Start your own outdoor health club business today.

At WALX, we are looking for people who are ready to start their own business and make a real step change. In partnership with our franchisees, we believe we can have a huge impact on the health of this nation, changing the way people exercise. By providing innovative walking-based programmes delivered by inspiring Masters, Coaches and Guides, we can mutually ensure our members make a change in life.

Why should I choose WALX?

WALX offers you a fully supportive, robust, membership-based business model, just like a Health Club. It provides the flexibility in how you manage your business. If you prefer to be more hands-on, as you establish yourself, you will have the opportunity to develop your business further, by incorporating more of the WALX programmes to expand.

Your role can then become more managerial without losing the fun of being outdoors and still grow a robust and profitable business.

Our programmes aren’t just a walk, they offer so much more. Professionally designed around our walking and fitness activities, WALX takes into account members’ personal fitness levels and goals. Adding interest, progression and value keeps them engaged in their local WALX groups so they remain a member.

  • An exclusive area
  • Training in how to set up, manage and run your own business
