About Us

Lucille Roberts pioneered the women's-only health club industry category more than 40 years ago. Today, there are more than 40 Lucille Roberts Womens Fitness locations with an average of 1,500 new members signing up every week. Each Lucille Roberts franchise requires less of a real estate footprint in comparison to big box health clubs, which translates to a smaller investment and reduced operating costs.

Lucille Roberts 01

Our success is a result of our low membership fees with no contracts, our smaller facility size (approximately 4,500 to 6,000 square feet) and our location in centers with national, daily-need and female-oriented retailers in both suburban and metro markets.

But our innovations as a women's fitness center don't stop there:

  • First to implement step classes, ball classes, kickboxing and Tai-Bo
  • Only health club to formally partner with Zumba
  • One of the most effective personal training programs across the industry

Also, franchisees should share a common goal with Lucille Roberts, which includes building a strong brand and a profitable business in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
