Invest In A Future You Can Be Passionate About

The ideal candidate for the Gold’s Gym franchise opportunity is an individual or a group with business acumen and experience, and a passion for fitness. But more than that, our investment opportunity aligns with those who have a passion for purpose – a real desire to make a positive difference. Our concept is proven all over the world, but changing just one life in your community is a fulfilling reward that not every franchise can offer.

Financially, we’re looking for a minimum net worth of $1 million with liquidity of $400,000. The estimated investment level for a single gym ranges from $2,218,250 to $5,000,500 with an initial franchise fee of $40,000.

Just as you should be selective when choosing a franchise investment, we too adhere to exceptionally high standards when evaluating franchise candidates. A healthy and cohesive franchisor/franchisee relationship is critical to the success of the Gold’s Gym concept.
