Body Audit NZ is bringing a new perspective to health tracking across the country
When a mobile health business can draw a crowd in Lumsden on a Sunday afternoon, you know that it’s something special. The small town between Te Anau and Gore is one of the regular stops for the Body Audit unit and attracts 25 people or more each time. ‘It’s not only in the big cities that people want to track their health and monitor their fitness,’ points out Michelle Rosewarne, ‘and that means we’re now looking for franchisees everywhere.’
Michelle is one of the founders of Body Audit, which provides a body composition testing service to individuals, gyms, clinics and companies using state-of-the-art technology. ‘We encourage people to understand and work with their own body composition because, as we know, one size does not fit all.
‘The Body Audit process scans and measures body composition changes in fat mass, muscle mass and visceral fat (the dangerous fat around organs), as well as assessing bone mineral estimates, total body water, fitness age, segmental analysis and much more. Our analysers use a testing method called Bioelectrical Impedance (BIA) which is widely used in public health, medical, fitness, sports training, weight loss and other sectors. The result is a process that helps people understand what really works for them when it comes to their personal health and fitness and shows how small changes can make a really big difference.’
Michelle and her business partner Kim Brown, who both have business and management backgrounds, were looking for something new when they met at an exercise class in 2011. After the birth of her fourth child, Kim realised her health and fitness were in need of a serious change. She had the chance to do a similar test which changed her life, and the friends quickly realised they needed to share this with others.
‘In three short years, Body Audit has grown into a highly-professional business which is far bigger than we ever imagined,’ says Michelle. As well as individuals, gyms and clinics, our clients now include some of the biggest corporates in the country, who see the benefits of having a healthier workforce. It means a solid base of opportunity for franchisees.’
The Body Audit franchise has been developed by one of the South Island’s best-known franchise consultants to take the business throughout New Zealand. A pilot operation in Invercargill has ‘gone off like a rocket,’ says Michelle, and now the company is looking for franchisees nationwide.
‘It’s a mobile business so it’s home-based, with very low overheads. Based on our experience to date, franchisees have the potential to achieve six-figure earnings. The total investment, including a fully-equipped van, is around $100,000 (although the van could be leased).
‘This is a smart business, with everything in place including subscription and booking software to help you maximise your time. Hours are flexible: gyms are mostly morning, evening or weekends, corporates in the day time, so you can work when you want or cover all the bases with a partner or assistant. As the business grows, you can also add extra machines.’
‘There are no qualifications needed and we provide full training,’ Michelle says. ‘The ideal candidates will have a genuine passion for health, fitness and customer service, and have the drive and ambition to build their own successful business. Above all, they need to be able to communicate with people from all walks of life and in all states of health. Body Audit isn’t just for gym goers; it’s a valuable tool for anyone looking to improve their health or fitness.
‘If you’re looking for a rewarding business opportunity that offers flexibility, low overheads, recurring incomes and doesn’t rely on clients coming to you, contact me now and find out more about Body Audit.’
