Global recognition for Snap Fitness

The 19-year-old franchise is named crème de la crème of the fitness sector.

The Minnesota-based Snap Fitness enjoyed international recognition recently when this year’s Global Franchise Awards were held in San Diego. Founded in 2003, Snap Fitness was named Best Fitness Franchise, an accolade which delighted Ty Menzies who is the global chief executive of Lift Brands.

Ty said: “It’s an incredible honour to be recognised among our peers as one of the top international franchise brands. But this wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of the entire Snap Fitness team. And a special thanks to our global marketing team for creating and coordinating the application, which was a rigorous process. I also want to thank our franchisees globally.”

Lift Brands is the parent brand of Snap Fitness which can boast of franchisees in almost 20 countries. In addition to 48 American states, Snap Fitness is also present in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Egypt, Georgia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom.

The Global Franchise Awards, now in its fifth year, pays tribute to world’s leading brands via 18 distinct categories. Winners were chosen based on an analysis of their international presence, strong support of franchisees, innovative marketing campaigns, plus an overall willingness to advance franchising on a global scale. 

Snap Fitness is a brand leader on the international stage, as can be seen in the above list of countries. There are over 640 units combined in the United States and Canada, another 81 in the UK, along with 300 in Asia-Pacific. The brand takes pride in creating an inclusive, empathetic and supportive approach to fitness. Snap Fitness offers a 24/7 fitness experience, while boasting more than 1,000 clubs across the globe.
