This listing represents a unique opportunity to purchase a three-unit area franchise development contract at half the price that you could purchase it from the Franchisor.  The current owner initially bought the development agreement with a partner who was to provide the financing for the development of the facilities.  The financial partner backed out of their agreement after the purchase of the franchise development agreement was signed.  Since the current owner lost his financial backing he has been forced to put the development agreement on the market in order to recoup some of his initial investment. 


Founded in 2014, Tapout Fitness is part of the Tapout brand family. Tapout is owned and operated by two powerhouse brands; Authentic Brands Group (ABG), a brand development, marketing and entertainment company, which owns a global portfolio of over 30 lifestyles, sports, celebrity and entertainment brands, and World Wrestling Entertainment the preeminent provider of wrestling-based entertainment.  Currently, they have more than 25 locations in development in the United States, and plan to have more than 500 domestically and internationally over the next 5 years.  There are currently Tapout Fitness locations in San Antonio and Austin, Texas.

What is Tapout Fitness?  The clubs feature Tapout Fitness branded boxing, kickboxing, boot camp and high intensity interval training (HIIT) classes that are complemented by some of today’s hottest group fitness programming.  Tapout Martial Arts, the progressive belt-ranking program for kids and adults, is their modern approach to traditional martial arts.  Master Instructors lead every class. Plus, members can work with them for one-on-one personal training sessions. Their energy, enthusiasm and expertise make working out fun and get you results.  If clients want to work out on their own, they can experience the proprietary “Tapout 20”, a drop-in-anytime, 20-minute, circuit-based HIIT training course. Select locations also have a full range of state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment. Some clubs are even open 24 hours a day, so you’ll never miss a workout.
