Australia Sports Institute looks to expand franchise network of Pilates training centres
April 2, 2024

Experienced Pilates training provider Australia Sports Institute is looking to expand in both Australia and Dubai, offering regional master franchise and partnership opportunities.

Founded in Australia but active in Türkiye over the last six years, Australia Sports Institute (ASI) currently has 12 centres in Türkiye - mainly in Ankara and Istanbul - and is set to open its first facility in Dubai.

Over the last five years, Australia Sports Institute (ASI) has trained 7861 students, including more than 4000 students in 2023, while a further 2895 of whom returned to take a second course.

In Australia, ASI is looking to engage a regional master franchisee/partner - preferably in the Perth greater metropolitan area - to be part of a venture that has major growth plans.

ASI founder Volkan Acar explains “by internalising the motto ‘The more you dream, the further you go’, we argue that there is nothing you that you cannot do.

“When you exceed your own limits, you can go much further than your dreams. Therefore, taking you beyond your dreams.”

Explaining the business opportunity, Acar notes “we are looking for someone who has a gym or is looking to open a gym or fitness training centre with the opportunity of partnering/affiliating with ASI in Australia.”
