Here at Fitness Australia, we professionalise exercise. We live and breathe it.
We’re a passionate and dynamic industry, and we’re also an industry that prides itself on being professional. That’s where Fitness Australia comes in. We want to help everyone in this great industry of ours to always be better.
There are lots of ways we do this, but here are the most important:
- We are the body that represents the Australian Fitness Industry
Both on a national and international stage, Fitness Australia represents not only those who are registrants and members of ours but the entire Australian Fitness Industry.
This includes working with Government on a local, state and federal level for best outcomes, responding to and providing information to media as the go-to credible source, and forming international alliances to learn and grow our industry on home soil.
- We administer the Australian Register of Exercise Professionals
The Australian Register of Exercise Professionals ensures that those who have the skills and qualifications to deliver safe and effective exercise services to the Australian community are registered to practice. Not only does this provide credibility to those on it, it also provides a level of assurance and confidence for consumers, employers and health professionals.
- We develop industry standards and guidelines
We know it’s not very exciting, but for any professional industry, standards and guidelines are super important. We develop these using evidence-based research and best practice and often work with other professional bodies. This means that trainers, instructors and fitness business owners have the resources that allow them to work safely and provide a high quality of service.
- We facilitate education and career pathways
Being professional means continually updating your knowledge and skills. We facilitate this through the continuing education system, which promotes ongoing learning for all Registered Exercise Professionals, and events and seminars for our business owners. This assists you to make exercise your profession, outside of it being just a job.
We’re here to professionalise exercise. Let’s do it together.
