GCW INSTRUCTED BY GYM BRAND ENERGIE FITNESS TO SECURE 40 NEW UK SITES

April 4, 2019

Retail property consultancy, GCW, is advising énergie Fitness on an ambitious expansion drive. One of the fastest growing fitness franchises in the UK intends to extend its reach by opening 40 additional fitness centres. énergie Fitness ranks number 2 in the Elite Franchise Top 100 UK Franchises for 2019 and has secured seven new openings in the last three months. With a long line of franchisees waiting in the wings, GCW is on the search for additional UK sites.

énergie Fitness operates more than 100 fitness clubs in the UK, Ireland and Eastern Europe. It is renowned for offering a compelling combination of state-of-the-art facilities with flexible low-cost pricing. Boasting in excess of 120,000 members and annual turnover of £26m, the business is on an impressive growth trajectory and intends to make further in-roads into the UK market.

Since the beginning of 2019, the fitness and well-being brand has opened new clubs in Bridgwater, Skipton, Stockton, Chelmsford, Bognor Regis, Solihull and Hyde.

GCW’s remit is to secure a pipeline of units close to transport hubs in prominent locations with a catchment of at least 25,000 people. The aim is to select buildings ranging between 5,000 to 7,500 sq ft. They will ideally be open plan on one level with a minimum ceiling height of 3 metres.

Other criteria include 10 to 20-year leases, D2 planning consent and the potential for 24-hour opening. Appropriate properties might include new build, warehouses, showrooms, retail or office buildings.

GCW Director, Simon Horner, said: “énergie Fitness is a growing brand and one which is attracting significant interest from franchisees. We are working hard to identify sites for further expansion across the UK and have been encouraged by recent openings. We look forward to engaging with landlords to explore further franchise opportunities.”
