Body Fit Training was founded by Cameron Falloon who had an extensive career as the S+C coach for high profile AFL and soccer teams. He was  also the personal trainer for Princess Diana and Richard Burnet who has also worked with Essendon and GWS Giant. It is a very popular franchise with the Australian professional athlete community, with several key athletes owning franchises. 

Essendon FC star Zach Merrett owns 3 BFT’s; Mitch Aubusson from Sydney Roosters owns BFT Ballina and Tim Paine, current Australian cricket captain, has secured the Tasmanian franchise rights to BFT with former Aus cricketer George Bailey and AFL legend Nick Riewoldt .

AFL legend Nick Riewoldt said:

“As professional athletes, we have access to the best training methods out there. What we see and love about BFT is that those same elite programming methods are now accessible to anyone at any fitness level. The combination of cardio workouts, strength and conditioning elements, along with the progressive programming, is something we haven’t seen anywhere else.”

BFT is the fastest growing fitness community in Australia and they are quickly expanding into global fitness markets with studios in Singapore, New Zealand and the US. They use science and technology to drive positive outcomes for people at all fitness levels and the 50- minute sessions are programmed to help reduce fat and create lean muscle.
