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 for life. You can change your life, too, with a WALX franchise.

Why, should I choose WALX?

WALX offers you a robust business model, to help you start and grow your own profitable business, through monthly membership fees, just like a health club. As you become established, you will have the opportunity to develop your business further, by incorporating more of the WALX programmes for your members.

Our programmes aren’t just a walk, they offer so much more. Professionally designed around our various types of walks, similar to health club fitness programmes, they take into account personal fitness levels and goals. Adding interest and value keeps our members engaged in their WALX communities and coming back month after month.

As part of Exercise Anywhere Ltd. WALX is based on a delivery model which is already proving successful, nationwide under the Nordic Walking UK banner. WALX has a much wider appeal and the opportunities are exciting. The Franchise Support Team has more than 100 collective years’ experience in leisure, fitness and outdoor industries. They know how to inspire enjoyment, results and sociability when it comes to physical activity.

There are already gyms on every corner, why will my new business be any different?

Despite the fitness industry being worth over £4.9bn per annum, it still only attracts 14.9% of the adult population.

Most people know they need to be healthier. Many have a desire to want to do more; But most people would prefer to exercise outdoors and many feel uncomfortable in a gym or at health club. With a WALX Franchise, you can engage with typically up to 20% of the population in your Territory, with little competition.

Join our mission to...

Make physical activity accessible, affordable and appealing

Encourage all ages and abilities to enjoy the power of nature

Transform lives, encourage diversity and form positive partnerships

Develop a safe and effective fitness and walking membership club
