Our Journey

The Gym Group is the original provider of low cost gym facilities. We provide 24/7, flexible gym membership to deliver value-for-money for all of our members.

Our technology-led operating model enables us to continually improve our member experience, inform our operating and business strategy with comprehensive data and manage our costs to deliver a great price, strong margins and a high return on capital.

Founded in 2007 by our Chief Executive Officer, John Treharne, we have expanded rapidly across the UK. We believe there is still a significant growth opportunity for low cost gyms in the UK.

The Group is well placed to capitalise on this growth opportunity and is well positioned to open between 15 and 20 gyms per year over the medium term.
