First EnVie Fitness franchise opens in Wollongong

First EnVie Fitness franchise opens in Wollongong
September 18, 2012

Promising a 'new era' for female fitness in Australia, the first EnVie Fitness for Women franchise has opened in the Wollongong suburb of Woonona - with 545 foundation members, many of whom rushed to sign up within the first week of pre-opening.

Created by women for women, EnVie Fitness offers a holistic state-of-the-art studio that connects with women's body, mind and spirit.

The new venture offers an exceptional fitness experience tailor-made to meet today's female needs and interests. The end result is a breakthrough in the women's fitness industry, built on research by leading experts across diverse disciplines.

EnVie Fitness is not only generating excitement among women - its pioneering franchise system is sparking as much interest in the fitness industry, with new clubs set to open in the coming weeks.

EnVie Fitness Ocean Grove, Victoria, opens in October, with a third studio in Victoria to follow in early 2013, while discussions are underway for the first Queensland studio.

EnVie Fitness Chief Executive Dave Hundt, who in 2004 bought the Australian rights for the Contours Express franchise, explains "EnVie has been met with a tremendously positive reaction.

"We broke a traditional mould to offer a new, unique business model that allows franchisees to achieve much higher levels of productivity and profitability. At the same time, we're able to deliver more services and more customisation to members.

"For franchisees and members we deliver what matters most - successful results."

EnVie Ftiness claims to offer an unparalleled level of personalisation for members incorporating the exclusive services of a fitness concierge, progressive personalised programs, over 40 motivating indoor and outdoor group training sessions, extended hours, nutritional guidance, child-minding, and flexible membership packages with no contracts or joining fees.

For franchisees with a passion for helping women achieve better fitness and health, EnVie Fitness offers an innovative, affordable franchisee package based on a true partnership and mission to grow the member bank. Low-cost entry and no-royalty payments makes this one of the most favourable platforms in the industry.

Hundt adds "we further support franchisee success by providing extensive training and a highly-systemised operational system.

"With reduced staff requirements and minimal equipment set up, weve built a very exciting turn-key operation. And response from both franchisees and members has been sensational."
