Jetts opens first club in Asia

Jetts opens first club in Asia
January 28, 2016

Leading Australian-owned fitness group Jetts has opened its first club in Asia, in the Thai capital of Bangkok.

The recent opening is a significant milestone for Jetts and marks the first time an Australian fitness chain has operated in Asia. Jetts, which launched on the Gold Coast in 2007, includes more than 270 gyms across Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands.

The new larger format club is open 24/7 and features a cardio zone, pin-loaded equipment zone, free weight zone, group zone, functional training zone and socialization area.

Writing on LinkedIn, Jetts’ Asian Director Glenn Yee explained "Jetts' continued success is based upon a strong support structure for its business partners with a specific focus upon customer satisfaction."

Yee added "when working with our international business partners we listen and collaborate to ensure both parties obtain their objectives."

Jetts founder and Managing Director, Brendon Levenson, said Thailand was experiencing a growth in its economy, which has placed higher demand for quality fitness services built around convenience and flexibility, stating "Thailand is currently witnessing tremendous growth in its middle class segment, bringing with it a demand for fitness services such as gym memberships and personal training.

“This growth presents great opportunities for our brand, with locals increasingly looking for more convenient fitness options. The combination of our 24/7 access and no lock-in contracts, alongside our Aussie brand, has been a big driver of new sales within the first gym.

“Australia’s focus on healthy living and an active lifestyle holds us in high regard internationally. We’re seeing that consumers in other markets really aspire to this concept, and will embrace the Jetts’ philosophy.”

Jetts' success domestically is driven by the ongoing strong demand from customers for a gym that provides a high standard of customer service, 24/7 access to its locations and great value for money. Jetts customers have the flexibility of a no lock-in contract, and once members join, they can use any of the chain’s locations free of charge.

Its ‘workout on your terms’ philosophy and customer centric approach is about providing an alternative to the big gym chains, to suit people who are looking for more simplicity and flexibility with their gym membership.

Looking to further growth in Asia, Levenson adds "the Asian market, particularly Thailand, is still very much in its infancy but growing fast. The chains that dominate are charging high fees and focusing on locking their members into 12 and even 18 month contracts. We simply don’t believe that model is the best for members and instead, aim to provide more people with the freedom of choice when it comes to joining a gym."
