Established in 2011, Busylizzy is the U.K’s leading boutique fitness club for new and expectant parents. Just like a gym, members pay a monthly membership fee and come together to enjoy fitness and fun classes with like minded new friends throughout their maternity leave. Classes take place in local family friendly studios and online. Busylizzy has blueprinted a series of different classes for parents to enjoy each week – from Mummy&Me Pilates to Baby Massage, Mumstobee Yoga to Bootcamp. There’s something for everyone from pregnancy to 2 years.

In 2014, Busylizzy franchised to offer the club experience to new and expectant parents across the U.K . As a Management franchise, the Busylizzy business attracts new mums looking for an alternative family-friendly career after their maternity leave. To date, 29,000 parents have enjoyed a Busylizzy club experience, delivered by franchisees across the country.

The Busylizzy business has been featured in national publications and won numerous awards – most notably The British Franchise Association Emerging Business 2016 where head judge Andrew Brattesani, UK head of franchising for HSBC, said: “This is a modern and dynamic business built in the image of its founder. It’s been set up to maximise current technologies and make things as flexible as possible for its franchisees, and is delivering impressive results for them. Certainly one to watch in coming years.”

The business was co-founded by school friends Julie Clabby, leisure professional and Sarah Batterbury, solicitor who together wanted to bring a more flexible, professional and fun class experience to their own maternity leave experience. Fast forward 10 years and Julie has been shortlisted for the Great British Entrepreneur Award 2021 and is listed as 1 of only 190 Qualified Franchise Professionals in the U.K.

Busylizzy is a fun, yet serious business, set up in the shadows of its founders to support new and expectant parents with classes and flexible working opportunities. We love to chat, share ideas and contribute so if you’d like to get in touch with us about commercial partnerships, franchise opportunities, how we can support your employees on maternity leave or with media requests, we’d love to hear from you.
