Own a Gym

We’re revolutionising fitness franchising and showing you why budget is not always best. Join our Solan Squad Franchise.

Who We Are

The first gym started in January 2013, owned and run by a husband and wife team, Rachelle Solan and Josh Ahmet, located in Orpington, Kent.  They had passion and a strong vision to revolutionise the fitness industry and to break the cliché of traditional gyms.  With budget gyms vastly opening and spa and racquet club gyms not meeting the needs of fitness enthusiasts, Rachelle and Josh realised there is a massive gap in the market.  Their passion and dedication was recognised by the National Fitness Awards and won multi-awards for being best in their industry in the UK for 2015 & 2016 and shortlisted in 2017.

They built gyms around the member’s needs focusing on achieving results and only believe in delivering the best equipment with the best service.  Being priced within the middle market and adding the value to the members experience, the first club grew strength to strength which allowed them to successfully open a second gym in February 2017.

We’re here to rock the fitness industry with our unique built gyms that are created to have the ‘wow factor’, ‘blow your socks ‘off effect, in an environment that is fun, cool and ‘let’s get down to business’ way!  Solan Fitness has been developed and built award winning, state of the art fitness clubs and we are now taking our unique concept global.

The Fitness Industry

Our industry is a growing market and the Millennials are now educating themselves with health, fitness and becoming more conscious in appearance and body image than ever before. With the TV, media and social media focusing on vanity needs and body images, the fitness trend is vastly growing.  Les Mills Global Consumer Fitness Survey was released in 2013 reveals Millennials are now doing more gym activities more than any other generation before. Millennials view the traditional health clubs something for their parents and not for them.  The fitness industry is evolving and our gyms are growing with the Millennials and fitness enthusiasts.

Research conducted for professional services firm PwC by The Local Data Company (LDC) shows more health clubs opened in 2016, while department stores and banks saw a fall in store numbers.

According to a new report by The Leisure Database Company (LeisureDB) 2017, membership of UK gyms rose from 9.2m to 9.7m last year, as the number of facilities went up to more than 6,500. 1 in 7 of us is now a member.

A Strong Investment

Fitness is at its peak and still growing, joining a Solan Fitness franchise is a strong investment as there are no middle market operators with our unique concept owning this space.  Be involved in this investment and dominate the market with us!

We believe budget operators are now being saturated and offer all the same product with a different name.  We know cheap isn’t always the best nor is it the best on your return on investment.  We believe in healthy profits and high margins.  For every 1 membership we sell, a budget operator must work 4 times as hard to achieve the same revenue.

Our model works smart for your money and we have achieved multiple streams of income in one Club, we believe you should be maximizing revenue from several different avenues on your business.
