FRANCHISE AWARD PROCESS
The process of buying a gym franchise with Workout Anytime is simple and straightforward.
Buying a gym franchise is easier than ever when you choose Workout Anytime! The steps toward owning your own franchise are clear and straightforward and we strive to make the process as transparent as possible to our franchise partners. On goal is to give you all the information you need to make a great decision, which includes speaking with our franchise partners about their experience.
The first step in the process of buying a gym franchise begins with you. If you’re interested in learning more about franchising with Workout Anytime, fill out our brief contact form with your information. Once we’ve received it, we will send you a welcome email and follow up with an introductory call.
During this call, we’ll get to know more about your goals and reasons for wanting to franchise with Workout Anytime. We’re looking to learn more about your background, prior work experience, what your goals are, who you are as a person and what your values are, why you want to invest in our industry, and why you think you’d make a good franchise-partner. We’ll also tell you a little bit more about our company, and walk through some requirements: What our minimum financial requirements are, what we expect from our franchise-partner, and more about our company Mission, Vision, and Values. We want to be sure our values and goals align. If it seems like we’d be a good fit for each other after this introductory meeting, we’ll move on to the next step.
Complete Confidential Profile
After our initial call, we’ll start the process of verifying that you meet the requirements for owning a Workout Anytime franchise. You’ll fill out a formal application, and we’ll run the necessary checks on your experience and financials. Once we’ve reviewed your profile and determined that you meet all of the necessary requirements, we will send you a link to our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Franchise Disclosure Document
Once we’ve gotten to know each other and you are financially qualified to move forward in the process of buying a gym franchise, we’ll provide you with a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). This important document will spell out nearly everything you need to know about our company. Because the FDD is so comprehensive, you’ll need at least two weeks to review it before you sign a franchise agreement. Take your time and ask any questions you have about the FDD, and talk with any legal and financial consultants you have.
As you're reviewing our FDD, you have access to a list of all franchise owners in our system. Please feel free to reach out and speak to owners by phone or text, or meet with them in their clubs. You will be able to ask them about their journey toward opening their doors, and how Workout Anytime professionals helped them with considerations such as site selection, negotiating the lease, designing the club, training, and ongoing support.
Once your application has been approved and you’ve reviewed the FDD, you’ll have the chance to meet our team. You’ll get to sit down with members of our corporate support team or local officials to learn more about the day-to-day operations of the business, and to get to know the people you’ll be working with. They’ll be happy to answer any lingering questions you have about buying a gym franchise with Workout Anytime.
Franchisee Fee, Franchise Agreement, and Get Started
If you’ve advanced to this step, it’s time to sign the Franchise Agreement and Development Agreement, giving you rights to a specific territory. Once the agreement is signed, you’ll officially be a Workout Anytime franchise-partner! You’re on the fast-track to opening your own fitness center. But the process doesn’t end there; the next stages are all about preparing you for the grand opening of your location.
At the same time you sign your franchise agreement, you’ll also settle your initial franchise fees. These upfront fees will help to cover some of the costs of preparing you and your new location for business. Once you’ve signed your franchise agreement and paid your fees, you’ll be ready to get started.
