The Jetts health and fitness group has reached a significant milestone with the unveiling of its 200th club and has plans for 50 more this year.

The latest outlet in Brisbane comes just six years after opening the chain's first club in 2007.

Adrian McFedries, Jetts Group managing director, said "We have an outstanding team of people in the Jetts network that are committed to maintaining our leadership of the 24/7 fitness industry. The essence of Jetts is providing members with freedom of choice – low fees, no contracts and 24/7 access to 200+ conveniently located gyms.

"I am immensely proud of our six year journey. Today we are announcing the 199th club in Belmont, Victoria, and the 200th club in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane; that's an incredible achievement and the result of a remarkable team of people. From here, our focus is on Sydney where there is significant market potential and we aim to add 20 clubs in NSW by the end of 2013."

EXPANSION

The group is targeting a 53 per cent increase in turnover this year having reported revenue of $74 million for 2011-2012. 

The health and fitness group intends to operate about 350 clubs in Australasia by the end of 2014 and has international expansion in its sights.

The 200th milestone celebration follows the recent announcement that for a second year running, Jetts has been awarded 'Canstar Blue #1 gym for customer satisfaction'.

McFedries said “We are delighted to open our 200th club and our commitment to our members remains the same just as it was when we opened our very first club. We are here to cater for members' needs and perfectly complement their lifestyle, in terms of convenience, affordability and a great all-round experience.”
