Thursday 11th August marked the opening of the brand new Fit4less franchise in Gdańsk, Poland. Crowds gathered outside, eagerly awaiting a first glimpse of the brand new low-cost fitness facility and the first in Poland for the Fit4less brand.
A packed out grand opening had a real party feel to it and we captured some of the action on video. Click play on the the video below as énergie Group Chairman and CEO Jan Spaticchia introduces the new gym and takes you a brief trip inside.
Fit4less Gdańsk is owned by UK entrepreneurs and serial franchisees, Torban Cane and Jeremy Rose, current owners of Fit4less, Kilburn and part owners of Fit4less, Highbury.
The gym is managed by Karolina Szostek and Marcin Szostek - originally from Poland, who have returned to their home country having worked for Torban and Jeremy in the UK for over 10 years. It’s a great story and you can clearly see Marcin’s delight as he cuts the ribbon to officially declare the gym open. Watch as Franchisee Torban Cane addresses locals ahead of the ribbon cutting.
Could opening a Fit4less gym be a life-changing moment for you?
The opening of Fit4less Gdańsk was a significant moment in the lives of all involved. For Franchisees Jeremy and Torban it marked the international expansion of their Fit4less portfolio. For Club Managers Karolina and Marcin, it represented the opportunity to return to their home country, head-up an exciting new project and continue their strong relationship with their current employers. And finally, for Master Franchisees Jonny and Julian it marked the first success following a commitment to bring the Fit4less brand to Poland and a platform that will spark the opening of future Fit4less clubs in the territory.
