Tell us the key facts about your business You Fit is a leisure and hotel management company, which was launched in 2018 by Kew Green Hotels. We’ve got a portfolio of 22 clubs across the UK and 15,000 members. Each site has a gym, wetside facilities and group exercise studios, while selected locations also have spas. Talk to us about the launch of your health club management contracting service Up until now the development of You Fit has been completely dependent on us growing the wider hotel portfolio of Kew Green through the acquisition of hotels with health club and spa facilities. We’ve realised there’s an opportunity for other hotels to benefit from the operational and commercial set-up of becoming part of a larger branded group such as ours. We also see opportunities in the independent health club sector. As a result, we plan to grow the number of You Fit clubs beyond what we could achieve with the expansion of our own company, by branching out to work with investors, owners and operators who can benefit from adopting the You Fit brand and processes. We’re also aware health club, leisure and spa operations are often secondary to the core business of hotels and outside the scope of some hoteliers. Our plan is to take the strain of running a health club and spa business, while providing a service that complements the hotel operation.
