Snap Fitness is owned and operated by wellness franchise organisation, Lift Brands. Since 2003 we have built a global network of 1,000+ Snap Fitness clubs in 20+ countries with more than a million members.
We opened our first club in the UK in 2012 are now 75 strong with a further 5 due to open in 2021, and more in the pipeline for 2022. We pride ourselves on a carefully researched approach to site selection ensuring sustainability and growth.
With the rise of the low-cost fitness sector in the UK, we separate ourselves from competitors by offering a premium, high quality fitness experience. We offer members 24/7 offering functional, cardio, strength and group and personal training, and each location uses advanced industry technologies and high-quality fitness equipment, allowing members to work out to their own schedule.
The function experience is backed by strong brand value proposition, actively targeting those who are currently underserved and feel intimidated by the way the industry is perceived. Simply put, we are on a mission to help people create positive lifestyle habits that make them feel fantastic. Creating the most inclusive and supportive experience regardless of fitness levels, from how we speak to how we support members through technology.
We work very closely with our franchisees: that’s the key to success as we continuously evolve and grow our Snap Fitness brand.
We give every franchisee all the necessary support to get started, grow and thrive, providing all the tools they need to deliver a great service for members. Your success is our success.
Our established global network offers access to a wealth of infrastructure and experience, enhanced by the business expertise and in-market knowledge offered by our regional support hubs.
Every franchisee is guaranteed a robust support system from the very start – and at every stage of their journey with us. We support you with planning and financial, property search, build and design through to recruitment and training your teams and member recruitment, through national marketing and support with you local plans.
We understand that people are key to the success of any service business. We have a system in place that starts before your first club is even open.
We support with recruitment, leverage our partnership with one of the industries leading recruiters to ensure you get the a high calibre team.
We then support from day-one. Providing one-to-one training and access to ‘Snap Academy’, our online L&D platform. This hosts modules on everything they, and you, need to know, including brand and concept, strategy, recruitment, sales and service, systems, product and operations.
In addition we host monthly Knowledge Share sessions to keep your teams up to speed with latest developments.
To further enhance our virtual training, your dedicated Franchise Business Manager will visit you club regularly to ensure the training is being put into practice, that your team is delivering amazing member experiences and meeting agreed sales KPIs. They provide strategic recommendations directly to you on how you can grow your club.
Each and every one of our franchisees is different. Our model allows for you to run your club in a way that suits you.
You recruit a Manager to run the day-to-day operations and manage the team. They be the on ground person, however you will need to stay close to the numbers, being involved in decisions on price strategy and key decision to ensure that the Club is performing.
You are the Manager and run the day-to—day operations, managing teams, analysing data, marketing campaigns, ordering stock and being the face of your club to members.
In both scenarios, you’ll receive regular email communications from HQ and be invited to join, predominately virtual, meetings where we update you on the Snap Franchise estate performance and the plans we have in place to continue to grow the Snap Fitness reach.
There are currently no Snap Franchise resales available. However, our team are actively sourcing new properties in new areas so get in touch about opening your first club.
“I looked at a number of different franchises, I really liked the concept of Snap Fitness including the fact that there are a number of locations available worldwide for members to use, along with Snap’s philosophy, the look of the clubs and the 24/7 opening hours.
I’m an accountant and I have successfully run a Snap Fitness since 2017 with the support and encouragement of the head office team here in the UK, If I can do it anyone can!”
