F45 (Australia) to Expand its Presence in the United Kingdom

13 Feb 2018 - An Australian fitness franchise has selected Harrogate as the location for its first site in the North.

F45 Training, represented by Savills, has agreed a deal to let 2,238 sq ft of ground floor space at Unit 5, Westgate House.

F45 Harrogate will be the first northern venue for the franchise, which was established in Bondi in 2013. The operator has since opened more than 500 venues across the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East, North America and Europe.

It currently has UK sites in London and the South East.

Josh Howe, associate in the retail team at Savills Leeds, said: "We are delighted to have secured the first gym in the north for F45 following their considerable success in London and the south east.

"There is strong appetite for fitness and leisure operators from the public as increasingly unique concepts continue to refresh the market."

Luke Armstrong, global franchise director at F45, added: "F45 cannot wait to bring the world's best team training workout to North Yorkshire with the opening of F45 Harrogate.

"Our record-breaking expansion around the world has fast asserted F45 as the market-leader in group fitness and we've learned that our popularity is not confined to the cities and as such our appetite for suitable regional real estate is huge."
