Contours Express Gym Franchise Information:
is a successful franchiser of specialized women's gyms, in the fast-growing, billion-dollar fitness industry. We're "The Better Idea in Women's Gyms" because, unlike competitors who use hydraulic equipment, our centers use real weights, for real (and better) results.

Our workout ensures that members of every fitness level can strengthen, shape and tone all their major muscle groups, while improving their cardiovascular health, in only 29-minutes.
We Make It Easy and Affordable to Own
One of America's Fastest-Growing Franchises!
Owning a successful Contours Express franchise doesn't take experience in the fitness industry or even experience running your own business. Many of our franchise owners are former teachers and nurses, with little or no business experience. The secret to our success—and to yours—lies in our proven fitness system designed especially for women, and in the ongoing support you'll receive from Contours Express professionals.
- We provide you with the best opportunity for success. About 90% of franchises are still in operation after 10 years, while 82% of independent businesses have failed in the same time period.
- It's affordable. You can open a typical Contours Express franchise for about $55,000. Our initial franchise fee of $18,000 is one of the most affordable in the franchising industry.
- You're supported every step of the way. Our executive team has more than 50 years of combined experience in the fitness industry. From site selection and lease negotiations to marketing materials and training in exercise techniques, we'll provide you with all the tools you need to succeed.
- You'll be joining more than 500 franchisees around the world. In 2004, Small Business Opportunities Magazine ranked Contours Express as the "Number 1 business to start."
- You'll be taking control of your future—and helping women get fit! A Contours Express franchise can be profitable with as few as 200 members, in a town with a population of just 7,000!
