The Fun Factory hasn’t been at Jenke Circuit in years – It moved to behind the Fyshwick markets about 3 years ago.

So was the fire at the Fun Factory (Fyshwick) or at the old premises (now a swimming centre) in Jenke circuit?

Former location of Prime Movers gym which closed down in 1993 after the owner signed thousands of members to five year contracts, took all the gym’s money and disappeared off the face of the Earth. “Believed to be somewhere in Qld” one news report at the time said. I wonder if they ever caught up with him?

Didn’t Steel City Gym in Belconnen allegedly pull a similar scam in the late 80′s?
