Australia’s ambassador Goldberg is a fitness entrepreneur and founder of Airfitness with a professional life focussed on applications and software products that enhance how humans connect with technology to create more sustainable jobs in the fitness industry.

WIFA founder Lindsey Rainwater explains “our global presence is such a vital thread in the fabric of what makes WIFA so impactful to the women in the fitness industry.
