Travis is a serial entrepreneur, major risk taker, business commentator and health & wellness trail blazer.

Known for being the man who has never written a business plan, Travis began his entrepreneurial journey like many entrepreneurs – essentially broke and living out of the space that his business occupied. In this case, it was Result Based Training’s first location in South Melbourne.

Jones’ ‘do what it takes’ mantra and work ethic helped grow Result Based Training into an internationally recognised gym, launching six gyms across three states within the first 24 months. The last five years has seen the growth of Result Based Training from one gym in 2013 to 21 by February, 2018.

His companies include:

- Result Based Training, a specialist body transformation gym in South Melbourne, with revenues in excess of $10million dollars.
- Think Tank Australia, a cutting-edge coaching business that helps guide and coach SME's on how to grow their businesses into successful brands. Started with his wife Liv Jones, it saw $1.5million turnover within its first year.
- Attain Digital Agency, also with Liv, is a digital marketing agency that manages over $1.5million dollars worth of client marketing campaigns.

Apart from their corporate ventures, both Travis and Liv have also gone on to create their passion project, If Not Now Then When, a foundation established to change the lives of children all over the world.
