About REGYMEN Fitness Franchise Opportunities:
REGYMEN Fitness is a multi-platform fitness studio concept developed from decades of fitness industry experience. Our high-energy offering backed by exercise science takes the form of three classes: Burn, Box & Build. Each is supported by real-time analytics and designed to deliver results in the most efficient way possible. With other brands sold out nationwide, the emergence of REGYMEN Fitness as a challenger in the growing boutique fitness studio segment couldnʼt be better timed.
REGYMEN Fitness franchisees benefit from a unique blend of industry expertise and entrepreneurial vision absent from competing boutique fitness studio concepts. Our committed team provides resources, mentorship and guidance for the long-term, consistently pioneering new ways to help franchisees grow their businesses.
Through extensive training, industry-leading technology systems, ongoing marketing assistance and more, our franchisees are primed for success from the day their studio opens.
