F45 continues to make serious gains across Africa, the Middle East and Europe, by securing sites in Kenya, Mauritius, Iraq and Slovenia.
The sale of these new studios in Kenya and Mauritius will bring the grand total of F45 sites in Africa to eight, following the openings of four studios in South Africa and two in Namibia last year. F45’s presence in the Middle East has been further bolstered to 19 sites, with the recent site sales in Iraq and Afghanistan.
F45’s European expansion is equally impressive, with the launch of a studio in Slovenia bringing the number of European studios up to 60, following site launches in the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Russia and Finland.
Now operating in over 40 countries, F45 was born in Australia in 2014 and is now the fastest growing fitness network in the world. Former equities trader Rob Deutsch, founded F45, after spotting a gap in the health and fitness market, and now has over 1,500 studios worldwide to date. 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.
Luke Armstrong, Global Sales Director of F45, said: “We are thrilled to be launching in four new countries. We have worked tirelessly to create an innovative brand and proven franchise model that can operate from anywhere in the world, and we can’t wait to introduce more people to this fitness phenomenon and transform their lives through F45. This is a truly pivotal moment in our global expansion, and we look forward to entering even more territories in the near future.”
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.
After opening hundreds of new studios internationally this year alone, and a new investment from Mark Wahlberg, F45 is ramping up their global expansion and continues to transform the fitness scene all over the world.
