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 25,000 people or more. You should look for premises close to residential areas. You are responsible for finding a location and details should then be submitted to Curves for approval. Curves International 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. You will receive additional guidelines after your application.
