The Gym Group

Tell us about the Gym Group

The Gym Group was founded by John Treharne in 2008 with the opening of the Hounslow gym. It was a roaring success, swiftly followed by Guildford and Vauxhall. By year three, the company had 20 gyms. There are now 97, with a very active and always increasing pipeline.

What’s your philosophy?

Our vision is to make a healthy way of life easier and more affordable to anyone, no matter what their time commitments or financial situation. The Gym Group’s strategy has deviated little from inception – we have a focus on providing low-cost, excellent, clean and well maintained gym facilities. With low fees, no contracts and 24-hour opening, we offer a comprehensive range of the most up to date resistance and cardiovascular gym equipment with fully qualified staff on hand to help members achieve the most from each and every visit.

Recent successes

The Gym Group has been recognised for the second year running as one of the fastest growing companies in the UK in the 2013 Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100. To be ranked for a successive year in this prestigious league table is a notable achievement. 2013 was an exciting year for the company, with numerous award wins and nominations, but more importantly the Gym Group’s success is the result of the hard work and dedication of the entire team.


The Gym Group was ranked number 25 in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 in 2013 – its second successive entry. It was also ranked 15th in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For.

We’re the only national chain of health clubs to be awarded the Investors in People accreditation. In May 2013, John Treharne was named CEO of the Year in the South East BVCA Awards. And in August 2013, the Gym Group was named as a national champion and will represent the UK in the prestigious 2013/14 European Business Awards programme.
