Jetts Fitness targets UK growth

‘Australia’s Most Loved Gym’ opens five UK sites in 12 months with two more set to launch this autumn

Monday 10 September, 2018 – Australian health and fitness chain Jetts Fitness has opened its fifth UK club, Jetts Skipton, just 12 months since entering the UK market in September 2017. The Skipton site – which achieved a record pre-sale for the chain in the UK – joins existing gyms in Erdington, Stockport, Wigan and Portsmouth, with two more clubs set to launch this autumn.

Founded in 2007 on Australia’s Gold Coast by husband and wife team Brendon and Cristy Levenson, Jetts Fitness quickly established itself in the Australian market by expanding rapidly through a franchise model and now has over 210 sites in Australia alone, with presence also in New Zealand, Thailand and Netherlands, alongside the UK.

The gym chain’s success is underpinned by the ‘Workout on your terms’ philosophy at the heart of all of its facilities, ensuring members maximum flexibility with 24/7 access, no lock-in contracts and access to all Jetts gyms worldwide.

In the UK, Jetts also leads with its ‘Train in quality’ tag line that members across the country are reaping the benefits from. No overcrowding through capped memberships means that gym goers can maximise their time on the quality fitness equipment and, unique to the UK, Jetts’ 30-minute class programme j30 capitalises on the popularity of small group training and further enhances its offering to members.

Commenting on the growth of the gym chain, Jetts Fitness UK Director James Garner said: “Since opening our first UK site last September, the Jetts brand has gone from strength to strength and in just over 12 months, we’ll have launched seven clubs into what is a fiercely competitive market.

“Jetts offers a fresh approach to 24/7 gyms; we are focused on improving the lives of our members and the communities within which our clubs operate, and our franchisees are central to this; 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.”

Andy Johnson, General Manager at Jetts Stockport, said: “We’ve had great feedback since opening and the maximum flexibility that a Jetts membership offers, combined with the premium quality equipment, has been really well received. There’s also a real sense of community within our club which is fantastic to see.”
