Eat the Frog Fitness Named Top 100 Fitness Franchises. General, Franchising Opportunities | Monday, January 3, 2022


We are thrilled to announce that Eat the Frog Fitness has been named one of the Top 100 Fitness Franchises by Franchise Connect Magazine! This honor was bestowed out of recognition of the outstanding benefits offered by owning one of our franchises. The brand was also featured in a story on how “connected fitness” will be a key trend in the future of the industry.

Why Eat the Frog Fitness was Declared a Top 100 Franchise

The reasons for our inclusion in the list of the Top 100 Fitness Franchises are many. While our current franchise owners are more than aware of what makes our brand great, here are a few points that anyone looking for a franchise to buy should consider:

  • Eat the Frog Fitness is a trusted brand.

As Eat the Frog Fitness has grown and gained recognition throughout the industry, it’s become increasingly established in the minds of consumers. This brand awareness is essential if you’re going to compete with the big box gyms, which tend to be extremely costly to launch and operate.

  • Franchisees enjoy outstanding franchise support.

Once you’re part of the Eat the Frog Fitness team, you’ll enjoy all the support you need to operate and grow your business. We provide an array of resources to help fuel your success.

  • There is a greater membership base thanks to our 24/7, connected business model

The Eat the Frog Fitness business model involves 24/7 operations, which can result in 50-70% more members versus daytime-only fitness studios. This is bolstered by our connected technology and training options, which allow members to workout during virtual sessions during non-peak hours of the day.

As the article in Fitness Connect Magazine highlighted, this embrace of technology allows Eat the Frog Fitness franchises to be more competitive in a modern landscape in which many customers seek to exercise in the comfort of their own homes.

  • Reduced staffing needs translate into reduced overhead.

Another benefit of our business model involves greater flexibility in regard to staffing. During off-peak hours, for example, your Eat the Frog Fitness franchise can be run entirely staff-free!

  • Our franchises offer a wide range of revenue streams.

When you own an Eat the Frog Fitness franchise, you have plenty of opportunities for revenue beyond membership fees. Personal coaching, pay-to-participate challenges, retail products, hosted events, and a range of additional add-ons and upgrades can all bolster your bottom line thanks to the increase in diverse, reliable revenue streams.

  • The opportunities for expansion are endless!

Perhaps most exciting of all is the fact that Eat the Frog Fitness presents the opportunity for ongoing growth. As your franchise thrives, you can build upon your success by opening more locations!


Why “Connected Fitness” Is a Key Aspect of the Eat the Frog Business Model

Digital fitness platforms were already on the rise prior to 2020, but when lockdowns forced businesses to close and fitness enthusiasts to bring their workouts home, connected fitness became essential and the trend really began to boom. Now even though fitness studios have reopened and people are flocking back, many have discovered that they enjoy more flexibility to workout when and where they want. As a result, virtual fitness opportunities (both in and out of the studio) remain an appealing membership perk for many clients, and that trend is only going to continue.

This was precisely why Franchise Connect Magazine chose to feature Eat the Frog Fitness in the piece it published on connected fitness, and why the magazine selected our brand as one of the top fitness franchise opportunities you can find!


Now Is the Perfect Time to Own a Fitness Studio

The coming year is the perfect time for you to own a fitness studio. Members are flocking back to the gym, interest rates on SBA loans are still lower, and health and wellness are a growing priority among consumers—especially those who gained weight during COVID lockdowns.
