Slim and Tone Women's Fitness Franchise Information:

Find out how Slim and Tone is taking on Curves in creating the next generation of Express Fitness clubs for women! And you can be part of our success!

Slim and Tone is one of the most exciting franchise opportunities in business today. More than ever, women need exercise and a refuge from the stress they face daily. You can offer that refuge and be rewarded for it. Everyday, women are realizing that diets alone don't work and how important it is to exercise. The question is where and how.

Conventional exercise and health clubs may be readily available in your area, but these facilities are not necessarily solutions that work for most women. Many feel intimidated by a co-ed facility and don't have the time. Women of all ages and fitness abilities, overweight women and women with disabilities, in particular, need an exercise facility that is safe, quick, comfortable, and supportive and one that meets their unique needs. The solution is a women's-only fitness club! Curves for Women popularized the trend Slim and Tone has adapted and improved upon the concept.

COMPARE the Slim and Tone package to others. No other competitor is in a position to offer this much:

As the exercise division of NutriSystem, a leader in the weight loss market, only Slim and Tone can offer you this additional revenue potential in your club! We have the advantage of:
  • The opportunity to access the extensive list of NutriSystem customers through cross marketing programs
  • And, as a consumer products company, NutriSystem can also design products just for Slim and Tone!
The financial stability and marketing opportunities that a public company offers will translate in to more success for you.

We have Master Franchisees in Scandinavia, New Zealand, and China. We want to add clubs in those areas and are seeking new partners all over the world. Contact us now and see how we can help you own your own territory...

Unlike other Express Fitness franchises with a ten-year term, Slim and Tone offers a more flexible five-year term with an option to renew at the end of the period. We also offer more risk-free options in the unlikely event your business ceases operation during the term of your contract. Slim and Tone is also more flexible in what you can and cannot do in your club. From interior decor to the added services that you may want to offer, we give you the support and latitude you need to make your business a success in your local area.

A concept developed for women… by a woman! Betsy Ludlow, our founder and president, is a prior owner of three Slim and Tone clubs. As an 18-year veteran at American Express, she was a senior vice president responsible for marketing their line of charge and credit cards. She holds a Masters of Business Administration from the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She's a wife, a mother and a businesswoman who changed her life at age 50, abandoning the corporate world so that she could devote her second career to women's health and wellness.

The express workout category is hot! But so is the competition to attract women into your club. More than ever, a good marketing strategy is what is needed to create a club that thrives with a growing active membership. We have the expertise, the materials and the experience to make the difference!

Slim and Tone offers the highest quality hydraulic resistance machines, and an easy to learn, express exercise format. Our hydraulic equipment has 9 settings that let you progress at a level that is appropriate for you. Other systems use equipment with only one setting. With heavier steel-gauge construction, it is sturdier and safer to use.

Perhaps the most compelling reason of all is our unique express workout program designed exclusively for Slim and Tone. Our program will take the women's fitness category to the next generation, and you can be part of it! The Slim and Tone Personal Best program… designed by a team of female fitness experts…. with women of all ages and exercise abilities foremost in mind!
