To help you navigate the way through, we’ve engaged presenters who’ve been where you’re going, and innovators who understand how to change the status quo.
“If your fitness business is looking to differentiate, diversify, innovate, or simply progress to the next level of success - whatever that means for you, then I invite you to come along and join me at the FILEX 2018 Business Summit, where you will gain the skills, knowledge and expertise to achieve your business goals.”
Speaking about Fitness Australia's acquisition of FILEX, Moore advises "strategically it was the perfect fit for Fitness Australia meeting our objectives of proactive leadership, meaningful engagement and service excellence.
“In addition, it underscores everything that Fitness Australia, and indeed the fitness industry at large, holds dear - continuing quality education, raising the standard of our service offering, and the continued growth of the industry. No other event could eclipse this triumvirate of features that makes our Australian fitness professionals world class.
“Fitness Australia’s ownership of FILEX tells the community, the government and the business world that the fitness industry is robust and creative, that it is a serious and valid contributor to the health of Australians, that it is a mature industry worthy of investment, and that it is committed to growth and improvement of quality fitness services.”
