Fitstop Named #2 on AFR Fast 100!

Fitstop has been named #2 on the AFR Fast 100 list and we could not be more proud, excited or just grateful for our Fitstop community over the past 5 years. 

We’re blown away to be recognised amongst some other incredible businesses! Of course, like anything, we have our business owners, their team members and our Fitstoppers to thank for this. We really mean it when we say our community is special; their passion for all things Fitstop is what makes the Fitstop difference known and able to successfully launch across Australia, New Zealand and now expediting our USA launch!

We can safely say this Brisbane-born Australian franchise business is ready for some huge plans in 2023 and now the world knows it too!

Fitstop was born from a pure focus on athletic performance that was gained through working with professional athletes. With a clear vision, ny wife Rebecca decided to stop at nothing by selling her car to fund the first Fitstop location in Brisbane, Australia. 

This sacrifice is what brought the Fitstop dream to life and set the foundation for the Fitstop franchise. Now, Fitstop is the home of functional fitness, a group fitness model that provides leading strength and conditioning training that unleashes the inner athlete in everyone. 

When it comes down to it, Fitstop’s athlete-inspired, team-based training has created what we believe are some of the strongest communities in the industry that has skyrocketed Fitstop as a global brand. This is because our Fitstoppers are bought along the journey that allows them to feel part of something bigger and feel proud to promote our brand. 


Fitstop franchising launched in 2017 with a clear growth mission; create a world-class business. By doubling down on systems, processes, execution, building world-class systems and keeping our brand DNA in the process, we’ve earned the right to play on a global scale. 


We invested in getting the brilliant basics right before deep diving into expansion which goes against what’s  often communicated in franchising. Yet for us, it’s all about knowing our systems and processes are industry-leading and scalable, and that our tech stack could excel with us. That’s why with close to 100 locations strong; our brand is loved, our mission is known and our systems and processes will support us to 1000 locations and well beyond, just as they have to 100. 

So now, we celebrate but we also look at 2023 as we’re always hungry for more. We’re excited for all that’s to come for our one-of-a-kind technology. It all starts with the custom-built Fitstop App, which controls the entire member journey whilst linking to an ecosystem of performance tools for franchise owners to grow their businesses. 

Being custom-built and not owned by third parties has allowed Fitstop to be adaptive, strategic and will elevate our member experience, education, performance and gamification to be industry-leading.

Without giving too much away, 2023 will see Fitstop take that next level in the tech space, whilst also welcoming a record number of new communities and business owners into the Fitstop family. 

2023 - we’re ready for you!
