Beat Theory Fitness launched in 2015, bringing a completely new fitness concept to the market here in the UK. Inspired from huge successes in the US, it offers expert personal training in a group setting.
Ex-professional footballer and celebrity trainer, Riccardo Scala, is the founder and managing director of Beat Theory Fitness and is now offering franchise opportunities to other ambitious industry professionals. Riccardo has been in the fitness industry for over 17 years, and spent four years living and working in California.
“I first came across this concept when working as a personal trainer in California; it's incredible how popular this format of working out is over there. Customers are so drawn to this new lifestyle-based and experiential approach to fitness that they become genuinely devoted to both the activities and the brands. That might help explain why one example of this kind of business in the US, SoulCycle, is speculated to be valued at $1bn despite having only 38 studios.” —Riccardo
The term Group Personal Training is actually a very new term created in the industry to explain to people that they can have all the benefits, intensity and results that would normally be achieved from one-to-one sessions, but in a group environment that brings fun, challenges and accountability (and of course, at a fraction of the price that personal one-to-one training costs).
The workouts are based on the ‘Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption’ (EPOC) theory, which keeps your heart beating, pulsing, pumping and burning fat well after the workout has finished. The business has achieved fantastic results in both its studios in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
“The way people want to work out is changing forever. When you look at the top 20 fitness trends for 2016; no.1 is wearable technology; no.2 is body weight training; and no.3 is high intensity interval training. Also in the top 10 of the list is personal training, and group personal training. So Beat Theory Fitness ticks every box.” —Riccardo
