Australian operator Jetts Fitness targets further UK growth

Jetts Fitness has opened a club in Skipton, Yorkshire, making it the fifth location the Australian gym chain has launched in the 12 months since entering the UK market in September 2017.

The Skipton site – which achieved record pre-sales for the chain in the UK – joins existing Jetts gyms in Erdington, Stockport, Wigan and Portsmouth.

The opening is part of a pipeline of openings which will see two more locations launch this year.

Founded in 2007 by husband and wife team Brendon and Cristy Levenson, Jetts Fitness has established itself in the Australian market by expanding rapidly through a franchise model and now has more than 210 sites in Australia.

It also has a presence in New Zealand, Thailand and the Netherlands.

Jetts focuses on a ‘workout on your terms’ philosophy, which offers flexible memberships with 24/7 access, no lock-in contracts and access to all Jetts gyms worldwide.

It has also created a unique class format for the UK market – a 30-minute class programme called j30 – which looks to capitalise on the popularity of small group training.

"In just over 12 months, we will have launched seven clubs into what is a fiercely competitive market," said Jetts Fitness UK director James Garner.

“Our franchisees are central to our success. Each one is carefully selected so we know that Jetts’ values will remain at the core of every gym and building on the success of the past year, we’re really excited for what the future brings for Jetts UK.”
