The Top 12 Franchises on Club Industry's 2019 Top 100 Clubs List

This photo gallery highlights the fitness franchisors that appeared on the 2019 Top 100 Clubs list based on their 2018 corporate-owned club revenue and franchisee-fee revenue. For the franchisors who also reported revenue of their franchisees for a full brand revenue total, that number has been listed separately.

For example, 9Round, Simpsonville, South Carolina, ranked No. 46 on the Top 100 Clubs list with $22.79 million in corporate-owned club revenue and revenue from franchise fees. However, the company also reported $142 million in total franchise revenue, which includes revenue from corporate-owned clubs, franchisee fees and revenue from each franchise in 2018. 

Please note that the revenue for both numbers are self-reported, so accuracy of the fulll brand revenue is contingent upon the franchisor having a full reporting from each franchisee. Some of the franchisors did not report the revenue figure that includes franchisee revenue. 

Club Industry calculates the annual Top 100 Clubs list using only corporate-owned club revenue and franchisee fees for franchised brands because each franchisee can submit to be on the list as its own entity.

In this gallery, Club Industry is listing each brand in the order in which they appeared on the full Top 100 Clubs list, even if their full revenue (including franchisee revenue) would actually rank them higher.

Note: This ranking is based solely on 2018 revenue and no other criteria.
