The equipment, instruction, and soundtracks are designed just for customers and their specific 30 Minute Hit locations.
A 30 Minute Hit franchise location is designed to be bright and vibrant. It should be a place where customers can leave their day-to-day stresses behind, allowing them to concentrate on themselves.

What Might Make a 30 Minute Hit Franchise a Good Choice?
As the name suggests, the 30 Minute Hit training is just 30 minutes of high-intensity interval training, also known as HIIT. There is no need to rush to a gym and book classes as classes are expected to run every 30 minutes with certified trainers.
Franchisees should have the enthusiasm and passion for fitness and well-being. You will be given and taught a simple template to work from, potentially giving you all you need to run a growing business. If this high-energy environment sounds like you, you may be a good fit for the 30 Minute Hit brand.
