Plus Fitness opens latest Indian gym in South Mumbai
January 31, 2020

Australian-based gym chain, Plus Fitness has opened its latest club in India in a premium location in the heart of South Mumbai.

Commenting on the opening of Plus Fitness 24/7 Mumbai Central, franchisee Alfan Lakdawalla stated “I am very passionate about helping people to get fit and healthy so when I saw the Plus Fitness franchise model and got to understand their strong culture and previous business success I was confident that buying a Plus Fitness was the best decision for me.

“For many people joining a gym can be an intimidating experience (but) our gym isn’t intimidating and we are all about welcoming everyone no matter what their experience in using gyms is and teaching them how to use all of our equipment and to become a healthier happier person.

“As a brand we are committed to ‘Working Towards A Healthier India’ and we are proud of our goal and what we are achieving here.”

Master Franchisee Siraj Lalani stated that “Alfan is the perfect fit for us as a franchisee.

“He has done a Bachelor of Commerce and has studied several personal training and nutrition courses as well as previously running his own personal training and supplement business.

“The club has been well received by the local community and has generated Rs 45,00o,000 (INR 45 lakhs/US$65,000) in its pre-sale alone representing 35% of the total investment.

“This has motivated Alfan to reinvest into business straight away and he is already looking for property for his second club in Mumbai.”

Business Development Head Faiz Sopariwala stated that, “as well as our highly successful three gyms in Ahmedabad, in addition to this new Mumbai gym, we also have plans to open further Plus Fitness 24/7’s in both Mumbai and Pune in the coming months.”

A Plus Fitness gym is open 24/7 for its members to use and offers a wide range of world class cardio, strength and functional training equipment while also offering a wide range of classes such as yoga, aerobics, HIIT and Zumba a well as providing private bathrooms, changing rooms and showers.

All Plus Fitness 24/7’s also offer personal training for their members to help them achieve their health and fitness goals.
