Company Information

Fitness franchiseEstablished in 2003, this year Snap Fitness celebrates 15 years of operation – a true testament to the brand’s stability and ability to adapt to varying markets across the world.

We pride ourselves on a cautious and carefully researched approach to site selection, ensuring we are committed for the long haul.

Investment Summary

Snap Fitness has a flexible investment model allowing you to choose between three different grades across the UK. The gradings are unique to the territory you are purchasing and are decided upon after careful review of the demographics and competition in your local area, with total investment from £354,000.

We understand that different regions across the country have different requirements and as such apply a more flexible and less cookie-cutter approach to designing and fitting out our clubs. This helps create unique and memorable fitness experiences in all areas that members will be wowed by.

Given Snap Fitness’s proven business model, we can provide financial assistance to qualified applicants, reducing the upfront capital investment even further. This could see up to 70%* of the estimated investment amount funded.

Gym concept

What Makes us different

Snap Fitness is a well-known fitness brand in the communities we operate in. We achieve this through careful design of our spaces which are designed to be inclusive, open plan and encourage participation and engagement amongst members and staff.

Whilst maintaining tight cost controls, we ensure the specifications of all clubs are high and have that premium feel – a ‘wow’ factor is built into every club. Premium finishings such as vanity stations with GHD products, stretch areas with stability bars, and social spaces are staples of our brand. These all combine to add high value perception to our low membership price.

With the rise of the low-cost fitness sector in the UK, Snap Fitness separates itself from budget competitors by offering a premium, high quality fitness experience – all for a fixed monthly price with rolling month to month contracts. Monthly membership fees include free boutique style classes for all members (live, virtual and functional), reciprocal access to over 2000 clubs worldwide, state-of-the-art equipment, and access to leading fitness technology including Myzone, MyFit & Fitness on Demand.
