Snap Fitness expands into Tasmania

Gym-goers in Tasmania will soon have a new local club to work up a sweat at, as global health and fitness brand Snap Fitness has announced their plans to expand into Tassie as they look to surpass 300 clubs in Australia in 2020.


Last year saw Tasmania lead the nation’s economic growth for the first time on record, with the Australian Bureau of Statistics revealing the state’s economy grew at almost double the rate of the national average.


Snap Fitness APAC CEO Ty Menzies said 2020 is the perfect time for the brand to expand into Tasmania, and for Tassie locals to take the step of running their own gym.


“With strong economic growth, an upwards trend in employment and one of the country’s highest long-term survival rates for business, it’s a great time to do business in Tassie,” said Mr Menzies.


Mr Menzies said the franchise brand will focus on securing up to ten sites in and around Hobart before working to secure sites right across the state.


“We’re in the process of securing some great sites in Hobart and now we’re looking for passionate fitness enthusiasts to join the team as franchisees,” said Mr Menzies.


“Australia’s health and fitness sector is booming and is forecasted for continual revenue growth in the coming years, offering a strong investment opportunity for business owners.”


As one of Australia’s leading fitness brands backed by a global network of over 2,000 clubs, including 275 across Australia and New Zealand, Snap Fitness’ proven franchise model provides new club owners with training and ongoing support.
