A new concept developed and owned by Evolution Wellness[3], Asia's leading health club operator whose portfolio also includes Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First, GoFit is the latest addition to Asia's 'high value, low price' gym category and is poised to change the way people think about budget gyms. With membership prices starting from RM89 (~USD21), GoFit is not just affordably priced, but also very well equipped with a wide range of cardio, strength and Olympic lifting equipment catering to all levels of gym goers -- from the new-to-fitness customer to the more serious fitness lover. It keeps membership prices low by using technology as an enabler, self-service approaches, and a low staffing model.

"Across Asia, the awareness around the need to be less sedentary and live an active lifestyle continues to grow. As market leaders, we recognised a space in the market and a unique opportunity for us to embrace and develop a new brand in the fastest-growing industry segment of high value, low price fitness clubs. Through GoFit, we're looking to increase accessibility to quality fitness facilities, and help more people get fitness into their lives," said Simon Flint, Chief Executive Officer, Evolution Wellness.

"GoFit's no-frills concept effectively removes a barrier for those who see cost as a reason for not exercising, whilst still allowing them to engage in fitness in a modern, high quality and technology-driven environment," he continued.

At a GoFit club, access is gained through an app for increased security, which facilitates 24/7 operating hours should the demographic require it, while a self-managed membership system makes it easy for members to purchase add-on services such as a session on the HydroMassage Lounger1, or a FitQuest fitness assessment2. Members can also participate in a Signature GoFit workout3, SuperCircuitTM; workoutto scheduled or on-demand digital classes, as well as stream their own workouts onto the large screens in the MyGoZoneTM, so you don't have to strain your neck or your eyes to watch a workout video on your phone anymore.

Nad Myan, Evolution Wellness's Franchise Development Director said, "The budget gym segment around the world has experienced exponential growth in recent years, but we feel that there is still a lot of room for growth for this category here in Asia. We're excited at GoFit's potential to change the way people think about budget gyms, and we'd like to invite fitness-loving entrepreneurs and individuals to join us in doing so. We have a competitive licensing programme that we believe is the most attractive fitness business platform for those looking to venture into the vibrant fitness industry in Asia and beyond, with the expertise and commercial support of Asia's leading health club operator."

"We have successfully combined our industry knowledge and learnings with our team's global experience to create an opportunity for our partners to enter the industry with a low investment, attractive ROI and low operational overheads by leveraging our technology platforms. GoFit has already attracted a great deal of consumer and investor interest that will see this new brand grow rapidly, providing more choices and better opportunities," Myan added.

Notes:

1.       HydroMassage provides an invigorating recovery programme delivered by travelling water jets under a waterproof skin (so the user doesn't get wet) to help alleviate muscle and soft tissue injuries.

2.       FitQuest is a fitness assessment that utilises four simple exercises (or tasks) and a heart rate recovery measurement that only takes four minutes to complete.  Once the tasks have been completed, the results are displayed on the screen immediately and are also accessible online. The FitQuest machine can also be used to perform a body composition analysis to determine a variety of metrics including body fat and muscle percentage.

3.       SuperCircuit™ is a proprietary GoFit programme. It is a 30 minute HIIT workout, with a mixture of cardio and strength training to give you that full-body burn. Members train in a designated zone for SuperCircuit™ where our equipment selection has been carefully constructed to ensure ease of use, adding to the efficiency the workout.
