FitKid has launched a new low-cost franchise to help combat child obesity
FitKid offers you the chance to run your own lifestyle franchise in the growing children’s fitness sector. FitKid launched its franchise package at the National Franchise Exhibition in Birmingham in October 2006 and has just signed its fifth franchisee. It couldn’t be a better time to get involved.
Childhood obesity has really hit the headlines in the last 12 months. A national problem facing families across the UK, there are various Government projects aimed at reducing the number of children who are overweight and take part in little or no regular exercise.
The FitKid children’s fitness franchise provides a positive solution and will be key to the success of Government standards over the coming years. With over 16 years’ experience in running FitKid Clubs, FitKid has the skills and knowledge to support franchisees in building a successful franchise business. The franchise includes qualification standard instructor training to teach children’s classes that encourage physical activity through fun and play.
You don’t need any fitness qualifications to become a franchisee. FitKid will train you in a Fitness for Children qualification designed exclusively by FitKid and recognised by Central YMCA Qualifications, the UK’s leading exercise and fitness specific awarding body. Once you’ve completed the course, you will be confident in what activities are safe for children and hold a nationally recognised qualification.
FitKid is a leader in the children’s fitness sector. A proven business model that offers a good return on investment, the franchise has relatively low start-up costs and you can be up and running within six weeks.
The company launched a successful template franchise in Bournemouth and Poole in 2005, with classes now running in schools across the county. Sessions have proved to be very popular with teaching staff, children and parents alike. The classes have helped children to make exercise part of their lives and all are now firmly on the road to committing to a healthier lifestyle.
Wendy, who runs the classes, is delighted with the progress. She says: "FitKid have been fantastically supportive throughout the process. It was always my dream to work the hours I wanted and seeing how happy the children are during the classes is so rewarding".
