Fitaz Functional Kinetics
Aaron McAllister is co-director and co-founder of one of Australia’s biggest online global fitness brands, FitazFK as well as a co-founder of Brisbane’s freshest gym, FitazFK Gym, Kangaroo Point.
Teaming up with close mate and fellow co-founder, Georgio Batsinilas, the pair launched FitazFK in April 2015, selling online fitness programs. Two years later, Aaron (alongside two other business partners), turned their online fitness movement into a physical venture, with the launch of FitazFK Gym in Kangaroo Point.
Aaron, worked closely alongside his wife and interior designer, Yasmin, spending months planning, preparing, sourcing & designing their project. However, Yasmin’s life was tragically taken in a freak accident in Camp Hill on June 14, 2017, while she was walking to work.
After a few tough months, Aaron knew he couldn’t give up and knew Yasmin wanted him to carry on with getting the job done, officially opening FitazFK Gym in October 2017. As an ode to Yasmin, FitazFK Gym also features a very special, larger than life mural of Yasmin.
Today, Aaron’s vision for the gym is to create a space that’s more “than just a gym” but more a community and family, and you will always see him on the gym floor, interacting and getting to know his 600+ members. After being nominated for Dancing CEOs, it was no doubt Aaron wanted to be involved with such a great cause.
Aaron’s determined character and positive outlook on life, is nothing but contagious, so going up for the challenge as a Dancing CEO, is something he is actually quite excited about.
