This week saw Australian gym chain, Plus Fitness 24/7 announce the opening of it’s first gym in Singapore, making it the fourth country for the gym chain to establish in.
Recently appointed Plus Fitness Singapore Master Franchisee’s Darryl and Amanda Ayris, plan to establish 25 gyms in the next 3 years with 9 Franchise Territories already sold in Singapore.
When asked what drove the decision to form a partnership with Plus Fitness, Master Franchisee Darryl Ayris said; “After 12 months researching the 24/7 worldwide gym market and completing extensive due diligence we decided on Plus Fitness as our partner into Singapore.
The fitness market in Singapore is growing rapidly with emphasis on high end state of the art equipment and clubs offering 24/7 access with functional training and classes as standard. The Plus Fitness model was able to deliver a product that was ideally positioned for the market and we are excited to be bringing the brand into Singapore”.
Darryl went on to say; “Our first and Flagship Club opens today in Toa Payoh and it will deliver at an exceptionally high level providing a world class offering to its members.” He went on to say; “Plus Fitness provides its Franchisee’s with a powerful and supportive back office that’s at the forefront of the fitness industry. The relationship we have already formed with the Plus Fitness Head Office team and the synergy in business principles will go a long way to ensuring our combined success in Singapore“.
Franchisors John Fuller and Nigel Miller, who have an extensive network of over 260 gym franchises sold across Australia, New Zealand and more recently India under a Master Franchisee arrangement, are excited to now be moving into their fourth international market.
Nigel explained; “We are pleased to have formed a partnership with Darryl and Amanda who have extensive experience in the fitness franchising space in both Australia and Singapore. Their work ethic has been unquestionable, already paying off with 9 franchise territories sold in a short period of time”.
“We believe our timing for entry into Singapore is perfect and the locations that Darryl and Amanda have earmarked for future growth will see the brand perform well. We look forward to continuing to work with Darryl and Amanda as the interest in the brand continues to grow on a daily basis and are excited for the future not just in Singapore, but the entire region”.
