Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy health & fitness centre in Sunderland, Tyne & Wear.

The business was established by our client in 1998 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's other business interests. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 55,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 91%.

The gym offers an extensive range of weights equipment, free weights, treadmills, rowing machines etc. which is worth over 100,000. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the equipment and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel the turnover could be increased by a hands on owner being in place and extending the opening hours, especially at weekends, as it is currently being run at a pace to suit out client. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. The business would further benefit from the launch of a website to promote the service offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this profitable gym business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
