FS8, the training concept combining the best elements of Pilates, tone and yoga into one progressive 45-minute workout, has advised that it has successfully secured over 120 franchises in Australia in its first year of operation with more than 43 studios currently open across the country.
Backed by the team behind F45 Training, FS8 General Manager, Janina Czado attributes the growth to its unique fitness proposition, where low impact meets high energy, explaining “FS8 has grown swiftly in the 12 months since it launched, with over 120 franchises sold.
“We’ve built and maintained a solid and valued base of FS8 members across Australia, removing the need for people to hold multiple gym memberships by offering three unique styles of exercise in one workout.”
Creating what it sees as a progressive new fitness movement, FS8 is now set to launch flagship studios in international markets including the US, Asia, Middle East and Europe, with Czado comments “we’re expecting accelerated growth in the next 18 months (and are) excited to be expanding into the global market with FS8 studios in the United Kingdom, United States, Thailand, and Qatar to open in the next few months. ”
Despite a challenging couple of years for the fitness industry, FS8 has grown exponentially after launching in April 2021 with its buy in franchise model consisting of an establishment fee, an equipment pack and a monthly franchise fee as well as additional costs and expenses in opening the franchise location.
