About us

Our story

Fitness & Lifestyle Group (FLG) was formed in 2016 when Australian private equity firm Quadrant, identifying significant growth opportunities in the health and fitness market, created a holding company to make acquisitions in the sector.

That same year, it acquired Goodlife Health Clubs Australia, Fitness First Australia and Jetts Fitness, appointing Goodlife CEO Greg Oliver into the role of Fitness & Lifestyle Group CEO and Managing Director.

The acquisitions immediately created a supergroup of clubs to which Barry’s, Zap Fitness and California Fitness & Yoga were also subsequently added.

Spanning premium, mid-market and low-cost models, as well as strong digital offerings, FLG’s 385+ locations across Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore cement the Group’s status as Asia Pacific market leader.

Driven by

Ours is a people business, with strong team- and member-focused values embedded across our Group.​

We exist to make a difference in people’s lives, and it’s our FLG Family – our own team members – who forge the invaluable relationships that make that happen.

​The purpose-driven nature of our business shines through in our CSR work, too. From our partnership with mental health-focused Black Dog Institute in Australia and our support for the Heartbeat Vietnam children’s charity to the work each of our clubs does at a community level to support local charities and organisations, FLG leads by example in making a positive difference to people’s lives and societal wellbeing.
