Fitness industry peak body AUSactive has highlighted the more than 70 unique advantages that its members can use for their advantage.

Launching its membership advantages platform where members can easily access the unique benefits that directly support their career or their business, AUSactive Chief Executive, Barrie Elvish said the new platform was about providing a clear one-stop-shop of the full range of benefits on offer to all AUSactive members.

Elvish stated “imagine having a clear, easy-to-use platform where you can find and access all membership benefits.

“That’s exactly what we offer with our Advantages platform. No more confusion or hunting for membership benefits - everything you need is in one place.

“We offer our members a huge range of benefits and we know in the past this has been overwhelming to navigate. The new Advantages platform breaks down our benefits into four categories so that members can easily see what’s most relevant to them.”

From a student member starting in the industry through to experienced business owners, the new Advantages platform shows four categories:

  • Student Advantages: Get access to valuable resources, industry insights, and opportunities for professional growth. We’re here to support your journey.
  • Business Member Advantages: If you run a business, you’ll enjoy practical tools and services to help you thrive. This includes access to Lawpath, with over 300 legal and HR templates to simplify your operations.
  • Exercise Professional Advantages: As an exercise professional, you’ll find Advantages tailored to boost your career, from networking opportunities to advanced training resources.
  • Sole Trader Advantages: Sole traders enjoy the advantage of complete control over their business operations and finances, along with access to resources designed to support their unique needs.

Noting that AUSactive is focused on continuously improving membership value to ensure benefits remained relevant and practical for everyone in the industry, Elvish added “AUSactive continues to grow as an industry association and part of that growth is making sure we evolve with our members and their needs.

“Our Advantages platform is about organising all member benefits in one place to ensure all individual and business members can quickly access those that support their success and help them strive for excellence.”
