About the Opportunity

The Clothesline Diet Club is an amazing unique Fitness and Weight Loss Gym that is not exclusively for ladies, but whose membership is predominantly female.
Until 1999 Karen was a stay at home mum, who took care of her young children at the time, cooked and cleaned and maintained the household. But her struggles with weight grew with her from when she was a child. In 1999, she decided to change her life and take matters into her own hands and started losing weight
, by walking around the clothesline in her back yard and creating a simple eating plan. She lost a total of 67kg in 13 months by doing it all on her own.
Karen then went on to write and publish 4 books, The Clothesline Diet (A Best Seller and in the top 10 ten for more than 12 weeks), The Clothesline Diet Club (also a Best Seller making it into the top 10 best seller list for 4 weeks), Why Can’t I Lose Weight and a revised edition of The Clothesline Diet which was also launched into the U.S.A.
Now the Clothesline Diet Club is a franchise, born out of the vision of Karen Gatt.

Unlike many other gyms and fitness centres with fancy fitouts, mirrors and skinny models, large weight rooms and overcrowded equipment, The Clothesline Diet Club is a unique business model focused very strongly on delivering life changing outcomes for its members.
Karen Gatt has had great success as both a woman who overcame her weight problem by following a simple program and as a motivator and encourager for other women, men and children facing similar issues. As the author of 4 books and having appeared on the Oprah show and current affair on a number of occasions, Karen knows firsthand just what her brand has achieved and what it can achieve via franchising the model worldwide. The sky really is the limit so why not join the team?

As part of the desire of Karen and Jason Gatt to make the franchise model affordable and easy to set up, the upfront franchise fee including all training is just $49,000 + gst. The cost to fit out and decorate a typical Clothesline Diet Club premises is less than $50,000, if you add legal costs for the documents of $2500 + gst plus other nominal costs it makes The Clothesline Diet Club a less than $120k investment. Compared to the $400K + asked by some other “gym franchises”
