The first Body20 Studio originated in 2013 and Body20 has since expanded to over 60 locations in Southern Africa, Benelux, USA, Australia and Mauritius.


With great passion and full understanding of the industry, it became obvious that the use Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology is one of the fastest growing fitness movements globally as more people are introduced to this form of training. By utilising EMS within its unique and proprietary fitness programmes, Bertus Albertse then compiled the business system on which this first Studio had been established, being the foundation of the franchise business, and incorporated the Franchisor, in order to grow and expand this business model through the franchising model.


Body20 is a rapidly growing franchise operation within the fitness industry, and it provides a high return on investment thanks to strong-unit economics and streamlined operations. The combination of state of the art and exclusive wireless EMS Technology, proprietary and unique programmes, modern personal training and rapid fitness results makes Body20 the most exciting franchise opportunity in fitness this decade.


EMS gets you fit and healthy in a short period of time and keeps your body in shape. This exclusive beauty and sports technology designed in Spain and leverages the effect of your workout to another level. Muscle structure gets strengthened, fat cells get burnt effectively and the joints are spared.


Body20 provides turn-key Body20 EMS studios to capture huge customer demand and also supplies systems and support to ensure on-going success.


The appeal of a stronger, fitter you in only 20 minutes per week attracts potential members, while the expertly designed layout of each studio appeals to investors by utilising space and resources efficiently, so that owners are not paying for space and utilities that go unused.

Along with the strategic membership price, Body20 retains members through additional offerings, which provides owners with multiple revenue streams.
