Anytime Fitness in Hampshire has experienced consistent growth since opening its doors in 2015.  This profitable business now boasts a turnover in excess of £500,000. As of February 2018, membership was in excess of 1700 members. Located in a large borough in Hampshire and situated on a busy commercial street close to the town centre situated amongst other well-known businesses. The gym benefits from high levels of walk-in traffic due to its excellent location.

The UK Health and Fitness sector had an estimated revenue of £3.1bn in 2017. The sector has seen huge growth in recent years and this looks set to continue. Anytime Fitness is widely recognised as the fastest growing fitness club franchise in the world and presents an excellent opportunity to take advantage of this booming market.

The current franchisee employs a team of staff including a full-time manager to run the business on a day to day basis, the franchisee role is to oversee the whole process and keep the business moving forward. There is limited competition in the area and the gym also benefits from being the only 24-hour gym in the territory. As a result, they have attracted a large number of shift workers.

The current franchisee has continued to invest in the club, adding new equipment and accessories as well and ensuring that all current equipment is cleaned and well maintained. As a result of this, the gym holds an excellent position within the community. With this business, there is an opportunity for growth, with a change or increase in marketing efforts, as well as looking into expanding secondary income from personal trainers and vending machines. By exploring these avenues there is potential to increase membership further. Offering corporate discounts to large companies within the area is an avenue that the current franchisee has not looked into but would highly recommend.

Having built a successful business the owner is now looking to sell this business in order to re-invest into other Anytime Fitness gyms. This provides a new owner with the opportunity to acquire a solid and established business.

Anytime Fitness Essex opened as a new franchise in 2012 steadily growing members, the business now has in excess of 1200 members. The club is situated in an excellent location on a busy retail park with free unrestricted parking directly outside the gym.

The property is 5,000 square feet and is a large open planned premise giving it a spacious feel. The club is fitted out to a high standard and the equipment is excellently maintained. There is a studio incorporated within the gym which offers bespoke virtual classes, which is an excellent use of the 24-hour membership and a great selling point.

There is potential for growth with this already well-established business, which has a turnover in excess of £425,000. The right owner/s are in a prime position to drive the business forward and expand on the growing membership base that the current owner has developed.

The highly profitable Derbyshire branch of Minster was established in 1998 and was purchased by the current owners in April 2005. Since its inception, the business has seen steady growth. There has been significant improvement in turnover in the past two years and more, leading to current turnover of around £590,000.

There has been a strong focus on client retention, which has in turn generated new business through client referrals. Around 10% of clients have been serviced regularly for over a decade, with many other longstanding clients being well looked after.

The business is located in a serviced business centre with on-site parking just outside the centre of the city. It employs 85 staff, five of whom are full time, to provide services to clients across a range of business sectors, including healthcare and dental practises where certain expertise is required.

On rare occasions an exceptional business is placed on the market for sale. A business with a strong track record of development and growth and yet with potential for much more. This is one of those rare purchase opportunities.

Our client is an established and successful domiciliary homecare business with a turnover in excess of £1.4m and impressive margins. The vendor is looking to exit to concentrate on other business interests but could be willing to provide funding and/or consultancy support to the right purchaser.

The business provides stable returns but remains well positioned to further exploit its sector. It therefore provides opportunities for a purchaser seeking an investment/lifestyle business or direct involvement to realise the additional potential it has already identified.
