ZAP’S $5 MILLION TASSIE EXPANSION
Zap Fitness, Tasmania’s home-grown 24-hour fitness chain, has begun a major $5 million redevelopment and equipment upgrade of its 23 state-based gyms.
In the south, plans include doubling the size of its Kingston and Hobart City (Liverpool St) operations; extensions and upgrades to the Moonah and Rosny clubs; and equipment refurbishments for Battery Pt and Claremont.
Northern clubs earmarked for immediate extensions and equipment upgrades include Devonport, Kings Meadows and Newstead.
Zap will also introduce virtual and instructor cycling studios in its major clubs, following the successful trial of the concept at its Glenorchy Mega operation, as well as larger functional fitness zones.
Zap Fitness was conceived and nurtured in Tasmania and has now grown organically to nearly 40 privately-owned clubs across Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia.
“Our goal is to maintain our Tasmanian clubs as world leaders in health and fitness to cater for our ever-growing 20,000 plus members in the state,” says founder and chairman Bob Cheek.
“When a member joins one of our clubs they get to use all our network throughout Tasmania and Australia so it’s important they all meet the highest standards.”
“We’ve just returned from studying the latest trends world-wide and will implement the best ideas progressively throughout our clubs.”
Zap aims to hit 50 wholly-owned gyms within two years, as it continues to export its successful Tasmanian product to the rest of Australia and beyond.
