Fitness entrepreneur Rainer Schaller has built the world’s largest fitness empire in 25 years.

McFit is not just any fitness studio: it is the largest fitness chain in the world! Even in Switzerland, where there are no McFit gyms, the brand is a household name. It was founded in the late 1990s by German businessman Rainer Schaller (53), who died in an accident this weekend along with his wife and his two children.

The Schaller family plane with a total of six people on board crashed into the sea off the coast of Costa Rica. The occupants are unlikely to have survived; so far two bodies have been recovered.
