Women In Fitness Association welcomes Virgin Active South East Asia as first global club partner
The Women In Fitness Association (WIFA) has announced a partnership with Virgin Active South East Asia that has seen 41 women from Virgin Active SEA facilities become individual WIFA members.
As WIFA’s first global club partner, 14 women from Virgin Active locations in Singapore and 27 women from locations in Thailand are now valued Association members.
Looking forward to collaborating with the global health club brand, WIFA founder and Chief Executive, Lindsey Rainwater stated “it has been an aspiration of ours to collaborate with a global health club chain that has chosen to support the career development of their female employees. WIFA is very grateful Virgin Active has chosen to work with us in this way supporting women in fitness.
“In order to make true changes to the number of women in leadership roles, we must collaborate with companies willing to support their women excelling internally, and VA is demonstrating that, we are looking forward to this growing partnership.”
Rainwater has been working with David Norman, Head of Fitness of Virgin Active SEA to bring this initiative to life.
As Norman explained “I’m super excited to bring the WIFA initiative to Virgin Active SEA, we have great females in this business but having such a forum to grow and support females who work with and inspire other females (and males) I hope will be part of the catalyst for inspiration, aspiration and respect for more female leaders in a currently male dominated industry in this region”
WIFA is the global non-profit organisation that exists to support women of all ages and races to succeed both professionally and personally within the fitness industry.
