McFit budget gyms move into Spain

McFit, the German discount gym chain has announced its first club in Spain. The discount brand, which is now Germany’s largest club operator (by membership size), now operates clubs in three countries.

McFit was one of only five (from seventeen) German gym brands that opened new clubs during the March – June 2009 quarter, as tracked in the Deloitte Fitness Market report. In 2010, the company will look to open further clubs in major Austrian and Spanish cities. No news of a UK entry yet, but give it time.
