Sports Law #8: True Fitness

The abrupt and controversial closure of True Fitness last month gave lawyers Richard Wee and Lesley Lim the perfect opportunity to ponder some questions at the core of sports law - Is fitness a sport? What difference does it make to gym goers whether what they do in a gym is considered a sport or not? Does the fitness industry as a whole require more regulation? Richard and Lesley attempt to answer all these as well as what Australia and South Africa can teach us to prevent something like this from happening again.
