FILEX ‘taster’ event to deliver education alongside The Fitness Show Melbourne

FILEX ‘taster’ event to deliver education alongside The Fitness Show Melbourne
September 27, 2019

As part of its aim to expand its reach by taking its education offering to major cities across the country with a series of localised events, fitness education leader FILEX has announced that it will be staging a half-day FILEX Taster event in Melbourne on Saturday 26th October.

Being held alongside The Fitness Show at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, the series, backed by Fitness Australia, is designed to offer fitness professionals and business owners practical learning experiences of the most in–demand topics.

Organisers of the event say “the FILEX Taster gives industry professionals a sample of the premium FILEX education experience; a snippet of what they can expect at the longest standing and leading fitness conference in the Asia Pacific region.”

Like the annual FILEX Convention, at the Taster, FILEX host a premium presenter where attendees learn from the best while having the chance to network with other passionate professionals.

The Taster keynote presentation, The Client Generation Formula for Fitness Professionals, will offer insight into how fitness professionals and business owners can build a dynamic and thriving fitness business.

Fitness industry expert and online marketing specialist Richard Toutounji will teach attendees the exact steps to engage in order to generate more clients for their fitness business.

Toutounji will share everything fitness professionals need to know to build a successful sales and marketing funnel in their fitness business, so they are no longer in ‘feast or famine’ mode but rather generating consistent leads and moving people through to the conversion stage.

Attendees will discover key takeaways from the event that they can implement immediately. They will find out the client-attraction secret that will get the attention of the right people; the engagement tactic that pre-sells clients 80% before they even walk into the gym or studio and 3 offers that work to guarantee a conversion.

Fitness Australia Chief Executive, Barrie Elvish will also present the latest in fitness industry initiatives and the way of the future for the peak body at the event.

Organisers add “in such a competitive industry environment giving professionals and business owners a roadmap for success could mean the difference between running a good business and a great business.”

Tickets are on sale now and priced just $49 with 2 CECs.
