In 2020, Fitness Cartel Health Clubs arrived on the Australian fitness franchise scene, offering a unique business model and fit-out, which delivers multiple revenue streams, and includes a full team for management support.

Founder and Director of Fitness Cartel Health Clubs Australia, Nathan James, is recognised for his former roles as co-owner of World Gym Australia, Genesis Fitness Clubs and Australian Sports Nutrition stores. He says:

“Fitness Cartel offers the latest cardio and strength equipment including TechnoGym, as well as Les Mills group fitness classes, yoga, Pilates, functional training and cycling. We have separate training areas and a new system that guarantees results never seen in any Australian club before – and everything is designed to ensure you feel comfortable, whilst keeping up-to-date with market trends.”

He adds:

“Our feel-good environment is designed to challenge, motivate and inspire results; and we achieve this by offering the best workout possible using the best facilities, customer service and atmosphere in the industry. Our diverse fit-out and dedicated team provide electric experiences for our members, which sets us apart from the competition.”

“Cartel” refers to a group of people who are committed to dominating their market, and the brand’s current trajectory for growth confirms they are true to their name.

TJ Groot, General Manager and Partner at the Cartel explains:

“Currently, we’re operating in Aspley and Maroochydore (all in Queensland), as well as Tweed Heads (in New South Wales). Our Oxley (QLD) site is almost operational, and our Albion Park (NSW) location is due to open on the 1st of March. It’s very exciting times because in addition to these five sites, we plan to launch another five before the end of the year; this equates to a 400 per cent growth in just two years.”

Expressions of interest are invited, for future investment and franchise opportunities. Passionate, motivated and experienced individuals who are interested to explore available territories and franchises should contact Sydney-based consultancy company, Fitness Business Sales, who has been appointed by the Cartel, to spearhead the expansion of the brand throughout Australia.

James says:

“The strength lies in the unique business structure which drives multiple revenue streams allowing for a faster ROI. And in our relentless pursuit for success, we aim to have 30 sites operational by 2024.”
