“Our goal is to be the world’s leading fitness company and best solution,” he commented Managing partner, German Gussakovskiy. “Annual unit sales are in the half-million dollar range, with margins of 55 percent compared to the fitness industry average of 9.6 percent, thanks to low capital expenditures and minimal overhead. Our niche focus on women just means we have a competitive advantage in a $37 billion market that is expected to grow at around 5 percent, making TOPSTRETCHING an extremely attractive investment proposition.”

Its distinctive and science-based methodology focuses on stretching, HIIT and AEROSTRETCHING training with over 20 different training systems that never repeat the same workout, offering a totally immersive experience that is both relaxing, fun and intense and delivers guaranteed results.

“We’re a special community that unites and empowers women who aren’t comfortable with commercial or ‘for-all’ gyms that offer little innovation and poor results,” she said Dmytro Kanyuk, Managing Partner. “From an investment perspective, our high-margin, low payback model is also supported by a suite of solutions and apps including an intranet, bespoke training programs and methodologies, our online nutrition portal, corporate ERP support and CRM with data analysis and mapping models. as well as a vast network of operational support from the training hub to help our franchisees strengthen their businesses to access top talent across the board.”

Franchise Director Says “With more than five times the typical margins in the fitness sector, TOPSTRETCHING far outperforms all of its closest competitors thanks to its flexible business model and immense social media reach, fulfilling my role of expanding the franchise from its current 33 locations to 1,000 can in just five years”.
