A top Australian fitness brand has just opened its first-ever Scottish site with the launch of a new state-of-the-art studio in Glasgow.

Opening this past weekend (Saturday, June 22) brand-new Body Fit Training (BFT) studio is a homecoming for studio owner Colin Fraser and, having only been open for less than a week, has already attracted over 100 members.

After discovering BFT while living in Sydney with his wife and three children, Colin revealed he only had to try BFT once to realise there was nothing quite like it - which set him on the way to becoming a franchise owner.

“It’s a game changer for fitness enthusiasts in Glasgow," revealed Colin. "I’ve done a lot of different fitness events in my life – Tough Mudder’s, Ironman events, even a 100-kilometre ultra-marathon – so I’ve experienced a lot of gyms and studios in my time. You quickly get a feel for what is good and what isn’t.

"I was blown away by BFT, there is nothing quite like it. A friend recommended it to me, I tried it once and I’d already made the decision that I was going to enquire about investing in a BFT franchise by the time I was on my way home."

Now, after launching two successful BFT studios in Australia, Colin and his family have recently moved back to Glasgow, to unveil Scotland's first-ever BFT studio.

With a strong focus on community and science-backed programming – originally developed for elite athletes – fitness fanatics in the city can now enjoy BFT’s ultimate strength and conditioning experience.

Colin added: "BFT is about so much more than just fitness, the community is like no other. It’s your own little supportive fitness family, pushing you to reach your targets and goals. Combine that with state-of-the-art fitness technology and programming and you’ve got a winning formula.”

He said that no matter what fitness level, BFT is designed to help individuals achieve fitness goals in a "supportive and high-energy environment".

Workouts and equipment are customisable for every level of fitness. With 14 unique class types to choose from, BFT's hybrid training approach combines elements like strength training, HIIT, and metabolic conditioning to help burn fat, build muscle and reach fitness goals faster.

Colin added: “The popularity of events like HYROX and cross-fit have surged in recent years, creating this growing demand for more hybrid training. Not only is it great for health and fitness, but it also helps keep things fresh and prevents injuries by not focusing on one specific area.

That’s exactly what BFT Glasgow offers, and I’m really pleased to return to my roots by launching here. We’re excited to be the first location in Scotland to bring this revolutionary approach to fitness to the community and I’m looking forward to making a difference on my own doorstep. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or just starting out, we invite you to come experience the BFT difference in person,” concludes Colin.
