Healthy Inspirations weight loss franchises
In comparison to most fitness franchises which only offer a fitness facility and maybe a standard diet, Healthy Inspirations centres offer a weight loss program called The Great Shape Program. This includes exercise as a key component.
All members of these health franchises are female and they range from teenagers to women in their eighties. The thinking is that overweight women are more comfortable exercising in a female-only environment.
Potential franchisees need to be able to afford a franchise fee of $30,000 (including GST). This fee gives them:
- A pre-defined territory
- Site selection assistance
- On-site 5-day staff training school
- Pre-launch marketing assistance
- Soft-launch on-site operations assistance
- The first three months royalty
- Site design assistance
- Initial franchisee training
- Staff recruitment guidelines
The franchisor creates the marketing but all franchisees control and pay for their own media mix. This means that franchisees are free to customise the mix to suit themselves and their own business needs.
Franchisees and their teams have access to:
- Unlimited phone support
- Monthly marketing strategies
- An online franchisee networking forum
- Online business benchmarking at a small cost
- Teleconferences and franchisee conferences (2 per year)
