Hear From fit20 Franchise Owners

Kieran Igwe, fit20 Farsley & Moortown

"When I heard about fit20 and the results they were achieving utilising the fit20 formula in over 120+ studios in Holland I recognised an opportunity to be able to help more people here in the UK.

I'm very proud to say that me and my team now serve more than 115 members in and around Leeds.

The fit20 concept is great for retaining members as it fits into their busy lives and they've committed to attend their weekly appointment.

We have great people here; many have been with us since we first opened and will likely be here for years to come."

Matt, fit20 Stocksbridge

"I am so grateful that I found out about fit20 at just the right time. Now, approaching 40 I have never felt stronger! I was a customer first before becoming a studio owner in 2019; it ticked all the right boxes for me. It is innovative, time efficient, strength training with expert guidance, very safe and alignment focused. My strength improved hugely along with my energy levels and posture. I was soon able to pick up both my kids at the same time - which felt great!

fit20 is a great compliment to a regular yoga practice and the most mindful way I have come across to train for strength. This led me to enquire about the business opportunity as I saw how well it could work alongside teaching Yoga. I became studio owner here at Fox Valley in 2019 and haven’t looked back since.

For me and running a studio I get so much out of the support we receive from fit20. One of the great things about fit20 is The Academy which is the training process that we use to learn about the fit20 concept and way of training. There is continuous learning available so all studio owners and PTs have all the skills they need to optimise training for each customer and learn about any new advances in technology or science developed by the Dutch head office."

Duncan, fit20 Exeter

My last 20 years have been within the health and fitness sector where I identified that while some gym members improved their health and fitness there were many that did not. This is disappointing, as those that did not get results are often the people that need it the most.

Fortunately, I heard about a new scientific approach to fitness - fit20. Being initially sceptical I went to the UK Head Office and asked to be trained in my suit (one of our USP’s is you do not need to shower or change) – I was ‘blown away’! I researched the training and met members and it is the member’s stories and amazing results that convinced me to open my own fit20 studio in Exeter.

I love running a studio and having my own business while being able to rely on fit20 for the latest research on fitness and business / marketing support from head office. I enjoy sharing successes with our community of franchise owners in our whatsapp group and weekly calls.

Attila, fit20 Chiswick

Attila discovered fit20 at a franchise exhibition, where he had a long discussion with Niri Patel managing director of fit20 UK. The focused approach of 1-2-1 strength and fitness training in compact fit20 studios appealed to Attila, and he was impressed with the transparency and set-up of the franchise network.

Within a few weeks, Attila had been through fit20’s extensive franchisee training and was running his own fit20 studio in Chiswick, West London.

He comments: “The level of support fit20 offers its franchisees is phenomenal. While preparing to launch and in these early stages of operation, the general premise has been: if I find I’m spending more than five minutes thinking about something, just call Niri, and he will quickly steer me in the right direction. This is not only time-saving, but also very reassuring!

“There is also a large support team in the Netherlands, as well as fellow franchisees. Even if you need some very specific information, tailored to just one of your studio members, you have the knowledge and experience of a whole team of trainers, therapists and physios to draw on.”

Dan, fit20 Hellesdon Norwich

"I have always had a keen interest in keeping fit and healthy. Through another business, I was connected with Niri Patel, the Managing Director of fit20 UK. He introduced me to this new franchise fit20 he had brought into the UK from the Netherlands. I was very intrigued by the notion of getting and staying fit in just 20 minutes a week.

With a high scepticism, we called in to the fit20 studio in Sheffield and had a training session to learn more about it. We were very much hooked.

Needless to say, we opened the studio doors of fit20 Hellesdon Norwich in June 2018. We were one of the first studio’s in the UK so we were having to find our feet quickly. The support from Niri and his team is first rate. They really have developed a brilliant business model.

Slow motion high intensity training will explode in the near future, science indicates that. fit20 is so far ahead of the game and is well positioned to be world market leaders. We look forward to being a big part of that and helping Norfolk people and beyond benefit from the very best way for humans to train.
