How much is Joe Fournier worth?

How did Joe Fournier make his money?
After initially being forced to retire from boxing with a scaphoid injury, Fournier set up his own gym business.
As the company grew, he gained recognition as a personal trainer and started to work with a number of celebrity clients.
Fournier then sold the business and its studios to a FTSE 100 company in 2012.
The money he made from the sale was reinvested into nightclubs, opening a number of well known venues such as Whisky Mist, The Rose Club, Bonbonniere London, Streaky Gin and, most recently, Bonbonniere Mikonos.
