World Gym announces Australian expansion plans

World Gym announces Australian expansion plans
February 13, 2017

US-based World Gym International has announced that it is open 30 new fitness facilities around during 2017 including eight in Australia.

While exact locations are yet-to-be announced, it is believed that one site will open in Adelaide.

The successful franchise announced a global expansion that would also see new clubs in Brazil (one), Canada (three), Egypt (three), Mexico (three) Taiwan (seven) the United Kingdom (one) and the United States (five).

Additional clubs in China also are planned and will be operated by John Caraccio and Michael Sanciprian of World Gym Taiwan.

In a statement, World Gym Director Marcus Cammilleri advised “2016 was an incredible year for the World Gym family.

“With new agreements for gyms in eight countries, on six continents, we are proud to be the fastest growing full-service global gym brand for several years now.”

Cammilleri attributed the growth of World Gym’s franchising program to its international team’s marketing and sales efforts, as well as a robust peer network of 210 club owners across the globe.

Last year, the company announced its intention to expand to 220 locations in Europe by 2020. World Gym currently operates more than 200 franchised locations in 20 countries including 15 clubs in Australia.
