Former India pacer Zaheer Khan is planning to set up around 15 exclusive ProSport Fitness centres in the next two years.
The fitness chain is also in talks with realty developers and hospitals to take up management of physiotherapy units in hospitals and consultancy and management of gyms in India.
"We are expanding with a multi-pronged strategy including franchise model, company-owned centres and alliances with hospitals and developers. ProSport has a holistic approach to fitness in general and we will cater to various segments. In the next two years, we are looking to set up around 15 fitness centres and currently our geographical focus would be the western region," Zaheer Khan, Founder, ProSport Fitness, was quoted as saying by The Economic Times.
The former ace cricketer opened first ProSport Fitness at Lower Parel in Mumbai in 2014. Now, it has launched one more fitness hub in Nashik. The company will open a fitness centre in Pune and Mumbai each in the next few months. It is planning to expand in tier II cities by offering professionally managed physiotherapy and injury management services currently not available.
"We are looking at the right kind of alliance and waiting for the right partner to join if the vision is aligning. We are looking to raise Rs 15-20 crore but until we get the right partner, the growth will be self-financed," Khan adds further.
The brand is backed by the expertise of leading professionals from the world of fitness training, physiotherapy and injury management and nutritional counseling and follows a globally proven fitness training module and serves as a robust platform to maximise individual potential in sports or daily life.
