Commenting on the opening of Plus Fitness 24/7 Mumbai Central, franchisee Alfan Lakdawalla stated “I am very passionate about helping people to get fit and healthy so when I saw the Plus Fitness franchise model and got to understand their strong culture and previous business success I was confident that buying a Plus Fitness was the best decision for me.

“For many people joining a gym can be an intimidating experience (but) our gym isn’t intimidating and we are all about welcoming everyone no matter what their experience in using gyms is and teaching them how to use all of our equipment and to become a healthier happier person.

“As a brand we are committed to ‘Working Towards A Healthier India’ and we are proud of our goal and what we are achieving here.”

“The club has been well received by the local community and has generated Rs 45,00o,000 (INR 45 lakhs/US$65,000) in its pre-sale alone representing 35% of the total investment.

“This has motivated Alfan to reinvest into business straight away and he is already looking for property for his second club in Mumbai.”
