The Danish Fitness World Group acquires basefit.ch, the second largest and fastest growing fitness chain in Switzerland with roughly 70,000 members. After the entry of Verium in 2015, basefit.ch showed a continued growth trajectory with the number of clubs increasing from 6 to 33. Fitness World Group is the largest fitness chain in Denmark with about 190 fitness centers and over 500,000 members. The management of basefit.ch, the founder Stefan Lüben and the majority of the Verium investors strongly believe in the future potential and have re-invested a significant amount in the Fitness World Group in the course of this transaction.
