F45 Training is the world’s fastest growing fitness network—but not just because we want to continue growing and expanding our business to take on new markets and opportunities. With our vision of changing lives for the better, we know that the bigger our footprint, the more people we will reach and the more lives we can transform.
Since starting in Australia five years ago, F45 Training now has over 1,700 studios worldwide and operates in more than 45 countries around the globe. This exponential growth is due in a large part to a training system that delivers real results for members, but also because each studio quickly becomes a tight-knit community of like-minded individuals. It’s a formula that doesn’t only attract new members, but keeps them coming back for more and ensures a high rate of retention.
The latest countries to join the F45 Training family are Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Kenya and Mauritius. This growth into emerging markets across the Middle East and Africa is especially exciting. It’s proof that the model doesn’t just thrive in previously established markets where health and fitness have a proven track record, but also flourishes in areas that are new to group high-intensity interval training.
These new franchise deals have taken the numbers of sites secured in the Middle East to 19 and 8 in Africa. In Europe, the brand has now opened (or has existing deals in place for) 60 locations.
Talking on the expansion, Luke Armstrong, F45 Global Sales Director, said: “We’ve worked tirelessly to create an innovative brand and proven franchise model that can operate anywhere in the world. This is a truly pivotal moment in our global expansion, and we look forward to entering even more territories in the near future."
Armstrong added that the company will look to ramp up its global expansion. As F45's march to global domination continues, there's never been a better time to join our franchisee family!
