Mayweather Jr. Makes Boxing + Fitness Franchise Offer: Can You Refuse?

By Barry Janoff

July 25, 2018: Like The Godfather, Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants to make an offer at least some people can’t refuse.

To coincide with the Franchise Grand Opening event on July 28 atf the flagship location for Mayweather Boxing + Fitness —  “a best-in-class fitness experience created by the most successful boxer of all time” — Mayweather Jr. is offering franchises “to qualified individuals” with two options.

Open a new Mayweather Boxing + Fitness studio location “for as little as $200,000” or convert an existing fitness business into a Mayweather Boxing + Fitness studio “for as little as $70,000.”

According to Mayweather Jr., to demonstrate his “passion to help businesses and support the community,” he will waive “the entire franchise fee to help existing qualified gyms convert their business into a Mayweather Boxing + Fitness studio.”

Mayweather Jr. unveiled the global business venture and its structured franchise model following his victorious fight against Conor McGregor in August 2017.  The Los Angeles location opened in late January.

"We're looking for motivated people who share our passion for bringing best-in-class fitness to the world stage," Mayweather Jr. said in a statement. "Our goal is to have Mayweather Boxing & Fitness studios in neighborhoods all over the world, providing fitness programs for anyone who wants to train more effectively."

Mayweather Jr. doesn’t need the money, but he likes the money, which is why he is No. 1 on the lists of not just the World’s Highest-Paid Athletes but Highest-Paid Celebrities from Forbes, with $275 million in winnings and another $10 million from endorsements in 2017, mostly associated with the McGregor bout.

Not all of it goes into his lavish lifestyle. He founded and is a major supporter of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation, whose mission is to ”empower community alliances, impact youth leadership, promote health and wellness, and strengthen family foundations through community development, entrepreneurialism, and education resulting in a wholesome community.

According to Mayweather Jr., “Emblematic of (my) passion for family, fitness and community, the new enterprise is grounded in the philosophy that fitness levels shouldn't be determined by socioeconomic status, and that everyone should have access to, and benefit from, elite fitness resources.”

The Los Angeles location supports the Gloves Over Guns youth program by providing  “mentoring and coaching for youth in school affected by gangs, crime and peer pressure.”

"Boxing fitness is an on-trend, accessible and highly effective workout," James Williams, CEO of Mayweather Boxing & Fitness, said in a statement.

"With the launch of our franchise program, we are providing entrepreneurs across the world with a system to capitalize on the rapid increase in demand of boxing group fitness, all under the brand that represents the gold standard in boxing. “

"Fitness levels shouldn't be determined by socioeconomic status . . . everyone should have access to, and benefit from, elite fitness resources.”

Williams said the flagship location “has experienced tremendous success and became profitable within its first three months of opening.

“This is a testament to the business infrastructure we have in place, which we are now rolling out through our franchise program,” said Williams.

According to Mayweather Boxing + Fitness, each studio will offer class-based boxing and functional training workouts for all levels of fitness, along with advanced tech features, including individual Virtual Reality sessions, heart rate monitoring and daily workout videos.

The undefeated (50-0) boxer said he is revealing for the first time his “training and fitness methods that kept him on top of the boxing profession for more than 20 years.”

The VR experience features a virtual Mayweather Jr. coaching individual users through routines that “kept him at the top of his game throughout his boxing career, providing an incredibly fun and effective cardio workout.”

The Mayweather Boxing + Fitness flagship studio, located on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, is scheduled to have its Franchise Grand Opening event July 28 (8 AM PT) with a public event including a ribbon cutting ceremony, giveaways and classes.
