Fitness giant Belgravia Health has announced its popular Coaching Zone concept is now available as a franchise opportunity, allowing fitness entrepreneurs to take advantage of the huge growth in High Intensity Interval Training with a tried and tested formula.
For the past 1.5 years, Coaching Zone, a specialised group personal training program combining training and coaching, has been operational within many of Belgravia Health’s Genesis clubs.
The training platform allows members to choose from eight different small group workouts, each 45-minutes long and followed by a 15-minute coaching consult that is a valuable part of member retention.
The Coaching Zone has grown at a very fast rate since the concept first launched within Genesis clubs towards the end of 2016 and 29 clubs have now introduced the concept and are reporting strong uptake by members, predominantly females (73%) in their 30s (average age 34.3).
The Coaching Zone is integrated with the MYZONE heart rate monitoring system, which allows members to monitor their workout efforts both inside and outside the studio.
The model also offers online nutrition support, social events and has highly marketable sessions including the ‘Afterburn’ workout, which allows members to continue to burn fat for over a day post-workout.
The new franchise offering allows the franchisee to run the Coaching Zone as a stand-alone studio with the backing of one of the longest standing names in the fitness industry.
The fitness industry is competitive, and the strength and experience of Belgravia Health allows franchisees to leverage support and simplify the daunting task of opening a new studio said Belgravia Health CEO Ian Jensen-Muir.
“We’re very excited to offer Coaching Zone as a stand-alone studio concept to those wanting to confidently take their first step, or the next step in their fitness career, “ said Mr Jensen-Muir.
“With a growing market of high intensity group personal training studios, Coaching Zone provides a training solution for people looking for a non-intimidating and achievable training program with additional programming to accommodate them as their fitness levels grow.”
Support is provided for franchisees for payroll, accounts/accounting, billing, HR, uniforms, group buying and marketing. Coaching Zone requires a footprint of 200 – 250m2 to operate (inclusive of amenities).
Coaching Zone offers low entry start-up costs, with financing support options also available. Now is the time to secure your Coaching Zone location and begin your pathway to business ownership.
