I’d heard of TRIBE Team Training (TRIBE) before but questioned how it could be that different to the group sessions run by thousands of qualified instructors across Australia. Strangely enough, the first clue was in the name… Continue reading

The Amazing Sheridan

“Hi. I just wanted to share my experience tonight, I have been doing the Frankston classes, with this being my third week. My boys, 4 and nearly 2, come with me. We have a ritual at bedtime to talk about our favourite part of the day. Tonight Mr 4’s favourite part of the day was seeing our instructor Sheridan at “exercise”. He told his Dad that when we see Sheridan we get to do push ups, mountain climbers and get strong. Thank you for this incredible program, and for the amazing Sheridan who includes the kids wherever possible and makes me feel so welcome and comfortable in an active environment. And the gift of an active, positive role model for my kids is priceless. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Live Live Get Active.”​ Continue reading

FITREC Professionals, Here’s an Open Letter for Fitness Employers.

photo_2018-04-10_13-23-28

FITREC has made a fantastic impression on the Australia fitness industry in just a few short years. Unfortunately, our growth has outpaced many long established recruitment processes, leading to confusion in some instances.

While professionals have done a great job of updating employers in their area, we want things to be easier. So, we’ve written an open letter for all fitness employers to introduce FITREC, outline the benefits of FITREC registration as well as clarify the right of every industry professional to choose who they register with, or even if they register at all (naturally, we highly recommend it).

Please note, to ensure the accuracy of information surrounding the Fair Work Act and fitness registration, this letter was written with assistance from our legal team.  Continue reading
