Bodystreet: Changing the Shape of the Nation
A proven and profitable single or multi-site opportunity
There are so many reasons why Bodystreet should be considered a great opportunity.
- The government has plans in place such as sport and childhood obesity strategy to encourage exercise participation.
- Our lives seem to be getting busier, leaving little time to workout – even if we have the motivation. Bodystreet’s once-a-week 20-minute workout can fit into even the busiest schedule.
- A typical Bodystreet studio is around 800 sq. feet. Most high streets have suitable property.
- Bodystreet has been operating for nearly ten years. There is a proven model which means set-up, launch and ongoing support are all in place to help you achieve your goals.
Bodystreet operate micro-fitness studios where members receive personal instruction from our highly trained talent team. By using Bodystreet’s unique once-a-week workout programme, which incorporates EMS technology, our members are able to gain results similar to what two or three personal training gym session would achieve.
In the last 10 years Bodystreet has grown from a single studio in Munich to approaching 300 studios across Germany, Austria, Switzerland and now the UK. Our clients train collectively around 140,000 times per month – and this is growing year-on-year.
Be part of the UK’s growing multi-million pound fitness industry – which continues to grow
The UK fitness industry continues to see year-on-year growth – predicted to be worth £7.7 billion this year; with industry experts predicting a 17% increase in the years to come. Although gym membership is estimated to be 9.2 million, there is a huge group of people that simply don’t have the time or motivation to go to ‘the gym’ – which is where Bodystreet comes to the fore. Our 20 minute, once-a-week exercise programme means that anyone, even the most time starved, can achieve their fitness goals.

Bodystreet: An award-winning opportunity
In 2016 the Germany Franchise Association awarded Bodystreet with the accolade of Franchise System of the Year – a truly impressive award. This same system is utilised within the UK studios – the system is tried, tested and works.
The typical investment for a Bodystreet franchise is £80,000 – depending on property, with ongoing franchise fees of just 9% of sales. Refreshingly, this business has very controllable overheads; so there are no hidden costs – in fact as membership levels grow there are few additional costs needed to operate the business. Meaning greater rewards – profit – for the studio owner and an excellent resale value.
As with all businesses income can vary, however at Bodystreet we’ve been operating for nearly ten years and have had franchisees for nearly all of that time. This means we have robust expectation models for you to review.
As a successful franchisee you can expect to achieve great rewards – not just financial. A good studio should generate profit in year one – so long as you follow our system and substantial profits year two onwards. If your membership numbers continue to grow, as per our minimum averages, you should realise a turnover level of around £200,000 per annum with a profit of between £60-£100,000 per year.
To open a Bodystreet franchise you will need the ability to raise at least £10,000 personally. The business model is approved by the major banks and funders; so you could borrow up to the full investment level, subject to status.
