In a new innovation for the fitness industry in Melbourne, this Friday will see the staging of the Ignite Women's Gym and Fitness Business event.

It will also cover business owner specific issues including setting up and understanding superannuation, property and taxation in the fitness industry.

IGNITE founder Mel Tempest (pictured) explains “industry trailblazers, mavens, pioneers, innovators and ground-breakers are invited to join like-minded leaders and trendsetters who are passionate about doing things differently.

“We have new business concepts that are easy to follow and implement into any size business and we have some strategies for you to become stronger financially.

“We have an amazing group of presenters who have worked hard to deliver great education and have wisdom to pass on that will assist you in your business, career and personal life.”

Being held on Friday 23rd August at the Intercontinental Melbourne the Rialto and will also feature networking opportunities for personal trainers, gym owners, franchised clubs and fitness suppliers.

Tempest adds that the Ignite Women's Gym and Fitness Business will “leave delegates with strategies to help build stronger foundations in their current businesses, possible start-ups, in their place of employment and on their personal lives.
