Boutique gym franchise for savvy investors
- Prime territories available across the UK -

✓ Low investment: open three 9Round units to the cost of one big-brand gym
✓ Less employees = less HR headaches
✓ Operational breakeven around 2-4 months per unit, full payback typically at 24 months

One of the lowest investment levels in the gym sector, 9Round is a world class franchise with over 750 studio gyms operating globally and it’s set to deliver premium returns to UK investors, having proved the concept domestically.


Boost your wealth

9Round franchisees are knowledgeable investors, usually with a keen interest in health and fitness. Most have added 9Round as an additional income stream and continued their existing high-powered job, lucrative contract work or running their other business(es).

The gym sector is a popular segment of the health & fitness industry, and boutique studio style gyms are a niche posting the biggest growth; whereas the traditional machine-filled gyms are fighting each other on price.

A world-class franchisor

Lift Brands are a global player with a portfolio of franchised businesses within the health and fitness sector, including the likes of Snap Fitness. Globally this totals 6,000 units across 28 countries. This scale is only achievable through operating with absolute professionalism, ensuring everything is done to help franchisees succeed.

Rolling out the Snap Fitness brand provided valuable insights into the UK market, but our owners still chose to prove 9Round with six pilot units operating over several years prior to officially launching the franchise opportunity.

The UK team are based in South West London and provide support at every stage of your journey, from sourcing property to training your management team and promoting your units.

9Round vs traditional gyms

People are demanding more convenience and faster, more engaging workouts in a more pleasant and immersive environment. We believe our business model has many advantages over traditional gyms and franchises in other sectors.

✓ The right time to invest – boutique gyms are thriving
✓ Finding PROPERTY is generally easier and quicker with smaller 1,000-1,500sq. ft units
✓ 9Round trainers get to know members by name, unlike the big volume-member gyms
✓ Typical opening hours 7am – 9pm weekdays, weekends depend on location
✓ Monthly subscription income with returning members rather than passing trade
