Introducing the Industry Council, Fitness Australia Chief Executive Bill Moore explained “it’s essential that we’re relentless in understanding the needs of the Australian fitness industry in order to best serve our members.

“The appointment of this Industry Council allows us to gain important insights that will assist the Fitness Australia Board and Management team in our ongoing planning.”

The Industry Council will:

• Act as an advisory group for Fitness Australia’s Board and management team on current and emerging issues and opportunities that may impact upon the fitness industry;
• Help to ensure that decisions made are reflective of and responsive to the concerns of those who are impacted by the decisions;
