Australia’s leading provider of fitness educations events and expos, FILEX, announces that it has formed a new groundbreaking strategic partnership with renowned wellness, nutrition and fitness experts, the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers (AIPT), aiming to serve personal trainers from initial certification through to ongoing education for the entirety of their careers.
The partnership includes a twelve-month FILEX Premium Membership for AIPT student and graduates, ensuring Australia continues to produce the most rounded, passionate and knowledgeable personal trainers in the world.
General Manager of AIPT, Lance Williams, believes the partnership brings together two organisations with the same goals.
“The Australian Institute of Personal Trainers (AIPT) is proud to be partnering with FILEX as both brands are equally aligned in the relentless pursuit to continually improve the standard of education for all fitness industry professionals and associated businesses. Through this partnership, AIPT looks forward in supporting the next wave of fitness professionals that will undoubtedly require a wider range of skills and experiences to prosper within an ever-changing industry.”
The newly announced partnership also focuses on flexibility and convenience. In 2021, FILEX held its third Virtual Summit and continues its online education offering via fortnightly masterclasses for its members. AIPT has long understood the value of combining face-to-face with online, offering multiple, flexible learning options.
Anthony Reed, General Manager of FILEX, says both organisations believe in making things easier for personal trainers.
“Personal Trainers have one of the most rewarding but one of the toughest jobs around. Many are running their own business, they have to service specific client needs, they have to promote themselves and they are expected to stay up-to-date with the latest in fitness, programming and often working with a broad scope of clients. Both AIPT and FILEX are determined to remove some of the challenges and barriers for PTs who simply want to be better at what they do.”
As both organisations look towards the second half of 2021 and beyond, it is expected that the partnership will continue to find ways to assist new and experienced personal trainers, while improving the overall fitness education landscape in Australia.
For 30 years, the epicentre of the Australian fitness industry has been the FILEX fitness convention. FILEX has evolved into a year-round provider of professional development education events, both face-to-face and virtual, powered by Fitness Australia. www.filex.com.au
Established in 1999, the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers (AIPT) has grown from a handful of campuses in Queensland to a network of over 150 campuses and mentors Australia- wide. Experts in wellness, nutrition and fitness, the AIPT equips its students with the best in online and face-to-face education. www.aipt.edu.au
