TRAVIS Jones has come a long way since selling his house to help finance his first gym in Melbourne five years ago.
The Perth-bred fitness trainer now owns a chain of gyms under his Result Based Training business and recently opened his ninth in Joondalup.
It comes a year after starting a gym in Balcatta and he now has gyms in two states, the UK and US, and plans to open another in Myaree in October.
“I’m very proud to be opening in Joondalup; I’m a Perth boy and going back home in a sense,” he said.
“We’re a body transformation gym, increasing strength and decreasing fat; we get men and women looking great on the beach.”
He lived in his first gym for a year after selling his house.
“You do what you do to get your dream. We got back on our feet and have expanded the business in the UK, US and Australia,” he said.
His partner in the Winton Road gym, which has four staff, is Ryan Dickson.
