energie Fitness Franchise

A highlight of the énergie event calendar, Progress brings Franchisees, Club Managers, suppliers, sponsors and the énergie Central team together to enjoy a one-day conference. This event runs in addition to our November Conference, évolution, at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

This year’s Progress Conference followed a theme of Into the Future, and the action-packed agenda allowed us to showcase many of the exciting new developments that are taking place, designed to enhance the front-end experience of the members of our clubs and the operations of our Franchisees businesses.

The event was well received by Franchisees, with a snapshot of some of the feedback below:

“Thank you for always putting on great days like this. Such a great opportunity to see others we know in the network and see so many new faces. Really enjoy it and looking forward to évolution.”

“Events are always so slick, well laid out, lighting always bang on, and loved the team hugs on the way into the building. We are a family! Can never fault the organisation that goes into these days. Thank you énergie.”

“Very much looking forward to these changes being rolled out!”

“Hearing other people’s experiences was really inspiring.”
