Snap Fitness: 'global expansion a priority for 2020'

Snap Fitness has made international expansion its priority for 2020, with plans to enter new territories during the year.

The franchised fitness chain saw healthy growth during 2019, with a particular push taking place in emerging wellness markets. It opened its first club in Taiwan and the brand saw its portfolio grow by 46 per cent in the Asia Pacific region.

The brand also recently opened its 100th club in Europe and overall membership across its global estate increased by nine per cent during the year.

"New gyms are in development across the world and our international expansion is a priority in 2020 – we plan to both expand in current partner countries and enter new markets," said Allison McElroy, chief global development officer of Snap Fitness' parent company, Lift Brands.

Snap is one of several fitness brands and services owned by Lift Brands. Others include 9Round, YogaFit Studios, Steele Fitness and the virtual fitness platform Fitness On Demand.
