He said Body Fit’s science-based programs brought an elite level of fitness and training to ordinary people of any skill or strength level.
“It’s awesome for the general punter to have access to the great training programs that we’ve had,” Mr Bailey said.
He said Body Fit was one of the fastest growing fitness franchises in the country.
Mr Bailey said members could access any studio across Australia and abroad.
Mr Paine said there had not been a fitness enterprise quite like Body Fit in Tasmania before.
“The elite-level training is certainly something new for Tasmania,” he said.
Mr Riewoldt said he was drawn to the personalised nature of Body Fit’s training regime within a team environment.
The trio have exclusive rights for the Body Fit Training licence for the whole of the state.
