Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market a very well respected community gym opportunity, established by our client in 2019.
The ‘turn-key’ business is now being made available for sale due to the other business interests of our client which means he can’t spend the time required to continue with the gym's growth.
Our client has invested in excess of £40,000 to both equip the unit but also to create a new mezzanine level to increase the member space which is currently designated for spinning classes.
The gym offers the following -
- Cardio Equipment
- Resistance Equipment
- Free Weights Area
- Spinning cycling classses
- Personal Training
A full breakdown on all equiptment included can be made available upon further request.
The business is running at these hours due to our clients other business needs. However, a new buyer should look to expanding this as opening earlier/closing later could massively increase the turnover.
Our client offers both a ‘Pay as you go’ option as well as £20 a month direct debit membership scheme.
Due to the Covid, all gym/leisure businesses across the country were forced to close and as a result many people cancelled their gym memberships.
We are advised now, the gym is seeing their old and new members return.
Current membership is 70 with approx 20% using the ‘Pay as you go’ option and 80% paying by monthly direct debit option.
We are advised our client only takes on limited personal training clients and any new owner would benefit from increasing this side of the business.
