Following hot on the heels of their successful launch in in Ireland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Finland, and reinforcing their position as a global fitness provider, F45 celebrates a new milestone in their European expansion with the launch of their first site in Scotland.
Michael Dean, UK sales director for F45, said: “We are delighted to be opening a studio in Glasgow. We have worked tirelessly to create a truly innovative brand and franchise model that can flourish and grow in any country. Our goal is for there to be an F45 studio in almost every corner worldwide, and with the accelerated growth we have seen in just four and a half years, we are confident that we can make this happen.”
Now operating in 40 countries, F45 was born in Australia in 2014 and has since taken the world by storm. Founded by former equities trader Rob Deutsch, who spotted a gap in the health and fitness market, F45 has fast become a global fitness phenomenon with over 1,500 outlets worldwide. Designed by Sport Scientists and Elite Athletes, F45’s unique, team-based, high-intensity interval training consist of 45-minute workouts which feature over 4,000 fun, functional and efficient exercises and an extensive range of 35 workout programmes.
F45 Glasgow is set to open this summer and will follow the same high intensity, group training format that the brand has become synonymous for.
Michael Quigley, owner of F45 Glasgow, said: “We are so excited for the people of Scotland to experience the fitness phenomenon that is F45. The rate at which the brand has grown at in the UK and Europe over the last two years is a real testament to the innovative concept that delivers amazing results. We are thrilled to be a part of the F45 family and look forward to opening our doors to the public later this year.”
The global success of F45 as a franchise network has encouraged many athletes, personal trainers and entrepreneurs to become part of this innovative fitness movement due to its relatively low start up and running costs, turn-key set up and generous return on investment.
In addition, F45 boasts an impressive array of ambassadors worldwide, including English Rugby Union player, James Haskell.
With further European openings scheduled for later this year, including sites in Italy and Spain, the phenomenal growth of the F45 studio portfolio continues to dominate the UK and European fitness industry.
