The recent growth of boutique class-based workouts makes it appear that the world is witnessing the arrival of a completely new style of training. In fact, the most passionate clients — now considered to be consumers that turn up to a training center more than two times per week – are moving in droves to class-based workouts. F45 has pioneered functional HIIT (high intensity interval training) and has outpaced any of its peers with respect to studio growth, according to Entrepreneur magazine. As of August 2021, F45 was the only class-based franchise company that was ranked in the top 40 fastest growing franchises in the world and was ranked #1 as the world’s fastest-growing gym franchise.
Adam J. Gilchrist, President, CEO and Chairman of F45 said, “We believe our growth can be attributed to our three key pillars: Innovation of workouts; Motivation from training in team-based classes; and Results from F45 deploying HIIT as the modality that achieves the best results for clients looking for life-changing outcomes. We believe that we can become the fastest-growing franchise in the world and accelerate past household names such as McDonalds and 7-Eleven. Being the only class-based franchise in the top 40 fastest growing franchises is a very proud moment for us, as it underscores our belief that we deliver the world’s best workout with incredible returns for franchise investors.”
