Emerging Boutique Fitness Concept Focused on Walking and Running Inks Deals to Open in Metro and Surrounding Areas.

IRVINE, Calif. — STRIDE, a boutique fitness franchise that is reinventing the definition of a runner through treadmill-based interval training, announced today it has signed a new agreement which gives the franchise partner the opportunity to bring seven new studios to the greater Denver area. Backed by boutique fitness curator Xponential Fitness, the treadmill studio franchise seeks to create a welcoming, supportive space where anybody can be a walker or runner.

The first of the seven new studios is expected to open its doors in fall 2021 with additional locations soon after. The first two locations are planned to open in the Denver Tech Center and Southeast Aurora. The Denver deal was signed by brothers, Alfonso and Andres Osuna, who will be opening their additional new studios throughout the Denver metro area. While this will be their first franchise business, they own and operate a Colorado-based real estate investment and property management company as well as  a digital marketing company in Monterrey, Mexico. They also have past experience managing fitness centers.

Colorado has consistently ranked as the fittest state in the union for the last decade and yet, there is no single indoor space dedicated to walking, jogging, and running,” said Jeff Stokes, President of STRIDE. “We saw such a great opportunity to reach the people of Denver and help fill the void by providing safe, healthy, beautiful spaces where anyone can walk, jog, run and transform.”

Founded in 2017 in Pasadena, CA, STRIDE taps into the millions of runners and people who identify as walkers in the United States with its treadmill-based workouts that provide a mix of cardio and strength intervals, all performed on STRIDE’s state-of-the-art Woodway Treadmills. Whether someone wants to walk, jog, or run, there are levels for everyone to participate, progress, and prosper. With three core class formats and a unique leveling system that allows clients to take every class as a walker or runner, each individual is able to find the workout that best aligns with their fitness abilities and goals.

In addition to Denver, STRIDE has recently announced several other franchise agreements in markets including  Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Jacksonville Beach, FL, Manhattan Beach, CA and Irvine, CA.

As part of its parent company, Xponential Fitness, and supported by its seasoned corporate team with decades in fitness franchising, STRIDE offers franchisees tremendous support, infrastructure, and knowledge to ensure their success in launching and operating a franchise. The total investment range to open a STRIDE studio is $366,750$546,950. For more information about STRIDE, you can visit https://www.runwithstride.com/franchise.

Brand is One of the Fastest-Growing and Largest in Boutique Yoga Space after Just Two Years of Franchising.

IRVINE, Calif. — The world needs the restorative mind-body benefits of yoga now more than ever, and YogaSix is ready to meet that demand. The fast-growing boutique yoga brand backed by Xponential Fitness announced today it has opened its 100th studio overall and surpassed over 500 signed franchise agreements. Even during a challenging year, YogaSix continues to prove its value to consumers, evidenced by growth with 56 new studios opened since the beginning of 2020 and the onboarding of dozens of new franchisees to continue that momentum.

The recently signed franchise agreements will bring YogaSix to a variety of new markets including Houston, Nashville, Las Vegas, Seattle, and Miami. The company also opened its first studio in Saudi Arabia this past year, with more studios to open in Germany and Austria over the next few years.

The 100th studio is owned by Jarrid & Krissy Danburg and marks their first of three studios in the Pittsburgh area. Krissy, a Pittsburgh native and recently certified yoga instructor has worked 14 years in digital marketing, while Jarrid has over 18 years of professional experience in the NFL and sports and wellness space. The Danburgs reside in McMurray, PA and are the parents to 3 amazing kids. They have been practicing yoga for over a decade and always had an interest in building a business together.

“While yoga has always been popular, the pandemic and other challenges brought on by 2020 have certainly exacerbated the demand for YogaSix’s inclusive and modern take on the practice,” said Lindsay Junk, President of YogaSix. “It has been exciting and extremely rewarding to see our franchise partners get creative in the face of adversity over the past year, encouraging several new entrepreneurs to join the YogaSix family and continue our yoga revival around the world.”

One of YogaSix’s primary goals is to eliminate the exclusive and elitist stigma that often surrounds yoga and revive the practice in a modern way that is inclusive, accessible and empowering. With world-class instruction, YogaSix offers diverse yoga and fitness programming that includes movement and intensity to help customers achieve their fitness goals. Utilizing modern language and offering six core formats – Y6 101, Y6 Restore, Y6 Slow Flow, Y6 Hot, Y6 Power, and Y6 Sculpt Flow – YogaSix’s classes are meant to encompass every fitness level, whether the focus is on deep stretching, stress relief or breaking a sweat.

To continue to build on its momentum, YogaSix is actively seeking qualified franchise partners in various cities across the nation. Headquartered in Irvine, CA, YogaSix is backed by Xponential Fitness, a curator of leading brands in boutique fitness. YogaSix offers potential franchisees the opportunity to be part of an exciting brand with tremendous support, infrastructure and knowledge.
