‘Australia’s Most Loved Gym’ announces its 10th UK club will open in Brixton, London, in Winter 2020
Launched in the UK less than 3-years ago, Jetts 247 Fitness, the global health and fitness chain, originated in Australia, is set to open Jetts Brixton in December 2020 taking the UK network to 10 gyms with its third affordable boutique facility taking up residency in London.
Owned by David and Kevin Barry, the brothers are the UK’s first multi-site operators following the opening of Jetts Colliers Wood in late 2018 and their recent acquisition of Jetts Portsmouth. Securing Jetts Brixton will see the fitness entrepreneurs’ partner with the Jetts UK team to open the third site in their gym portfolio.
The 5,200sq ft gym, situated in an outstanding location on Brixton Hill and just a short walk from Brixton underground station, will bring Jetts’ 24-hour, affordable boutique fitness offering to the fifth most densely populated borough in the country.
Seen as a significant moment in the brand’s evolution, the site will be home to Jetts’ first outdoor functional fitness area which will be accessible all year round. The gym will also have a designated work area for those professionals who want to log in before or after their workout. Members will also have access Jetts’ brand new J Series, an intense, results based 30-minute small group HIIT training classes that provide the ultimate full body workout for members of every fitness level.
Founded in 2007 on Australia’s Gold Coast by husband and wife team Brendon and Cristy Levenson, Jetts 247 Fitness quickly established itself in the Australian market and by expanding rapidly through a franchise model and now operates more than 300 gyms globally with sites in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the Netherlands as well as its fast growing presence in the UK.
Since launching in the UK, the business has established a clear differentiated position with its push towards affordable boutique style gyms. Matching high quality facilities with a focus on bespoke programming, Jetts has created a strong connectivity between members and, delivering results-based training to its growing band of loyal members.
Commenting on the announcement and ongoing growth of the gym chain, Jetts Fitness UK Director James Garner said: “Since our inception into the UK market, the Jetts brand has gone from strength to strength and bringing our fresh approach to 24/7 gyms to the Brixton community is just the next step in our wider UK expansion plans.
“Jetts Brixton is just the first in a series of planned new openings as we head in 2021 and look to quickly expand the UK footprint of our affordable boutique inspired facilities. The Brixton site provides a series of new enhancements for our members with our first outdoor fitness area and dedicated workspace continuing the evolution of our offering as we continue our aim of improving the lives of the members and communities within which our clubs operate. Led by experienced, multi-franchise owners who really understand our core values, we’re really excited to get the pre-sale underway and open our 10th club later this year.”
The opening of the Brixton site follows a record breaking opening in Farnborough in early 2020 which proceeded the successful opening of Jetts Clapham and with the easing of lockdown and the gyms now all re-open, the expectations are that 2021 will see a major growth in new UK openings.
