That lease of life comes in the shape of a Fitness Australia led joint venture to acquire FILEX – Australia’s premier fitness education event.
The announcement was made by Fitness Australia CEO Bill Moore, and clearly Bill was excited to deliver what was an historic moment for the Australia fitness industry as the FILEX convention approaches it’s 30th year of delivering education in the areas of business, personal training, group fitness, nutrition, physio and exercise therapy, lifestyle and exercise medicine, aqua and coaching to the Australian fitness community.
“Having Fitness Australia lead the FILEX Convention as of 2018 represents a major milestone for the Association and our members, and clearly describes our future direction.”
Bill added, “Our 2020 Strategic Plan calls for a heavy focus on meaningful engagement, proactive leadership and service excellence – the annual FILEX event encapsulates all three of these elements.”
Nigel Champion, Executive Director of Australian Fitness Network stated, “Over the past 30 years it has been our privilege to establish one of the premier fitness events in the world. I have no doubt that Fitness Australia will continue the FILEX legacy by delivering a convention that will inspire and educate fitness instructors, personal trainers and business operators in our dynamic industry.”
