The Shredquarters Is The Fastest Growing Functional Fitness Gym In The UK

Join a new homegrown British gym franchise that has continued to sell franchises through lockdown, with all franchisees not only meeting but exceeding their profit and growth plan.

In 2016, The Shredquarters was born out of a desire to create a group fitness facility that was accessible to everyone. It quickly grew to 350+ members, winning awards in the local fitness industry and gaining a reputation in Berkshire for being THE place to train if you are interested in functional fitness. Seeing the demand for more facilities like The Shredquarters, we decided to franchise the brand and have experienced rapid growth in the last 12 months. We now have locations across the south of England and, in January, opened our first London location.

Adam - Shredquarters

"We set out to be the best; to forge deeper more profitable and longer relationships with our members. We focus on running structured classes with a high trainer-member ratio, which keeps people engaged so they value their time at their local Shredquarters."

Adam, Founder of Shredquarters

Are you passionate about health and industry? With our low-cost, inclusive and lucrative business model with the potential for multi-site growth, this is a chance for you to combine both.

The high intensity' Shred Sessions' are a trademark, mixing strength and cardio to burn fat and build up fitness. 'Commando Classes' include Olympic barbell lifting style classes focused entirely on resistance-based weight training for gaining strength, muscle and definition. We also have 'Core/Yoga' classes that improve stability and flexibility, while a separate 'Shred Beginners' class centres on form and technique, making it a great starting point for anyone with little or no gym experience.

We have also recently added full online service and outdoor boot camps so that both during and post-COVID, we have a complete exercise platform to meet everybody's needs.

Investment & Returns

With The Shredquarters, you can expect to turnover £350,000 - £400,000 annually with an expected profit in excess of £100,000.


Shredquarters has so far established all its franchises for a maximum of £100,000 and up to 50% financing is available, subject to status.

You're free to choose to begin as a trainer or employ trainers so you can focus on the business side of your franchise. This set-up is also excellent for couples.

Whatever your skill set, we can guide you in preparing a detailed business plan and finding the necessary investment and your expected returns. Finding your premises is the most crucial factor in the set-up cost/timescales, but we will assist with this as well.

Multiple income streams are available to you from your members and weekly subscriptions, meaning you need far less working capital than a traditional model to grow your gym.

Nisha & Karen, Shredquarters Twyford

The Key Elements For Success


You don't need gym class running experience to succeed with us. All that's required is the ability to communicate, commercial astuteness and a passion for health and fitness from day one!

The right site is essential for this business. Every territory is different, so we will help you locate suitable premises for your first Shredquarters.

Please remember that this part of the process can affect the start-up timeline, so don't worry about meeting some pre-fixed schedule. Whatever works for you works for us. Being in a franchise means being the boss of your business but never being alone.

"It has been an incredible experience so far. From the moment we met Adam, Darrell and the SQ team they have been with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have done it without them; from finding the property, fitting it out, generating new member leads and so much more! Their support and experience have been invaluable and we are already exceeding projections. It was not only half the price of the nearest competitor but it was also fully transparent. I know choosing SQ is the best decision we could have made to open our own gym"
