While in the past it has worked with both of the PureGym Group’s major brands - PureGym in the UK and Fitness World in Denmark - this new contract represents a complete reset of arrangements for the future.
After what has clearly been a challenging time for the gyms and fitness industry, this partnership will help the PureGym Group minimise risk and disruption to both of the Group’s major business units and will provide the Group’s operations in Denmark and Switzerland with an accelerated route to using the full suite of features created on the Exerp software as a service platform.

Announcing the partnership, Exerp Chief Executive, Rémi Nodet stated “we are delighted to be recommitting to our partnership with the PureGym Group. We will be providing PureGym Group with a full suite of leading edge, cloud-based software services coupled to ongoing professional development support.
“We first worked with PureGym when the business had just 50 sites and are proud to have contributed to the Group’s growth to over 500 sites now.
“We have grown substantially over this time, but we have never lost track of the importance of the fundamentals: reliable, secure software; a highly scalable platform; and a complete dedication to customer service. We look forward to applying our versatile, scalable and proven software to supporting the Group as it grows to 1000 sites and beyond.”
PureGym Chief Executive, Humphrey Cobbold added “PureGym Group is one of a small number of “Premier League” operators in the rapidly developing global budget gym industry and the effective application of technology to every aspect of our business is critical to our success.
“We have worked with Exerp for many years, but this new, forward-looking partnership represents a complete reset of our technical strategic and commercial arrangements.
“The application of technology, data, business information and increasingly AI is and always has been critical to our business. This renewed mutual commitment with Exerp is a critical future component of our strategy and we look forward to many years of successful collaboration.”
