Jetts 24 Hour Fitness, the fastest-growing fitness chain in Thailand, now has a total of 22 clubs up and running in the country in a testament to its philosophy of bringing exercise opportunities to people with the utmost ease of convenience. Thailand's leading 24-hour fitness chain is bullish on its ambitious 5-year growth plan by help of innovative exercise solutions that suit various lifestyles, fitness needs and demographics.

"We have embarked on a journey of fast-paced expansion in Thailand since early 2018 and continue to adhere to a forward-looking growth plan. As a result, we already have a total of 22 clubs up and running with a dozen more in the works," said Michael David Lamb, Asia CEO of Jetts 24 Hour Fitness. "With 17 clubs in Bangkok, 2 in Nonthaburi, 2 in Pattaya and 1 in Korat, we are the fastest-growing fitness operator in Thailand with the unmatched expansion capability of an average of one new club per month. This is record-breaking growth in the history not only of the Thai fitness industry, but the entire Asian region. We are the largest 24-hour fitness chain in the country with a market share of 60%, and will shortly have more clubs than any other operator."

A recent study shows that over 70% of health club members in Bangkok go to the gym 2-6 times a week, reflecting that city people appreciate an easily accessible gym that is available in their daily touchpoints such as work, school, and home. Jetts has already covered the city center of Bangkok and is now aggressively expanding into the suburbs as well as other densely populated provinces to be closer to people's homes and even better meet their needs.

"Looking forward, we plan to open no fewer than 12 new clubs a year, but the reality is that it could be 16-18 clubs a year based on our current rate. With a focus on prime locations that provide easy access from BTS and MRT stations, all of our clubs are situated in densely populated commercial and residential areas in Bangkok and major provinces across Thailand," Lamb said. "In the first half of 2020, we will open 10 new clubs, with 7 in Bangkok, 1 in Chiang Mai, 1 in Phuket and another 1 in Korat making for a total of 32 clubs across Thailand. We believe, as we previously said, that a total of 100 clubs in Thailand in 5 years is eminently within reach."

The 7 new clubs in Bangkok are all conveniently located along BTS and MRT lines. They include Donki Mall club near BTS Ekamai, Victory Hub club near BTS Victory Monument, I'm China Town club near MRT Wat Mangkon, Index Living Mall club on Rama II Road and SJ Infinite club near MRT Jatujak and BTS Mochit. Apart from Bangkok, the chain's new club in Phuket is located in Central Festival, the new club in Chiang Mai is at One Nimman, a leading lifestyle destination in the heart of Chiang Mai town, and the second club in Korat is at Save One.

"Jetts understands that fitness is a commodity and many people love to engage in a variety of physical activities. We have incessantly been sharpening our competitive edges so as to differentiate ourselves through top-of-the-line performance equipment for solo gym days, while still offering packed schedules with a great variety of group exercises," said Lamb.

With today's fast-paced lifestyles across a wide demographic landscape, Jetts is catering to an increasing number of time-constrained and variety-seeking adults as well as older people who remain active and physically fit. Jetts strives to introduce new fitness solutions that fit the needs of all its various members, such as fitness programs for older adults that incorporate proper care and level of intensity for safe and effective physical health exercises.
