarded the Top Club in Billable Growth for his Saskatoon gym, a distinction presented to the franchise with the largest percentage of growth in 2020.
So, what is it that makes Rodgers, and the mass of fitness franchisees, so prosperous in growing their business? Here are Snap Fitness’ top three tips for running a successful franchise:
1. Utilize Franchisor Guidance
One of the benefits of franchising is the systems and processes in place that will guide your club’s launch and continued business development. From financing, property sourcing, recruitment and training, to pre-sales, launch, ongoing growth and personal contact, Snap Fitness has the tools and tactics set up for you to achieve a return on your investment right out of the gate. Having a skilled franchise team to support your journey in fitness franchising will ensure seamless club operations so you can make a promising impact on gym members.
2. Be a Hands-On Franchisee
Another wonderful aspect of becoming a fitness franchisee is you get to be as action-oriented as you desire. At Snap Fitness, we encourage our franchise operators to bring a personalized approach to the table. We’ve found that successful fitness franchisees are leaders, cultivate genuine relationships and bring an enthusiastic energy to their club, which encourages both club members and employees. In creating an environment where everyone can thrive, your passion for changing lives through health and wellness will shine through, and we look for these same characteristics in our franchisees so they can achieve greatness in the fitness space.
3. Engage with your Local Fitness Community
Possibly one of the most important aspects of fitness franchising is engaging with the local community. Service-oriented and personable franchisees are able to make a huge difference in their members’ lives through the authentic connections they build. Snap Fitness as a brand is motivated by a “for the feeling” and a people-first approach, as this is how our most driven franchisees encourage more people to discover their desire for an active lifestyle.
