Founded in 2020 by husband and wife duo Tiarne & Daniel Bova, the space is like no other. Beautifully interior designed, offering more than any regular gym, with an amazing gym floor, recovery room & weights room

Dan has been in the fitness industry for 8 years. After 5 years of owning and directing 3 world-class F45 studios, Dan noticed a gap in the market and wanted to build a space, for what he believed was missing in the fitness industry. It was the perfect time for Dan to go out on his own and open his dream gym THE YARD in his own ‘backyard’-
The Sutherland Shire, Sydney NSW.

Tiarne has been part of the fashion industry for 10 years, working for Cosmopolitan Magazine as a stylist & co-owning the fashion label ZALIAH. Tiarne has always been passionate about interior design and has had a clear vision for the marketing, aesthetics & merchandise from the get go.

They make a strong team with Dan focusing on the gym floor, the sessions + the look/feel of the space, with Tiarne driving the marketing, social media & aesthetics.


"Since leaving F45 in 2019 (with ZERO involvement since), I have really missed the camaraderie of working with a like-minded, passionate team.

I have also thoroughly missed the fitness industry.

I have been presented endless fitness concepts, with opportunities to invest, but one model stood out for me. One that truly aligns with my core values.

It is THE YARD GYM @theyard_gym.

Dan @danbova and Tiarne @tiarnebova have built a phenomenal business. One that is focused on brand, innovation, and creating incredible communities - all things I am passionate about. We have a shared vision for what a great fitness and franchise business can deliver, and I'm thrilled to announce that I'm joining them as a partner & strategic advisor.

I am excited to add value and experience to build on Dan's expertise, adding confidence to the people, our franchisees and the fitness industry.

In just 2 years of franchising, the Yard will have 50 franchises sold by year-end. We aim to ensure a strong future for our franchisees, trainers and clients.

I am pumped to be joining this epic business."
