How Much Does It Cost To Open An ISI® Franchise

ISI® Elite Training is an affordable opportunity in the $22+ billion boutique fitness industry

When you think of a boutique fitness franchise, you might think of a large space with a sea of equipment – or to put it into business terms, a tremendous amount of overhead.

ISI® Elite Training is designed to be the exact opposite.

The total investment to open an ISI® Elite Training franchise ranges from $327,400-$687,000, which makes us one of the more affordable opportunities in the boutique fitness franchise industry.

Everything about the ISI® Elite Training business model is designed to keep both the initial investment and ongoing costs affordable. Our facilities require only a small footprint typically between 2,400-3,200sq. ft., which means that we’re able to secure top real-estate at affordable rates.

“This model is very scalable,” says Adam Rice, Founder & CEO. “Our franchise owners may start with one location, but they quickly start looking at opening more once they see how scalable the business model is. With a low cost equipment package, simple build-out, and minimal staffing, there’s no wonder why the majority of our franchise owners are or will be multi-unit owners.”

ISI® Elite Training is a fixed cost model

One of the main reasons people franchise with ISI® Elite Training is because it’s a fixed cost model. Your overhead costs will remain the same no matter how many members you acquire, and once the number of members exceeds your overhead costs, the profit-potential becomes exponential.

“The business model benefits from fixed ongoing costs,” says Amanda Hall, COO. “As you grow, the model remains very simple, and it’s very easy to create layers of leadership within your business to help you scale effectively. The more facilities you open, the more lives you get to impact, and that’s the core of what this business is all about.”

Do you offer financing?

While we don’t offer direct access to financing, we do have relationships with third-party lenders who can help you secure the funds necessary to open your business.
