SASSOM Fitness was started by Marcus Collings as a mobile Personal Training business working from different gyms and local parks. After renting space in other gyms for a few years, Marcus found a new location in Woolloongabba. The location was a rundown warehouse, but with a vision and a lot of hard work and some much needed help from friends & family SASSOM Fitness was reborn. Marcus has always had a passion for & trained in Martial Arts so he joined his Martial Arts schools together with his fitness business and became SASSOM Fitness & MMA. This was around the same point in time that Marcus’ now wife Karla started to help with the running of the business, and this has helped add that much needed female touch to SASSOM Fitness & MMA.
The new SASSOM Fitness & MMA was opened in February 2005 and since then has seen an expansion in floor space, equipment and staff. This ever evolving business is committed to providing a top quality service at an affordable price. We believe that no two people are the same, so everyone is assessed and treated as an individual. The atmosphere at SASSOM Fitness & MMA is relaxed and friendly. We strive to give everyone a fun and functional training experienc
In February 2012 Marcus relocated SASSOM Fitness & MMA to a new building in East Brisbane that would provide more space and even some car parks for the members. This move gave the chance for the Martial Arts to have their own area for training and included a new Boxing Ring and MMA Cage. The gym also had some new equipment and dedicated Olympic Lifting platforms. It also gave us the ability to change to a 24/7 fitness facility.
In July 2015 Marcus sold the 24/7 Fitness side of the business the gym continues to run from the same building under a different name and owner. This major change has given Marcus the ability to focus on the Martial Arts business and his Personal Training clients.
