'Next Door by Just Fit' Spends Less Than 10% of Operational Costs on Staffing

In September 2022, the German industry icon Frank Boehme opened a new gym with an innovative concept: The "Next Door by Just Fit" operates largely (93% of the opening hours) without any staff. At the heart of the digitalised gym is the EGYM Ecosystem, which enables fast and effective training around the clock. The concept is so popular with members that the gym is profitable within four months of opening.

Managing Partner
Just Fit & Next Door

"The core of our club Next Door is clearly EGYM, combined with the Fitness Hub - that's what makes this digital workout experience so special.

The success after four months is outstanding. We were already profitable, and people are enthusiastic about working out on this equipment, enthusiastic about using this system."
