DALLAS, TX (July 13, 2016) – Gold’s Gym, the world’s leading authority on health and fitness, announced today that it has made several key moves to continue its rapid expansion efforts across Australia.
The company announced it has parted ways with its master franchisee, Leigh Taylforth. Effective Thursday, July 14, the following gym locations will no longer be affiliated with the Gold’s Gym brand: Fyshwick, Gunghalin, Tuggeranong, Bondi Beach, and Townsville.
In addition, the company formalized new direct deals with owners of the Miranda and Rockingham Gold’s Gym locations, enabling them to continue to grow their operations.

them in our system,” said Craig Sherwood, senior vice president for franchising and international, Gold’s Gym.
Gold’s Gym plans to open 50 gyms during the next ten years in Adelaide, Brisbane, Mackay, Sydney and Perth. The company is dedicated to meeting the demands of the growing Australian fitness market and delivering the same high caliber of service that Gold’s Gym is known for across the world.
