In 2007, physiologist Ellen Latham brought science and fitness together in a revolutionary way. She called it the Orange Effect and started a U.S. studio to prove the revolution was real. The Orangetheory Fitness franchise is backed by science, tracked by technology, and inspires coach-inspired group workout that are designed to produce results from the inside out. As with any gym routine, the hardest part of our workouts is showing up. But the company makes it simple for you to push yourself, be your personal best and give you more every day. Fast forward to today, and OTF has taken the world by storm to become one of the most well-known fitness franchises on the planet, with more than 1,400 studios in 25 countries globally. The company looks for franchisees looking to become Master Franchisees and Area Developers with a range of skills from leadership to retail and operations, to sales and finance.
Additionally, all of the company's partners are passionate about innovation, driven to bring the latest fitness trends to their market, and excited by a business opportunity with exceptional personal and potential financial reward. At Orangetheory Fitness, members and franchise partners are set up for success. The company's science-based workout is proven to produce results. With more than half a million members and hundreds of locations around the globe, the company is just getting started in our mission to create a healthier world. Due to its rapid growth and strong demand from existing franchise owners, development opportunities are limited. Last year, less than 0.1% of people who inquired had the opportunity to franchise.
