Jetts Portsmouth Franchisees Celebrate First Anniversary with Record Membership Numbers


Take a look round the gym and watch and listen to business owner Joel as he talks through his first year at Jetts Portsmouth.

After celebrating their first year of taking charge at Jetts Portsmouth, we spoke with Joel, the business owner and one half of the franchisee partnership who have overseen a series of positive changes at the gym, which has seen a big uplift in its performance.

Since joining Jetts and taking ownership of Jetts Portsmouth, former international amateur boxer and ex-military PT, Joel, and his business partner David, have seen their investment in the gym make instant returns with a big growth in membership and high retention rates.

As they complete their first year in the Jetts network, their Portsmouth gym has achieved its highest ever membership figures and they are actively looking at locations for their second gym.

James Garner, Jetts UK Director was also interviewed and spoke highly of the business owners and their work at Jetts Portsmouth, “Both Joel and David have brought an energy and passion to the gym as well as a clear plan on investing in the facilities and the marketing, and the uplift has seen consistent and sustained membership growth, month on month since they took over.”

On celebrating their first year as business owners of Jetts Portsmouth, Joel said, “We are already working with James, viewing locations for our second gym, so I guess that says it all! Of course there are challenges when you open a gym or take on an existing facility, but the support has been there from day one with the team and this is why I believe Jetts stands out from all the other gym franchises.”

“Joel and David are great business owners that have bought into the brand, our ethos and alongside Joel’s positive on-site presence and their collective decision making on the upgrades to the gym, they have created a real energy on the gym-floor that the members love and it is reflected in the record new sign ups and high retention rates since they took over the gym.”

James Garner – Director, Jetts UK


“We knew Jetts were the partner for us as soon as we visited the Portsmouth gym because they already had all the systems, the processes, the brand, marketing and the central support team; it was the best decision we could have made.”

Joel Kirby – Co-Director, Jetts Portsmouth
