TESTIMONIALS

Elzette Schuster

Elzette Schuster

Owner, Curves Akasia

“Being a member myself for 4 years before owning a Curves, having lost 10 kg since joining Curves and reaching and keeping my goal weight for the last 3 years, I know that Curves works; I believe in the brand.

I regained my passion for fitness and love showing women that being fit and healthy can be fun.  I can assist women in not only reaching their weight/fitness goals; but also make them feel good about themselves.

Being healthy, doesn’t only mean looking good it is also about gaining confidence and loving your body the way it is.

Through Curves, I am living my passion!"

Owner, Curves Pierre van Reyneveld

"I started 8 years ago working at Curves as a Trainer. Training woman, helping them achieve their weight loss goals, fighting medical conditions and helping them build their self confidence is a PASSION of mine.

It’s not just another job for me! I needed something more challenging and at a very young age I have bought an exciting club. I have recently opened a second club,  which is growing.

At the age of 28 I am a multi club owner. Buying a Curves club was the best decision I have made and I couldn't be happier. 

With the support from Curves we will grow stronger together."

Owner, Curves Greenacres

“Five years ago I attended a business exposition in London, and the main speaker was Richard Branson. His advice was

"if you are going to work for yourself do something you have a passion for"

So being a health fanatic I decided to buy a gym. The Curves club in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth, came up for sale the week I returned. Having built this club up, I sold it, and immediately opened a brand new one in Greenacres.

In two and a half years we have grown it from zero members to just under 300, and are about to re-locate to bigger/ better premises, but more importantly we have changed the life styles, and figures, of numerous woman."

*We also have opportunities in other African countries.
*Prices may vary per country.

This is dependent on location, fit out and local requirements, we are happy to work with you on finding the best solution for your business.

We can provide guidance on ‘open territories’ suitable for a new Curves club. We recommend that you look to start a new club in a market with population that has a minimum of 40,000 people or more. You should look for premises in areas that have plenty of women passing by daily. You are responsible for finding a location and details should then be submitted to Curves for approval. Curves Africa has the right to refuse a location if we feel it is not in the best interest of the brand and / or your business.

We recommend a minimum premise of 120m2 to get started.

How many staff will I need to employ?

The Curves franchise model is structured to accommodate one full-time employee and two to three part-time employees, with the assumption that the franchisee will take on the full-time role.

Income from each Curves club varies based on many variables such as market size, demographics, efforts made by owners, competency, and economic factors.

The majority of your revenue will be derived from membership fees. Other revenue opportunities include selling Curves products.

That decision is completely up to you. The most successful owners of any small to medium business enterprise work in their business full-time. Depending on your circumstances, and management skills, you will be able to set your own hours in your club.

If you are successful with your application, we will send you the Franchise Disclosure Document with all the terms and conditions clearly outlined.

Yes, we can provide some guidance on selecting your site. Curves will need to approve new locations for new Curves franchises. Finding the right location at the right price will set your business up for success. Your success is our success!

At Curves, the training never stops. Initially we have a mandatory, one-week course called “Club Camp”. Once the first week is completed, we provide daily or weekly assistance via the phone, onsite visits, e-mail communications and various web based programs. Assistance is available for as long as you need it. There is no additional cost for this.

Other fitness clubs and wellness facilities represent Curves competitors. However, we offer a unique fitness and weight loss experience that many cannot compete with. We can help you evaluate your competition and explore the possibilities of adding Curves within your market before making any commitment.
