About the Franchise

Contours Express is dedicated to helping women across the globe achieve their fitness goals. It provides a fun and friendly environment where, in just 30 minutes, women of all fitness levels can improve the way they look and, more importantly, the way they feel about themselves.

Its exciting exercise system consists of a 16-piece training circuit, and alternating resistance training machines with aerobic stations. It uses equipment that has been designed especially for women and develops lean muscle, increases metabolism, and improves bone density, helping prevent osteoporosis while burning calories.

Franchisee selection criteria

The franchise model is geared towards an owner/operator, where the owner must play an active role in the running of the gym with close and regular guidance from the franchisor. Although beneficial, previous experience in the fitness industry is not essential. The brand is looking for women who enjoy working with people and have a passion for health and exercise. 

Franchisor support

Successful applicants will be required to attend franchise training and are also expected to complete an Exercise Science certification. During this training, all aspects of the business model will be taught. The franchisor is closely involved with site selection and club set-up, and maintains regular contact through phone calls and club visits to assist with day-to-day operational challenges.
