Market & Drivers

The discount fitness segment generates the highest growth rates within the dynamic German fitness market. It benefits significantly from the megatrend towards lifestyle and increased health awareness, an increasing penetration rate (share of fitness members to population) and a relatively low share of fitness chains in Germany.

NORD Holding’s Participation

NORD Holding acquired a majority share in 2014. As a financially strong partner NORD Holding has since then pushed the mostly organic growth course from 10 to more than 30 clubs. The strategic focus is to create a superior fitness concept and its consistent expansion.

Efficient, cooperative and profitable best describe my collaboration with NORD Holding. Long before our alliance, during negotiations in 2012, NORD Holding's professional and human approach had me convinced. As the Managing Partner of the jumpers group I enjoy complete freedom of action in business operations and can decisively shape the rollout of our successful discount fitness chain. In building new structures within the company, we get conceptual and operational support from NORD Holding and can also draw on an extensive and professional network. A strong team for the future!
