Fitness Australia has announced the appointment of a new Industry Council, an advisory group to provide advice and forum for consultation on issues relating to the diverse range of businesses operating in the fitness industry.

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.”

“I’m confident that the diversity of experience, knowledge and the level of credibility of the newly appointed Council members will assist in our ongoing planning, enabling us to continue to grow the reach and influence of the industry.”

The members of Fitness Australia’s Industry Council are:

• Anna Liptak, His and Her Time

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;
• Regularly engage with other Council members, the Board and management to discuss issues, share information and participate in project groups as required;
• Draw on the perspectives of a range of representatives from the business community to scan the environment, and monitor trends, needs and problems;
