Women-only fitness franchise VivaFit enters Spanish market

VivaFit has entered the Spanish fitness market with the opening of a studio in capital city Madrid.

Located in the heart of the city's financial district Barrio de Cuzco, the location will offer VivaFit's mix of personal training, HIIT, Pilates and the company's own Sbarre-branded ballet fitness classes.

The studio, VivaFit's first in Spain, will be owned and operated by franchisee Ana Fernandez.

"Our offer is suitable for all ages and any physical condition," Fernandez said.

"It is safe and guarantees a complete workout, without the risk of injury or muscular pain. During training, women are secure, entertained, and gain the results they desire."

Spain becomes the eighth country in the women-only chain's franchised portfolio, following Portugal, India, Pakistan, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay and Kuwait.
